Sunny Days

 I knew the forecast was calling for rain at some points during our recent camping trip (thankfully it only ended up raining during the night) so I decided to pack all our clothes in Ziploc bags.  I even bought some of the new XXL Ziplocs only when I got them out of the package they were bigger than I even expected! Look, my 5 year old even fits in one!

The state park where we camped has a nature center with a super cute kids' entrance.  It reminded me of a doggie door for kids!

Want to know why my husband is holding Little Girl with both arms here:

Because she was fearless around that river and some of the hiking was treacherous with steep embankments and lots of large gnarly tree roots.  We just knew she'd fall in with how over-confident she was scurrying all over the place! She complained a lot about having to hold our hand until finally she decided she needed to "help Mommy not fall in", then she happily held my hand and bossed me around for the rest of the hike!

 We took a side-trip to Sea World.  This sea lion definitely has the right idea about how to spend a sunny afternoon!


  1. How fun!!!! I'm now wondering if I could fit through the 'kiddie door'....'cause I'd sure try, that I know.

  2. Hahaha, good call mom. Thank goodness you didn't fall in with your special personal guide! That camp ground looks like a lot of fun. I can't wait for the weather to improve so we can camp again!!

    Yep, that sea lion makes me jealous!

  3. Oh, I forgot, those bags are crazy huge!! We use them too ;-)

  4. Now that's a Ziploc bag! :)

    Too funny Little Girl was OK holding your hand to make sure you didn't fall in... ;)

    That looks like a great place to go camping! Bet the hubby would even go for that since his idea of 'roughing it' is a motel. ;)

  5. Sounds like fun! Love your creativity :)
    Thanks for linking up! Have a great weekend.

  6. December is such a special month of the year - quality time with family, exchanging gifts, and sumptuous food all month long.
    You could always join a fitness related group on Facebook, though.
    t have to starve just because you think eating is making
    you obese.

  7. I have been surfing on-line greater than three hours today,
    yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It's lovely price enough for me. In my view, if all webmasters and bloggers made good content material as you probably did, the internet will probably be much more helpful than ever before.

I'd love to hear what you think!
