Camping Trip # 2 was just as special as # 1, however this time there was no rain in site but we did have beautiful 85 degree weather, it was a good thing that the water was within walking distance and we sure took advantage of that everyday!
Packing up to leave was a lot easier this time with the trailer parked in our front drive for a couple of days. I was able to clean, pack and shop all with Mitchell's help. The Osorio's went with us on this trip, that was AWESOME!!! Aaron came over a couple of days before we went to pick up all the dirtbikes and equipment.
After we arrived and set up camp, we headed right down to the water for a dip to cool off! It was too perfect, we could see the water from our site in one direction and snow on the mountains in the other direction. Breathtaking!
The Osorio Family (our best friends)
Logan and Mateo loved each other, they had a blast playing in the water, dirt, or with trucks the entire time. They were full of love for one another too, which made Roman a little jealous. He informed us that Mateo never gives him hugs or kisses, and that he wished he did. Too Cute!
Logan liked walking around in the water the first day, he wasn't too sure about the tempurature of the water though. (the pool for swim lessons is heated, and so is the bath of course.)

Water action photos, Mitchell's favorite, Maria and Aaron holding hands and jumping in together. What daredevils!!!!
I never built up the courage to jump in with Mitchell, he won't let me forget that, maybe next trip. He sure got his fill of the water and jumping in though.
Mateo and Logan took quite some time figuring out how to fix that little green chair, after they had some milk and relaxed from swimming. They laughed, talked and even yelled at one another. It will be interesting to see these two when they are older, playing, laughing and talking about sports and girls. That is all going to happen too fast for Maria and I.

(too cute for words!!)
Pa surprised Logan and rode his motorcycle up on Wednesday night, but Logan was just being put to sleep by the time he arrived. So we waited to surprise him until Thursday morning! Let me tell you he was VERY excited, he never let Pa out of his site the entire day. Which was a good thing for Mitchell and I, because Mitchell taught me how to ride a dirtbike, once again. It has been about 4 years or so since I have riden one.
Mitchell and his dad have the same form when jumping in the water.
Back to the water after that long hot ride!!! We were all sweaty and hungry from riding all morning, it was awesome, I only layed the bike down once and I only stauled a few times. I didn't really forget what to do, but I had two of the best teachers you could ask for. Thanks Dad, (Keith) and Mitchell!!!!
Can't wait to ride again!

It was a great trip!!! Logan had a blast, came home with a lot of cuts and bruises but nothing is broken he isn't sunburnt, unlike me, and he is sleeping in his crib happily. Can't wait for the next camping trip, we are ready to go again.
