Camping as a family for the first time!

I am reposting this from July 29th, 2009, because some sickos are commenting on my blog and I wanted to erase their comments and the pic they are commenting on. We went camping this weekend about 25 miles away on the St. Croix river (borders WI and MN). It took us three stops and many hours to get there. It wasn't car camping. We actually had to hike in almost a mile. Downhill and uphill. We had to make multiple trips because we just couldn't carry it all. It was... tiring. Eric was the main mule, though, and I'm thankful for his strong, sexy muscles. We brought Tootie and that was my main regret of the trip. She loved it and had a blast, but she was pretty annoying. She was anxious a lot of the time and if we let her off the 30 foot leash, she ran out of our site. So, if we do this again, it will be sans dog. Cal was exhausted when we left this evening and fell asleep in the car at 6:15pm, even though he knew we were stopping at Jamba Juice. Ike took a nap today, though, and I'm pretty sure he's still awake from all the excitement (9 o'clock). Turkey. These pictures are out of order because of stupid blogger. The more I use facebook, the more I hate blogger. Anyone else? Eric making lunch for us.
When there's nothing to do, this is what you do- organize the chairs.

Climbing up a stinking steep hill.

Crazy kids.

Cal is dancing here.
Cal took this picture of his hot mom.
Cal is afraid of climbing any higher. He's getting wussier as he ages.
And then there's Ike- he did this all by himself and was proud and not fearful. Our camp. The boys slept in the far tent and we had to switch it up in the middle of the night b/c they kept having issues (lost blankie, messed up sleeping bag, etc).
The Toots.
We went to Sonic on the way there. Here's Ike playing with the trash with a corndog stuffed in his mouth.
