First camping trip = SUCCESS!

We were planning on being at a pig show this weekend.
But Preston's pig got a cough so we decided not to go.
So, Friday afternoon we thought it would be a great idea to take the camper out on it's maiden voyage!
The kids have been dying to go ever since we bought it and parked it in the driveway!!!
We chose to stay close to home for our first trip...just in case everything went downhill fast.
We drove about 25 minutes to Lake Belva Deer near Sigourney.
It was a great choice!
The campground was BEAUTIFUL, clean, well maintained and tons of paved trails for the kids bikes and hiking.
And there was fishing too!
I didn't get any pictures of our first night...we were busy setting up and getting two excited kids to bed!
They loved having breakfast in the camper.
Waffles, sausage, eggs and fruit-all of their favorite things!

Bubba and his Strider bike are never far apart.
He has gotten SO FAST on that thing!

There was a whole lot of this all weekend.

Dustin's parents stopped on their way to Indianola for lunch and some hiking and fishing.

Grandpa Dale and Bubba are fishing buddies.

There were lots of things for this guy to study on.

I'm sure there were some interesting conversations at their spot on the pond.

Preston caught a really nice fish!
You would have thought he had caught a shark though-he did NOT want to be near it!!!!

Peighton is quite the fisherman as well.
Dustin took them out in the morning while I did some errands (had to get a new battery for the camper) and she caught 4 fish that she was very proud of!

But she loses interest a little faster than Bubba.
So we took Grandma Deb on a short hike back to the camper.

After biking, fishing, biking, eating, hiking, biking, the playground and some more biking these two OBVIOSULY needed a break!
Thank goodness for a comfy spot with a movie in the camper!!!!

Saturday night we had to roast hot dogs and s'mores for dinner.

Dustin's pants were a hot topic of conversation for the kids.
We lovingly call them his "Shants."
They are pants that unzip to make shorts...shorts and pants...therefore "Shants."
Preston wants a pair in his size...

Preston is a very serious hot dog roaster.

Such a great way to spend a weekend!
On the drive home Preston wanted to know when we were going to go again.
I'm pretty sure we'll be doing lots of camping this summer!
