Camping Trip

Well, we had our very first family camping trip! It was actually Zeke and Maggie's first too. Zeke is not exactly a fan of camping, but with 3 boys, Maggie wanted him acclimated. So, she invited us along! The girls did better than I expected and since Luke and I really enjoy camping, there will definitely be more to come! We were at Ensign Ranch and everything was wonderful except for the hundreds and hundreds of mosquitos that were there. The girls got away without any bites... might have something to do with the fact that I was spraying them about every 45 minutes. Luke and I were not so lucky, but it wasn't too bad.
Here are some pictures - Enjoy!
They had a really nice FREE slip and slide and so we all went and had a GREAT time. Lily went down about 5-6 times. But after she got splashed in the face 3 times in a row she was done. Arya did about 3-4 but she screamed and cried every time. We're such nice parents. :)

From the Mouth of my soon-to-be 3 year old

Lily has become more and more aware of herself lately. She's always been a clean/neat freak about her appearance and her body in general but lately she's more into her clothing and picking out what she likes, etc. This morning when I handed her some clothes to put on, she picked up her shirt, examined it and said:

Lily: "Oh no!"
Me: "It's ok, it's just wrinkled, put it on."
Lily: "Wrinkled? Like you?"

I didn't think I was getting wrinkles yet!!!! After she got her clothes on, she then proceeded to say, "I'm going to go look at myself in the mirror." Oh boy! I didn't think that they start that young! I know that kids pick up on what we do and say, but I didn't think that I checked myself out in the mirror that often! Things you learn!
