the great outdoors


last weekend, we went camping with some friends in the santa cruz mountains (the part that wasn't on fire, of course).
we had a great time with the whole group...eating, burning things (thanks for saving us from the dangers of lars and ryan, dyan), going on nice walks and just enjoying nature.
and, i'm proud to say we lived through it with 5 babies/toddlers.



i think it's safe to say leah and ty enjoyed themselves...hmm...good thing boys don't get cooties until kindergarten.

Looks like a lot of fun. We haven't been courageous enough to camp with both of the boys yet and with the heat of the summer in Texas, I don't think we will be doing it anytime soon. Leah is so cute!

You guys are awesome to survive a camping trip with so many little ones! Hey Maren, what type of baby pack do you guys have? I went to the store to look at them and the sales person had me try on the Cadillac of baby back packs. Oh, it was so nice, but I just don't know if I can justify spending that much!!!

You guys are very adventurous - these will be fun memories for the kids.
