A Camping We Will Go...

We don't just love Albuquerque for it's weather, the mountain, the availability of things to do, the cost of living, a great job...a BIG part of why we love it is because we quickly found so many good friends here.  We play with our homeschool friends, but don't get nearly as much time to play with our work friends.
So we decided to take a long weekend and go camping!
Talk about fun...

In total there were 7 adults, 6 kids and 4 dogs...all in one campsite.
One gorgeous, riverside campsite in the Carson National Forest.
There was a lot of hanging out fireside (thanks to Russ for keeping the fire going nearly-non-stop).

LOTS of good food (we ended with FAR more than we needed).

Plentiful firewood and lots of helping hands.

Baby snuggles.

Kid snuggles.

Adventuring.

Great camaraderie.

Hiking.

Dirt sliding.

Imagining.

Roasting.

Puppy-dog playing.

Rock skipping.

Stream crossing.

Sunshine soaking.

Swimming (intentionally or not).

Meandering.

Tickling.

Snoozing.

Burning.

Puppy mediating (some pups got along better than others).

Hangin'.

Napping.

Exploring.

Fishing.

Puppy loving.


 (I had to get two of Emmit (sp?) because I couldn't resist his exhausted-self)


(You can't see it very well here, but yes, we took Brin camping with that damned Cone of Shame...it actually worked fairly well in alerting us to where he was located as he crashed through all of the brush and trees like a mad man!)

Giggling.

"Animal shelter" playing.

Releasing.

Swinging!

More snuggling.

Flower picking.

Flower eating.
("Okay, now take a picture of me pretending to eat it!")

Dinner prepping.
Joe (on the right) caught all 4 of these!

Puppy spoiling.

Midnight goofing.

Exhausted, ready for home.


We had so much fun, we are really looking forward to doing it all over again!
