Because Jerry took a day off to come to our new babe's ultrasound, we decided to take the long weekend and camp. It was Easter weekend and the weather was beautiful!!
|And we're off! This was our first time taking the motor home with the Blazer in tow. It was a fun ride and the boys all did well. Mostly they stayed in their seats and napped. It was about a 3-4 hour drive up to Gun Lake, MI where we were staying.|
One of our first stops was Walmart. We bought James and Lucas each a fishing pole, which was great. Our site backed up to a finger of the lake and so, every chance they got, they were casting their rubber fishes into the lake. Lucas was good at getting everything tangled, but James really got the hang of it in a hurry. Next time we'll have to get a hook and lures and send him out to catch our dinner. :)
|Our site. The crumby thing about camping in highly populated areas is that you have neighbours. At least it wasn't too busy when we went (the park wasn't officially opened) and the neighbours we did have were nice.|
See the man in the waders in the photo on the left? James accidentally "caught" him when he was casting out. Good thing it was just a rubber fish and not a hook!
|Because it was Easter weekend, we had to decorate some eggs. I forgot the vinegar so the colours weren't too vibrant, but the boys were amused still. Besides, they just decorated them with stickers.|
