Camping at Clifty Falls

Last weekend Brett was supposed to reserve us a place at Clifty Falls State Park here in Indiana. Well when the receipt came through it was for this weekend:) That is why we did a mock camp out last Friday--we couldn't disappoint the kiddos. But it was worth the wait. We had a great time camping with the family this weekend.
Nice grassy campsites with nice plumbed bathrooms. My kind of camping.

Aly kept saying "This is my first time camping FOR REAL!!!"

There was a park directly across the street from our campsite. It was perfect!!

We took the kids on a short hike on Friday night.

After a rough night sleep-we were ready to go again.

The kids pretended they brought their own "electricities" (electronics) and kept taking pretend pictures of everything.

We found this really cool and really long tunnel. The kids lasted about 100 steps before they were freaking out.

We climbed these stairs toward the end of an already long hike so you can imagine how tired the kids were. Tobe was in tears toward the end, Aly was on Brett's shoulders, and Tobe kept saying "I Hate This Hike!!" but by the time it was over--he loved it!!

We crossed the Ohio river and stepped into Kentucky. The kids just wanted to say they've been to Kentucky!!

And that's the end of our camping trip.
Peace Out!!!

What a fun trip!! Our annual camping trip this year was little different for us too. It has got to be so much more fun to camp with a little older children. Someday... :)

I love seeing Aly's personality in those pictures! She's just so big! Jacob cried at the end of hiking the Y a few years back when Dan wouldn't carry him, and then twenty minutes later when we drove through Pleasant Grove asked if we could go hike the "G" :) They do get over it quickly! Miss you guys!
