First Camping Trip of the Season

Story told by: Brody

We don’t have a lot of camping trips planned for this year due to many things being closed, but we were recently able to meet some friends for a great weekend at Farragut State Park in Idaho.

We have known the Davis and Grunenfelder families since they lived in Pullman many years ago, and have been able to meet them for most summers to go camping! This is Mommy with Chelsea and Molly.

We were the last ones to arrive due to our swim lessons, but we jumped right in to playing with our friends.

Sitting around the campfire.

Time for s’mores! My favorite part of camping!

The next morning we woke up to the best camping breakfast!

Mommy and Daddy ate Red Vines while waiting for their coffee to brew and while whisper-yelling at us to not wake up the entire campground.

Daddy also made yummy bacon and eggs!

After breakfast, the fun started again.

Lainey made each of us our own bike parking spot.

We found an open field for the adults to play Kubb while we climbed on giant rocks.

The girls!

The guys technically won two of the three games of Kubb.

But due to their hard-fought third game victory, the ladies are declaring themselves the ultimate winners.

We headed back for lunch, only for me to discover that my mom had brought Dawn dish soap on the trip. Unbeknownst to my parents, I’d recently seen a commercial for this soap and I was SO excited they brought this!

After lunch we headed down to the swim area.

It wasn’t warm, but we still had a blast.

Lainey went out with Emma on the paddle board.

After we decided we were freezing, we headed back to camp.

We had s’mores in between Snickerdoodle cookies. Delicious!

We also built a secret fort area.

The adults roasting their s’mores after we ran in and out for our own s’mores like a herd of elephants.

We ended the night with flashlight tag!

The next morning was spent sitting around the campfire and eating breakfast.

Mommy got to sit around the fire for two cups of coffee, and she loved it so much. After this everyone started packing up and hit the road. We had such a great weekend!
