Not For Us

The past couple months I have been trying to convince Andrew that taking a long trip in an RV would be an awesome vacation.

I was so sure that we would love roughing it and making memories on the open road.

That was before I attempted to sleep in a RV with a 4 year old and an 18 month old.

I spent bedtime, and numerous hours after, playing Musical Beds with Josie and begging Gabriel to lay down and go to sleep.

The kids did finally fall asleep around midnight and were my bright eyed alarm clock when the sun rose.

Needless to say, I don't see RVing in our immediate future.

The sleepless night was well worth it though. 
It was a small price to pay to spend two days with my awesome Grandparents!

These are my Dad's parents and I only get to see them once a year.

It was thier first time meeting Baby Gabe and, as I should have expected, they were both smitten.

Especially my Grandpa.

Gabe sat with him pretty much the entire night and then spent the next morning playing with him. 

It was adorable.

We had a fish fry for dinner that was out of this world and then hung out by the fire until my kids just couldn't take any more excitment.

The next morning we hung out at thier house, then hit all our old stomping grounds.

It was so fun to go around with my brother and retell stories from all the weekends we spent up at the lake.

 Thanks for a great visit Grandpa and Grandma!  Can't wait to see you in Florida!

The time the kid's spend with their grandparents is precious! My funnest and sweetest memories from my childhood almost all involve my grandparents.

Camping is one of my favorite things to do. We have a 1 year old and a 12 year old & we are avid campers. I must admit though, it is a bit tougher now that we have the 1 year old. Looks like you had a great time. Loved all the pictures :)
