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

Almost there

we set up while the kids played, I think they are all wet by this point

Campfire fun

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

Sticky face
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.
