The second week in July we went cabin camping
with my parents up in Christopher Creek.
It was so beautiful and the weather was amazing!
I had refrained from telling Maddison that we were
going and then 3 weeks before my mom accidentally
told her, everyday until we left I was asked
"Are we going camping today!?!?" LOL
|The cabin we stayed in.|
My parents cabin was right next to ours.
|Christopher Creek that was right behind the cabins.|
|The cabins had a playground with swings, see saw and|
a play house.
|It was our first roadtrip in our pretty new car :)|
|My mom took Maddie in the creek a few times.|
Reagan hated it...because there was water.
Unless it's a bath she wants NOTHING
to do with water.
|Maddison was so excited to fish.|
We bought her a princess fishing pole...
but it broke before she even got to use it.
|Fishing with Grammy|
|One of the days we took a drive up to the fish hatchery.|
They allowed you to feed the fish that were about ready to
be released. This is Reagan demanding more
of the food to feed the fish.
|Maddison didn't catch anything fishing at the lake so we|
found this "catch a trout" spot that you are almost guarunteed
to catch a fish.
|I would like to put in in writting that I caught THREE fish and |
Matt caught ONE. LOL I also caught the biggest one!
Reagan was a little concerned about the fish, but Maddison
was so excited.
|Maddison wanted to hold the fish and after a few|
failed attempts Matt held it for her and she pet it.
I dont think Maddison quite understood the concept
of fishing. I think she thought you fished to catch them
for pets. She did NOT want to eat them.
Later when I asked why she didn't want to try the fish
she teared up and said "I don't want to eat them because
I love the fish". I felt so bad :(
I better not tell her where chicken/beef/turkey comes from!
We had such a good time up there.
I think we might try and go back next summer.
Every few days Maddison askes me if we're going camping again.
Maybe when they're a little older we will try REAL camping.
