Our Camping Trip

Tyler has been asking since last year, "When do we get to go back to Dillon's Beach?!" Well, he finally got his wish. We went back the last weekend of August and camped for 3 nights. He was in Heaven with the sand, the ocean, and his best friend. Oh, and don't forget the powdered donuts for breakfast, the orange Doritos, and the roasted marshmallows. I'd say from the pictures that Lucy had a pretty good time too! The kids were getting more and more brave and heading out further and further into the water. Crazy kids! They were soaking wet!This was Lucy's private Port-A-Potty
Ah, the marshmallows...
The first morning we were there the kids woke up SUPER early and wanted to go on an adventure right away. The guys were off fishing and the two other families that were there were still sleeping, so we snuck out of camp to hike up a REALLY tall set of dunes. The kids had so much energy and just ran to the top. Brooke and Jenn had to carry the little girls a bit...and we were chatting...so we took our time. Luckily Zeus was the keeper of the big kids. He would sit and rest and keep his eye on the kids and then reluctantly get up and go chase them when they got too far away. It was cute.When the guys came home from fishing empty handed we asked them to take us to Bodega Bay for some fish 'n chips and clam chowder. So, we drove into town and took a little break from camping. We ate our food and bought some taffy from the Kite & Candy store. It was a nice break, and since we'd only been camping for one day we didn't look too, too scary.

Our tent was the party tent. The kids were playing with the Leapster, the walkie talkies, and the DVD player. My how camping has changed...We would take daily bike rides down to the marina to scope out seals. We saw one! I didn't get a picture of this, but we were sitting on the beach and one swam right in front of us not too far off shore. It was neat...but I was praying that he kept swimming and didn't venture towards shore!
