Church Campout

We went on the church camp out this weekend. There were good times and there were bad. For the most part we had a good time. The night before we left we were talking about sleeping in a tent, and Jacob asked how we were going to watch cartoons? So daddy had to explain to him that there were no cartoons/TV at the campsite. Then The day of the camp out Hailey came and got in bed with us and said "mommy are we going camping today?" and I told her "yes" and she said "oh good, cause I told Ben we were going"

We are on the Activities committee so we were in charge of helping our friend Sarah who was in charge with what ever she needed. So poor Ryan ended up working his tail off while I mostly sat with the kids. But it all came together and the BBQ and talent show were great.

Ben decided to start cutting his first tooth on Friday so he was grouchy. So between people running past or tent until midnight, Ben crying every hour, and the 5 o'clock fishermen talking as loud as they could Ryan and I didn't get much sleep. Hailey of course slept through all of this but when at one point I woke up and Jacob was in Ben's play pen with him and they were playing with the toys so I rolled over and went back to sleep. I woke up to the tent zipper, and I thought oh no Jacobs going out so I looked up and Jacob was coming back in the tent, and I realized oh my gosh he was outside all by himself, and then I realized he was not only outside alone for who knows how long, but he had also let the dog out so I had to go outside in my PJ's to find the dog.

But after that it was smooth sailing. We hung out around the tents and visited the guys played some horseshoes. Poor big Ben I kept him locked up in Baby jail. I let him down on the grass a couple of times but he only wanted to eat the sticks on the ground.
Ben O.& katie Christensen both Bititng the play pen. I'm not sure if they were trying to chew Ben to freedom or if it just tasted good, but either way I thought it was cute

The big kids played in the iceeee cold lake both days they just loved it. They kept trying to get me to come in with them but it was to cold for me. Ryan did get in with them while Ben & I took a nap.

We didn't take our boat but the Evangelesta's did so the big kids and I hitched a ride while Daddy and Big Ben stayed back at camp. I'm not sure if they had more fun playing in the mud or on the boat. My camera died at this point so no more pictures

Addyson Evangelesta, Jacob & Hailey Owens playing in the mud
Ryan E. & Jacob O. they were so funny. this wasn't even attatched to a boat. They would take turns climbing in and pushing each other out into the lake, then they would pull it back in and go again.
