"Kelly" Camping 2009

We had our annual Syferd camping trip last weekend. Because of Ryan's graduation, Ethan and Greg headed up Thursday and Ryan and I drove out Friday morning. The boys loved the beach and the little wading pool. Ethan loved cooking with daddy and looking for firewood. Ryan wasn't as excited about that but he did love to walk up and down the steps to our cabin and look for rocks.

And you might be asking why it's called "Kelly" camping. Well, I am not a big fan of nature or sleeping on the ground. I am also not a fan of critters in the middle of the night coming up and stealing all of our food. So we compromise. We get a cabin where I can have a bed and running water (ie. shower & FLUSH toilet) and Greg gets the big fire pit where he can cook all of our meals. See, it's a win win for me! Greg is so awesome camping too. He does everything, including the dishes! It's a little vacation for me.

Here are some pics:

Taking aim. Greg took him the naturalist center for an archery class. He loved it and was really good at it!


Ethan driving the boat and my new favorite picture of him.


Ryan having his turn driving.


And one of the many, yummy things Greg made in his dutch oven.

What a great compromise! Where did you go? I, too, love cooking on a fire. I used to really camp rugged, but I think I'm out-growing it. I love me a good mattress, these days! Love the pictures - looks like you had a great time!

Kelly camping is the only way to camp IMHO. Well except for that part about Greg doing all the cooking. (Kidding)

I wondered if we'd see the hat on the blog. ;-)

I'm with Cat. Great pics!
