 With all the bustling about this summer we haven't done any camping and since it is one of my favorite things to do we tried to cram all the best activities into one night.  Jill's tent, of course, was the favorite of all the kids.
 Kristin popped popcorn over the fire and even though the first batch almost ended up in flames, the second was delicious. 
There were games, of course, and a lot of time playing in the water.  For Matt's kids that meant that they actually got themselves wet, but for mine it was that they poked their toes in and then spent the rest of the time throwing rocks and getting themselves all muddy on the sidelines.

 We roasted some of those big Campfire marshmallows which turned out to be pretty nasty when they were cold and completely amazing once exposed to a little bit of heat.

 The cousins had fun and we ate a bunch of awesome food and sat around on camping chairs discussing all kinds of important topics, like who has the weirdest dreams.

Once the little jammers were all asleep the rest of us sat out and talked about scary movies which was a bad idea for someone as chicken as I am.  Luckily by the time we finally went to bed I was so tired that I didn't even have nightmares. 
It was super fun just to kick it in Smithfield Canyon.  Although we were only about 10 minutes from Matt's house it was so great to get outside and enjoy being together.
