We took our first camping trip of 2011 this weekend.  It was kind of spur-of-the-moment, and we almost didn't go since John had to work Friday.  Since we weren't feeling super motivated, we headed to Silverwood's RV Park (which we had never camped at before, despite frequenting the park itself).  We got there Saturday morning before Silverwood opened, got all set up, ate a quick snack, and headed to the park.  It was BEAUTIFUL.  Perfect weather, sunshine, mostly-well-behaved children.  Preston got to ride on the Tremors roller-coaster for the first time, which he was proud of, but I don't think it's very likely that he will go on it again anytime soon. We headed back to the campground for naps (which all 3 boys took!) and then went back to the park.

Slightly more chaotic, with slightly-less-well-behaved children, but still fun.  The water park was too cold for the boys (go figure!) so we didn't last long there, which actually ended up being okay since it freed up time for both the magic show & the train ride.

The night was L-O-N-G.  I really have GOT to figure out how to sleep while camping (well, at home too I guess!) since I only got about an hour of sleep, and the boys were up at about 5:30 (but we made them stay in bed until a little after 6). Overall, we had fun and we couldn't have asked for better weather...but I'm glad we only went for one night!
