Camping! Yay! We went back to Itasca this summer for the 3rd year in a row. We took the new truck! It had lots of room for all our gear and the girl's bikes!
One of the highlights was riding bike on the trails to the headwaters of the Mississippi River. Tom and I rented bikes and the girls rode their own. I had that crazy feeling of, wow...we feel like a big grown-up family now, everyone riding a bike, no training wheels, or bike-carts. It was exciting and sad all at the same time. These girls are growing up...and there is nothing we can do about it, but sit back and enjoy the ride.
The weather was the most ideal weather, camping-wise. No rain, we slept with the rain fly off at night and looked up from our cots to see the stars. We had a fantastic time!
Quite possibly, one of my favorite pictures of Lilah...
It ended up being our only camping trip this summer. We had another planned, but ended up having to cancel last minute :-(
