First Camping Trip

We just got back today from the boys' first camping trip! We went with my parents, aunts and uncles, and cousins to Deschutes State Park, which was just beautiful. The boys were so excited to go camping in Grandma and Papa's trailer. They got all sorts of toys and goodies to stock the trailer for whenever they go camping now.
As you can tell, Zachary and Tyler were very excited when we got the trailer set up that night.
They loved sitting at the 'big boy table' to do activities and eat meals.
The weather was absolutely beautiful and the boys loved putting on their boots and digging in the dirt, playing catch with the dogs' toys, and hiking.
Zachary is absolutely obsessed with basketball. We have this little suction cup hoop that he absolutely insisted on taking with him. We stuck it on the outside of the trailer and he shot baskets for what seemed like hours! He even got the adults taking turns to see who was the best shot around the campfire.
We all got to go on a hike along the river. The boys loved watching the dogs play in the water and the trains go by on the other side while we walked.

The basketball hoop and ball even had to go with us on our walk (sigh). Yes, he wore the hoop on his head like a hat during the walk.

We had the best time! The boys got to sleep in their new sleeping bags for the first time, and got to make Jiffy Pop popcorn over the fire. Of course my camera batteries died after the first full day so no more pics, but you get the idea. : )
