One Last Hurrah.....

We had to squeeze one last camping trip in before school starts and we are forced to get back into a routine. We went to McGary canyon up by Kilgore and had a wonderful time. In fact, Chase pretty much sums up our feelings about this camping trip in his picture below...
Wyatt was funny on this trip. As soon as he woke up, he would put on his helmet. He wanted to ride on the Motorcycle all day. He wouldn't settle for the 4 wheelers. This was his expression when he found out he had to wait until after breakfast to go for a ride...
Abby says the reason we go camping is to get dirty. She did a good job of living up to that motto this trip.
Morgan did a great job of getting dirty too. This was after the kids thought it would be fun to draw beards and mustaches out of dirt on their faces. Too funny.
Abby and some of her cousins found the only spot in camp with loose dirt and decided it would be fun to play like it was a beach. What would the beach be if you didn't bury someone in the sand?
Abby was the lucky recipient. Look at those legs. Morgan was kind enough to dig up dirt so they had plenty to work with.
After all that dirt, we decided to cool off and clean off a little in the creek.
I dipped Chase's toes in the water and this was his reaction. (Mean old mommy!)
Abby thought it felt awesome!
Hangin' out under the bridge with some cousins.
Morgan and Josh enjoying a deep spot.

Abby was splashing her dad in this picture. I love the little look in her eye!

Wyatt was ecstatic to find a mossy spot in the water. What is with boys and gross things?
Yum, Yum!!

We had quite the eventful trip. Tracy kissed a frog and was disappointed that his prince didn't come -- JK.

Abby and and Ally had a double wedding to their cousin Kaden. They even had fresh bouquets of wild flowers and beautiful hand-crafted veils.

Wow, what fun. Until next year!

Looks like so much fun. You are brave with a young one, but it looks like it was worth it!
