A couple times a year we go camping.
We like to go down to the Corpus area and camp right on the beach
It's a special time because the kids don't need anything but the sun and water
No electronics or toys, just splashing and running and digging
The first thing they did was run to the waves
Samuel mapped out the campsite
The beach wasn't too crowded that day
Clothes don't matter when you are playing with waves
Who doesn't love the ocean?
Samuel and I set up our mansion-tent, it's a 9-sleeper, we love it
Daniel had the camera
we set up while the kids played, I think they are all wet by this point
Samuel was cooking the tinfoil dinners
Using his fingers, brave guy
Our set-up, with play tent for the kids
Boys in the sunset
Eating tinfoil dinners in the tent
Where the sand couldn't get us
Smores at night
it took me a while to get the marshmallow out of her hair.
We spent the night at the beach and it went well, but when we woke up in the morning
the winds had picked up and no matter what we did, the sand was literally pouring into the tent.
So we left the beach and stayed at choke canyon and it was nice to eat without sand in every bite.
