Camping weekend !

Its about time we take some time for camping!!! Im embarrassed to say this is the only time this year we have been able to pitch a tent and enjoy ourselves. Gracy was hilarious, its her first official all nighter, sleeping in a tent building fires, fishing, the whole nine yards. We layed in that tent forEVER trying to get her excitement level down so we could all sleep. She just wanted to give kisses every second, clapping her hands and her favorite thing was her very own polka-dot sleeping bag, best 10 bucks ive ever spent!!!! She snuggled up to her dad and finally fell asleep. What a little trooper she is. We didnt have time or the equipment to make a descent dogs were good enough for us :)
Notice how danny has one in each hand.

We went up to S.Ashley creek up towards Brownie ..... surprisingly we only saw a few campers. It was nice to have the mountain to ourselves.

This is the clearest shot I could get of all three of them, I wish I got a video of them all playing and wrestling, Those three have so much fun together. good ol' frank is fitting in just fine :)

We went on a hike before we left, I FORGOT to bring the camera but it was my favorite part of the whole trip. Gracy rode on danny's shoulders and I had the pack. She was so tired from going to bed so late and getting up at the crack of dawn. Anyway, We were walking down the trail and danny tells me to stop and he gets the 22 pistol out of the pack and says......"Nick check this out" and shoots this squirrel out of the tree in one shot lol. Nacho is obsessed with anything that is rodent like and has been trying to catch one since we got up to the mountains, so she of course immediately thinks she has killed this square ll and shakes the rest of the life out of the poor thing. Frankie just kinda followed along and copy cats whatever Nach does....Gracy had her hand over her mouth in bewilderment and kept saying "oh man" ...... It was one of those moments that "you had to be there" but I will never forget it. Gracy got her pants changed right on the trail and was so cooperative. She is getting so big and much more easy. I LOVE the new stages she is in!!!!

We like to refer to the dogs as......."The Nino's" They are getting to be good buddies now. P.S. I have officially and successfully potty trained Frankie! I know im so proud of myself :) What a smart little bugger. Now if I could just get my 2 year old to give it a go I think we would be doing better :)

I think we consumed more hot dogs than we should have this trip, Gracy out ate me by like 3 hot dogs.....

this little red chair has been so fun for Gracy, She loves it!!!!

Wish we could go more often, we love the mountains.....unfortunatley we have been so busy with Danny's new job, keeping up with the Business, and getting our yard put in and then fixing up the house we barley have time for it. We dreaming of the day when we can have a bigger house and that nice camp trailer we've had our eye on :) Its good to have goals right? Anyway aside of our "goals" we are enjoying ourselves in the midst of the rescent chaos. Danny is headed to Texas for work all week and Gracy is getting Tubes in her ears on Tuesday (Thank goodness).

OH don't you just love the mountains and to camp we have done that ALOT and it has been so much fun and relaxing, and the boys love it. And i am so sorry about the thrush she has had both of my boys got it when they were newborns and it is a stinker to get rid of and to deal with. Hope she gets feeling better soon and my boys get ear infections too YUK!!

I miss the mountains!!! It looks like fun, wish we could have come with you guys! Bailey and Gracy would have had so much fun chasing each other around. :) Glad you had a good time! I don't think Gracy could be any cuter. I miss her so much!!! Can't wait to see you guys soon! How is the yard coming along? You'll have to post some pix!
