where the wild things are...

a couple of weeks ago...we made a very quick trip to northern arkansas for our very first family camping outing! i use the term "camping" very loosely...because we only stayed for the day...but we did the whole deal (well, minus the tent) and had such a fun time with the tucker family!!!!

the heads of our households (aka: the daddies) have been going to the richland creek wilderness area for about 10 years now and they finally decided to let their family in on the little gem! it was absolutely gorgeous up there...waterfalls, rope swings, creeks, peace and quiet...it was all wonderful!

we set up "camp" and grilled hamburgers and then let the kids swim in the little "swimming hole". it all felt like a scene from a movie! they had the best timeplaying and exploring...and we only had one minor injury...from you know who! poor, poor maddie boo boo! she just can't catch a break!

we stayed until dusk and then headed back home! we plan on making many more "camping memories" and i'm pretty confident that we will work our way to a full fledged camping experience...more than likely when we don't have a baby!!!!! although ava was a.m.a.z.i.n.g! she just hung out in her stroller the majority of the day and dipped her little "toesies" a couple of times for good measure! she's such a joy!

thanks guys, for allowing your families to experience your camp with you! it's nice to finally know where all the world's problems have been solved!!!
