Father and Sons Part II

So I thought I'd post some pictures from the Father and Sons campout Dave and Sam went on this weekend. Unfortunately, it didn't go as well as I had hoped. Sam is just too little. He did enjoy himself when he wasn't crying and upset, Dave said. He had fun playing in the sand and with his friend, Colter, but the sleeping was rough and since he was so little daddy couldn't do much. He pretty much just chased him around the whole time. He had to watch him like a hawk, and the one time he didn't, he bonked his head pretty hard on the grill. Not only that, but there was water close by and he kept trying to get into the fire. Dave says it would have been better if I was there because he would have been able to "play" with everyone and we could watch Sam in shifts. I guess they went cliff jumping and stuff and he felt bummed because he couldn't participate. I think it's official that Dave has adopted his uncle Rick's rule that no father and sons campout until you are potty trained! Anyway, I put some pictures of it at the end of the post.

During the father and sons, some friends of mine in the ward got together at Lydia Hulse's house for a girls night (besides the fact that Roderick, Will, and Logan were there - their dad's were smart enough not to take them because they were so young!). It was way fun. Lydia and Destiny made wonderful homemade pizza and we watched the two most chick-flick movies you can watch - Always and While You Were Sleeping - classics! It was so fun not to have a commitment that night and have to worry about getting home to put Sam to bed. It was also nice to sleep in!

I just wanted to mention that Sam is the cutest! He learned something new last night that he loves to do now. I was doing the dishes and I turned around to find him twirling around in circles and then falling on the floor to make himself dizzy. He loves it! He was doing it all night last night. I don't know why he thought to do it or where he picked it up from, but it's so cute!

Well, not much else to say...enjoy the pics!

I am so glad that you included pictures of Father's and Sons, I didn't get to see any. Morgan took the camera, but didn't feel inclined to take any pictures. I loved your post. I guess Dave will just have to try again next year!!! We did have fun without them though, good times, (and good pizza)

Looks like fun! I used to love the Daddy/Daughter campouts!!
And I am jealous you had a girl's night. I could use one of those, for sure!!
