Easter Camping

We camped with some friends for Easter this year. More specifically, we went to Yogi Bear's Jellystone campground. 

The last time John and I camped was before we had kids. We didn't have any gear so we bought a tent and borrowed everything else. Our friends really knew what they were doing. They set up this condo:

While we popped this little number up across the tracks:

It's probably a great tent if you don't put it in a low spot just before a major storm. (Yes, we did that and it filled with water and collapsed on us.)

There was fishing,


campfire fun,

and even relays.

But this may have been the all time favorite among the kids.

Oh sure, Ben looks a bit concerned, but with good reason. Safety didn't seem to be the driver's top priority.

Here's the only proof that I was there:

And the best proof that the kids had a great time:

I would be remiss if I didn't mention the egg hunt. It was Easter, after all. Between the egg hunt that the campground hosted and the one we did the next morning, there was plenty of ooey gooey goodness to go around.

The best part of the weekend was the blessing of spending Easter among spiritual family--enjoying God's creation and our friendship together. How wonderful it is to have children who understand that Easter is truly about the gift God has given us in His Son's sacrifice!
