First the boys and I took a quick trip to Menards Saturday morning and couldn't resist trying out this giant chair. We didn't buy it since it was $100 - phew!
|The little guys: Ethan, Charlie and Tyson. Seriously, how cute is this??|
|Brothers: Charlie, Jack, Jack and Logan|
The kids spent the evening riding their bikes, playing washers, and just plain running around. It was a lot of fun.

The next morning everyone pretty much just woke up and packed up the campsites. We stayed with Mark and Hayden to do a little more fishing before we headed home.
All in all the camping trip was a big success. Despite the rain (and therefore mud!!) we had a fun time. I'd definitely recommend the 'close to home' spot for a first trip with the littles. AND in addition to playing in the rain, we checked off #1 (go camping) and #27 (go fishing) from our list.
