Camping Pics

As promised, here are the pictures from our camping adventure: Alli is happy, no matter what the weather! She is enjoying all the attention from her Grandma!
This is me reading and scratching my head. I did a lot of reading - not much else to do while it rains! Actually, it was nice to be able to read an entire novel while on vacation. I don't have a lot of time to devote to that much reading at home.
*Seriously, this is only 1 of 2 pictures of me from the entire time! Trust me, otherwise I would have chosen a better one!

Dan's brothers Tim and Mike, sister-in-law Jennifer, and Grandpa all on the trail of a geocache. If you are not familiar with this, it is basically a scavenger hunt for the age of technology. All it takes is a GPS device and you are ready for fun! The guys did a few of them, but didn't have much to contribute to the stash, so it was mostly just for the bragging rights of being able to find one.
Elijah's favorite pastime, riding on Grandpa and Grandma's tandem recumbent bike. Grandpa does all the work and Elijah just gets to enjoy the ride!

Elijah, hiking up a considerable hill, searching for the geocache with all the big boys. I think he could live outdoors. He had an absolute blast camping and has been talking about going again since we came home!
All in all, we had a lot of fun, despite the rain. We are hoping for better weather next year, though!

What? No pictures of Dan? :) I seriously thought that first picture (of Alli & Grandma) was Elijah for a split second! :)

I agree--your kids do look alike!

The picture of Elijah hiking up the hill is adorable! And I love the chick magnet story.....all he needs is a leather jacket and he can start picking them up left and right. :-)
