We are back from our camping trip. We had a great time and saw some beautiful parts of the world. We went camping with three of my brothers and my sister and it was great to visit with them all. We did have to deal with some cold and rainy weather but we managed all right. While camping we tend to spend a lot of our time around the campfire cooking our meals and enjoying sitting outside so we don't get a very early start and most of our evenings our spent around the campfire. We spent even more of our time around the campfire this trip as it was so cold we wanted to be by the fire to stay warm. I'll give you a quick day by day of what we did as much for my records as for your reading enjoyment (or boredom?).
Day 1: July 10, 2010. We left at 7:30 in the morning for the 9 hour drive to Banff. The kids were all very good on the drive. We do have a DVD player in our van so the girls watched a couple of movies, but we did spend a lot of time talking, they read some books, and they did some drawing and colouring as well. We had to stop a couple of times for me to nurse my son and we tried to stop at a park or somewhere where the girls could get out and run around while I fed him. Then we let him stretch out a little bit too before packing ourselves back in the van to continue the trip. We were very happy when we finally arrived at our campsite at about 6:00 PM that night.
