where did the summer go?

Wow! Has it really been 4 months since my last post? Every year the first week in August our family spends some quality time together camping. This is the first year my 4 year old was really into it! For almost a month before we left, he would ask me on a daily basis "are we going camping after this day?" ... meaning "are we going camping tomorrow?" And every day I'd have to deliver the same message "not tomorrow, honey, but soon."

We spent time swimming, fishing and hiking at Itasca State Park. The day Daddy caught a fish with Sam's $12 Zebco, Sam ran through the campground screaming "Daddy caught a shark" ... actually, it was just a small northern. It probably seemed like a "shark" in Sam's world!

Sam was just a little excited about Grandma and Grandpa's new "camping truck".

To top things off, we bought tickets to see Thomas the Tank Engine the day before we left for camping.... Talk about overload for a 4 year old!! Do you think he had a good time? Nah...
