Happy Camper

rockin' the headlamp
A group of our friends had been working to orchestrate a night up tot he mountains to camp. I then realized I hadn't been camping since prior to being pregnant, and it used to be something we did fairly regularly. So, for father's day weekend we decided to do what most people would deem CRAZY and took little man camping (per dad's request) for 2 nights.  Hey, good thing we're crazy though... because he did awesome! Quite the little camper we have on our hands.

I originally thought we'd just do Friday night and be more than ready to return, but John really wanted to do 2 nights. In his defense it takes a lot of work to get all the stuff packed up, drive up to camp site, set up camp, etc for just one night, but I was worried it might be too much. Au contraire...
Night one: Hanging out in a chair all on his own like a big boy! 
 
Babydoll just fell asleep in my arms around the campfire & slept like a trooper in the tent in between John and I! 
Camping proves to be a GREAT opportunity to eat some dirt.

Man makes fire!

So on Saturday afternoon we "cheated" a little bit and drove into Frisco (we were camping right near there). They were hosting the BBQ Challenge and we stopped in to check it out. Also convenient John's boss has a house in Frisco so we were able to stop in to say "hello" and have a beer with him. Oh, and wash our hands with REAL RUNNING water! It's the little things...

Frisco BBQ Challenge = Crowded + Hot

Highlight of Ian's trip to the BBQ Challenge was the corn.
He damn near ate the cob after polishing off all the kernels. 

Night 2: Hanging out and preparing ba-ba's

Ian's most favorite part of camping.... the food. Our friends don't exactly rough it when camping...there is a spread around the campfire and Ian grazed and grazed, and probably said no less than 100x "I unt cheeese."

Another one of Ian's favorite things about camping.... DOG! DOG!

Happy Father's Day Dada! It was a great weekend. We might have a new tradition....
