The Boy's First Camping Trip!

Jason's been dreaming of the day he could go camping with his boy since long before we were even pregnant! (Good thing God gave us a boy!) So a couple weekends ago, he took Carson over to Henry Cowell Redwood state park (about 5 minutes from our house) to stay the night out in the wild! Carson was so excited and told everyone about it a couple days leading up to the trip. I took the kids to Gilroy Gardens Friday morning and they napped on the way home, so he was well rested when Jason got off work a little early to take Carson away for the night. I so wished I could have been a little fly on the wall of that tent to see his reaction to everything (we have to buy a bigger tent if we all want to go camping!). He had a great time. They played in the dirt, threw rocks and sticks, went for a walk, climbed on branches, etc. They roasted hot dogs and had s'mores. Carson snuggled up in my sleeping bag and slept all night long! Here are a few pics:

That is so fun!! Eric and Molly have talked about having a campout in the backyard this summer. We'll see if it happens...Ellie and I will probably choose to sleep in the air conditioning : )
