Caroline, the camper

Our weekend camping trip with Caroline was a success. She played with her cousin Savannah, learned how to eat corn on the cob, and slept great for three nights in her pack 'n play in her very own tent. One night it got down to 55 degrees! Between the two families we had 6 tents - 4 for sleeping, 1 for gear and 1 for the kids to play.

The campground had a terrific playground, and we visited a farm with chickens, turkeys, guineas and goats running every which way. Caroline never actually touched the water, but she loved to say "Hiwassee."

The grown-ups tag-teamed the rivers: Tara and I paddled the Hiwassee two days, while Spence headed to the more lively Ocoee. Uncle Todd led all the girls on a 12-mile bike ride and skipped the rivers to run 8 miles.

The picture below of Caroline in a life jacket is actually after we got home when we took her wading in Roaring River. She insisted on eating her pudding in an "I do it" fashion.

It was a fun weekend. We look forward to doing it again.

I am so glad you had fun and that Caroline did so well. It gives me hope that we will some day camp again! Cute pictures too.
