Jeremy, Evan, and I went camping this past weekend. It wasn't the warmest weather, but we didn't care because most of the time we were snug inside a cabin. Our local Parent-2-Parent group was able to reserve a weekend at Camp Prime Time. This is a non-profit camp for children with serious illness or disabilities and their families. We had a great time talking with other parents, going on a pontoon boat ride (Evan's first boat ride ever!), hiking, collecting pine cones and twigs (supplies for a project I have in mind for his "rustic" room), sitting around the campfire--all the usual "campy" things. Evan thoroughly enjoyed the extra attention he received from his two new friends, Sarah and Rachel. Thank you to the wonderful volunteers who fed us this weekend and work hard to keep the camp running all year long. The only bad thing about the whole weekend was that we didn't get much sleep (Evan kept setting his alarm off multiple times through both nights--we aren't sure why, he does have some extra secretions, but doesn't seem to be sick really).
Here are a few of my favorite pictures from this weekend:
Look mommy--one hand!
What's going on out there?
Not sure I'm feeling up for a hike with all these extra clothes on.
Evan's first ride on a boat (a pontoon boat, even!)
View of Clear Lake. The snow up on the moutain in the distance was fresh fall from the night before. Luckily, we only got rain.
Jeremy, and our new friend Sarah, ready for a great ping-pong volley.
Rachel loved pushing Evan around in his stroller...maybe even as much as Evan likes being pushed.
Where to now?
Rachel, Evan, and Sarah (this was a lucky shot, as none of these guys sit still for long!)
Sarah rocking Evan (anytime the hat, hat, hat sign comes out, it's gotta be good)
Evan, Jeremy, Sarah and Anita (Sarah's mom). Roasting--or is it burning?!--marshmallows for smores
