The kids love to help! Isaac was sleeping in the van while we were getting set up. He woke up in a really grouchy mood and just crying/screaming. I finally figured out (with no help from a crying, incoherant boy) that he pottied his pants, and once he was changed he was happy.
Sitting around the campfire goofing off. Isaac hasn't really figured out the whole bunny ears thing...
The next morning Keith cooked breakfast while I lounged in bed...between Finley, who slept in our bed, repeatedly startling herself (and us) awake and then crying for a couple of minutes, and being joined in the night in our bed by Sareny, I didn't get much sleep. I did enjoy the nice lulling sounds of the nearby river though, it was very soothing. In exchange for breakfast in bed, I had to clean the dutch oven.
I'm sure you noted from the above picture how close our site was to the bathroom, which was both a good and bad thing. When Isaac has to go, he has to go, and there is no messing around. Or there will be a mess around. haha. So it was handy for that reason. Unfortunately, we occasionally caught a whiff from the bathrooms (which were the non-flush kind), which was not handy.
After breakfast we walked around the camp area a bit.
Isaac was sitting down, and Fin came up from behind and hugged him, and it was just adorable.
We walked over to the river. This was a little tributary.
These trees were blooming and were so beautiful. Kind of reminds me of "White Way Delight," from Anne of Green Gables.
In front of the large river.
For the drive back to Phoenix, we decided to take the extremely scenic route. We saw some snow on the side of the road, and decided to stop.
We also stopped to see Roosevelt Dam and this cool bridge.
Same bridge, from the other side.
This is right by the dam.
And this one is from the bottom of the dam. The kids were excited to see a rainbow in the spray where the water came out.
