Tall Pines Camping Trip 2012

Last week, maybe 2 weeks ago by the time I get this posted, a group of us (us, my cousin, Aimee & her family, and my cousin/friend Kelly and her family) headed down to Tall Pines in Virginia for our first camping trip of the season. Last year when we went we had really yucky, rainy weather the first day which left the rest of the days kind of muddy.  This year, however, no rain showed up and we had gorgeous weather.

I was worried about how Emma would do and she was quite the little diva demanding walks constantly.  She would climb in her stroller or the wagon and yell, "Walk".  I think if we had never showed her the playground, she wouldn't have minded staying at the campsite, but once she knew the playground was there and it wasn't far away, she wanted to be there all the time.

Aiden had a great time playing with his cousins/friends.  They pretty much hopped from camper to camper playing inside but did enjoy the playground and riding their bikes.  They also loved to throw things in the fire and watch it burn.  Little pyros just like their parents! :-)

I had a great time relaxing, hanging out around the fire, and eating. :-) Hey, that's what you're supposed to do when camping.  I didn't really do much but by the time we got home, I was exhausted.  Actually, I'm still exhausted and it's been almost a week since we've gotten home (when I'm writing this anyway). I'm not a huge drinker, but it's definitely going to be a long camping season being pregnant!! :-)

Here are some pictures from our weekend:
