El Capitan State Beach
We went camping with the Davis family on September 9th through the 11th. It was supposed to be 3 nights, but by the middle of the 3rd day, along with at least 1 kid crying almost every half hour, we were all ready to get back to our own homes. It was a fun time though! It was the first time all adults have ever camped with their own kids so the previous camping experiences were quite a breeze. Despite this, we do plan on making this a yearly trip! That way the kids have something to look forward to and hopefully one day they can blog the trips too!
This is Owen's famous squat. He's really good at it! He found a bunch of ants and had to get a closer look!

Our campsite, #4. It was just the right size and in just the right spot. The kids had enough room to run around, kick up dirt and fall. Yes, they all fell a lot! We forgot to bring a table to cook on so Greg's tail gate served as the perfect area to use the stoves on.
Here the kids are patiently awaiting breakfast! This was a rare time for them to all be sitting on their camping chairs...unless it was to eat smores!
Owen didn't care about roasting the marshmallow! He just ate them straight from the bag! After roasting marshmallows on our second night, it was time to get the kids cleaned up! This was truly a challenge! I decided I could shower and get Owen showered at the same time. It involved some major prep to be sure everything was at hand because the showers were coin operated. And Owen hates the shower so I had to talk him through the entire time while he clung to me with the grip of death! Surprisingly, it only took 4 quarters for Owen and I and we made it through the shower all fresh and clean! Next time, he's showering with Greg!
MORE PICS OF OUR DAY AT THE BEACH TO COME SOON!
