We went camping a few nights ago, and it was really nice. The spot I have always gone to with friends we were unable to get to because of a rock slide. So on the way out of the mountains, I spotted this 4 wheeling path. I got out and checked it out to see if it was drivable. If I still had the Wrangler I would of done it and even though I have four wheel drive it still kind of made me nervous. I really did not want to get stuck in the mud and then sit there with no cell phone service. So I walked the path and found as awesome campsite right on the river. So we hiked all our stuff in and set up camp. The kids did awesome. If possible they got dirtier this time than a few weeks ago. Unfortionatly the people before us had been pretty inconsiderate and had broken bottles and left cigerette butts everywhere. So I had a fun time cleaning up because Bug still insists on putting everything in her mouth.
Bear got to learn how to pee in the bushes. And loved it so much that when we got home he asked if he could just pee in the bushes instead of the toilet.
We went to the pool last night and the kids had so much fun. Bug had no fear at all. She just wandered off without me. She would fall in over her head, I would help her up and she could continue on. She kept bending over to put her face in the water and would come up laughing and she loved jumping off the side of the pool. Maybe I will put her in a swimming class. Bear had fun and was quite disgrunttled when I told him they were closing the little pool and we had to go. When I pointed out that his sister was blue and his fingers looked like raisens, he complied a little bit. Now that we are home for a while, he is starting lessons on Monday. He is pretty excited about it too.
Bug now gives kisses. I ask for a kiss and she puts her face on mine and says, "mooooo-waaaaah!" And thankfully she is starting to mind directions. I mean it is real simple things, like go get me a baby doll, or lets clean up the toys or go put this back where you found it. But it is making life a little easier. She still has selective hearing and will just keep walking if she sees something she wants, but hey- a little at a time right?
