Brian has been wanting to take N2 camping for a couple months now. His father's day present was camping gear. We had a day set up in the summer to go camping at Starved Rock. The date arrived and we had to cancel due to the weather forecast-about a 90% chance of thunderstorms. Guess how many thunderstorms there were? ZERO. But we had canceled the site so we couldn't even go. We couldn't find another time to go this summer. Brian decided for his birthday that he wanted to go camping. His parents and siblings met us at Lake Le-Aqua-Na State Park on Saturday. We had 8 adults and 3 children under 3 on 3 camp sites.
We set up our tent and had a picnic lunch. N2 were great helpers (or at least they tried to be!). They were so excited because Grandma and Grandpa brought their big wheels! So they rode those for part of the time while we were setting up. They were hungry though so they kept coming over to me and asking to eat.
