1st Official Camping Trip!

We were SO excited to be reunited with our Illinois buddies…we met half way in the Wisconsin Dells…
Lilah, Jayden, Vivianne & Ari + Their Floaties

We fished in a stocked pond…

We could actually see the fish swimming…

Even Lilah had a try at it…

We hoped for the BIG one, but didn’t catch squat. However—-we did bond over worms :-)

Lilah fell in love with the water (thank goodness for investing in the floatie)…
lovin' her turtle floatie

She did awesome…

She’d chant, “I’m almost there. I’m almost there. I’m almost there.”

She really wasn’t almost there.

But, she kept on, so determined, from one side of the pool to the next, her little legs just a kicking, moving millimeters at a time.

lilah on her own!

To her she was probably moving at lightening speed. She was doing it by herself and that’s all that mattered…

We swam…

And played old ones…

Slowing down wasn’t an option…
so happy

Ice cream was devoured…

Dance parties were a must….
always dancing

The kids never stopped moving.

We hiked…a little…

Clothing was kept to a minimum. So were showers. And no one cared.

It was awesome.
