Guys Campout!

Yesterday I posted about the Girls trip to Pipestem. Today, I'm posting about the Guys and kids (ages 3+) Campout. Poppy, Uncle Bill, Andy & Wilson, Danny, Meghan & Lily, James & Ethan, and David (Katie's BRAVE boyfriend ) went backpacking along the Williams River in WV. The hiked in 2 1/2 miles from the cars to a beautiful campsite. Here are a couple of views where they were staying. The kids ages 9, 5, almost 4 and 3 1/2 did really well on the trip. There were a few complaints about the thunderstorms and hiking in the rain but you can't really blame them! At the campout they ate lots of food, roasted marshmallows, had a beautiful campfire, swam in the cold river and had lots of fun! Here is Wilson, ready for bed and excited to be sleeping in a tent with his daddy, Lottie and in a new sleeping bag! Say cheese!

The boys also did a little fishing on the trip. Didn't catch any fish though! This is Wilson's first time to fish.

Hiking with Ethan! Wilson's little legs did get tired!

Wilson and Poppy found some great walking sticks!

Here's the whole gang! Wilson, Andy, Poppy, Danny, Lily, Meghan, David, Ethan, James. (Uncle Bill took the picture!)

Here is Wilson on the drive home from WV after the camping trip. I think the hiking and camping wore him out just a bit...don't you?!
