Camping, again!

As we near the end of summer for northern Arizona, we squeezed in one more camping trip. While northern AZ was about to experience fall & winter, we folks down in Phoenix will enjoy 100 degree temps through most of October. Joy. Anyways.... Kasey's sister's family the Nish's (Sheri, Adam, Serenity), Kasey's mom Jeri, and Kasey's sister Jackie joined the three of us on this trip to the Prescott Valley area. This was the first time Serenity & Ryder camped together. Funny thing, I thought it would be EASIER to have the two camp together because they are so good at playing with each other. In hindsight, I think I was wrong! They actually fought quite a bit. In between the fights they did have fun, I will admit! Oh well, we had a great camping trip anyways.
Campfire time:
Ryder & Serenity were having "art time" which quickly turned from painting on paper to painting themselves & each other. They looked like little indians covered in war paint when it was all said and done!
The little, dirty, indians eating dinner in the tent because it started to rain on us. Luckily it was a short rain and we enjoyed rest of the night out side of the tent.Kasey & Adam tried fishing quite a bit but didn't catch a thing. The kids enjoying the lake:

Upside Breakfast

So, I wake up one morning and walk downstairs to find Ryder laying upside down on the recliner and eating his breakfast while watching cartoons. Where do kids come up with these things?!
