We were so excited that Dave offered us his pop up camper to use while we were visiting to go camping. Trav has wanted to take Lex camping for forever but we weren't really sure about the rules in Germany so we never went. Although we weren't "roughing it" enough for Travis it was so nice to have beds and a heater and we all really enjoyed some time in the wilderness!! Alexis proved to be a little bit of a princess (Trav asked her to help pick up firewood and she responded with, "but it's going to get me all DIRTY!") but by the end she was with Ryan in the dirt literally pouring it on themselves. We plan on many camping trips in the near future.

At the lake. There was a man fishing and he caught one right when we were walking up and then offered to let Lex hold it. She, of course, got a kick out of that.

These are out of order but this was at the end were Lexi decided the dirt was kind of fun.
Ryan knew it all along.

Ready for bed. Nice and warm (thanks to Aunt Tori since we didn't bring ANY warm clothes!)
Hanging out by the fire.

Eating marsh mellows. Both girls preferred the non-roasted ones!

YUM banana boats!

Helping gather firewood!

They got a kick out of riding in the front seat for the 12 feet Trav drove to find more wood! :)

I want to go camping bad it is snowing here. It might be a little bit too cold to go. Love the pics. I am sure enjoying all your blogging lately.
