Fall campout 2013!

Let the fall festivities continue! This past weekend consisted of a (very chilly) campout extravaganza. As she’s proven before, Lucy handles extreme temps way better than her mama. I was so worried about the temps that were forecast to be in the upper 30s at night, I made a quick trip to REI at 8:30 PM the night before we left! And that’s where I found this gem:

A pink marshmallow suit stuffed with down with a full hood and cuffs for fully tucking in hands and feet? Yes, please! Oh, and did I mention it was on clearance?? It was a tiny miracle. Here are a few more pics, some including Lu’s buddy Everett, sporting his own flannel/fleece/knit multi-layered ensemble. No doubt about it, these kiddos stayed nice and toasty!

We really had a lovely time, and major bonus points to Amy and Nate for (1) getting this camping weekend going and (2) getting a campsite super close to the playground! Lucy described it as her “new favorite.”

She also enjoyed giving lots of snuggles to Everett. And who can blame her? He is one cute kid!

Such a big girl! She enjoys having her own camp chair now, even if it’s next to impossible to get her to sit still in it for more than 5 minutes. 🙂

And of course, no campout is complete without a good ol’ s’more, particularly when the friends you’re camping with (who have their own awesome outdoorsy blog here) know what they’re doing when it comes to s’more making! A little Gherardelli dark chocolate raspberry and marshmallow? Umm, ok. Lucy was in dessert heaven.

Here are a few more candid shots from the weekend. If you’re a camping/outdoorsy family, take it from Everett and Lucy: start young. 🙂
