Our First Camping Trip

We decided at the spur of the moment to go camping at Palo Duro Canyon. We talked the Vests into going too. I knew it was going to be hot, so I didn't check the weather because I would have backed out. It was about 100 down in the canyon, but the creek was really full and we brought lots of drinks. The kids loved camping. They hiked and climbed the "mountain" behind our campsite. We all played in the water/mud. They loved making s'mores and eating marshmallows and chocolate bars. They didn't seem to notice how hot they were. Kids!! Ashlyn and Alyssa road bikes. I held a tarantula for a couple of seconds. Ava thought she could do what ever the big kids did. The girls slept really well (considering we slept 11 people in a pop up camper). We lined up the little kids like sardines after they were asleep. We all slept in the camper since it was way too hot to sleep in a tent. We had fun, but now we know we want a camper. Hopefully soon.
