We went camping with some friends from church this week- it was Nora's first camping trip.
It didn't look very promising when we pulled into the campground
And despite her new pink poncho- Nora wasn't too enthused about unpacking the car in the rain
But the rain cleared just as we got to our campsite
And Nora got busy picking berries "for the bear- since he might be hungry". She was so hopefully innocent that a bear would come to visit us on this trip
Having a snack while we waited for our friends to get to the campsite. She has the berries saved for the bear in the little cup holder
The campsite was a child's paradise. Lots of space for running-
(you can see she doesn't always land on her feet)
Resting by the tent
And the best part- the climbing rocks. Nora has an older friend- Grace- who is holding her hand here- she is so sweet, maternal and caring of Nora. I looked up at one point and she had Nora under the arms and was trying to lift her up onto a large rock.
"I'm a scarecrow"
Grace and Ashley being scarecrows with Nora
Erik had lots of help starting the fire
Rowan and Nora were excited to cook dinner
Nora's first taste of a s'more
As expected- she liked it.
