Weekend at the cabin

We spent another fun weekend with Grandpa Scott at his cabin in Alpine. We invited our nephew Urban to come along with us this time. He and Scotty are only 3 months apart in age and are good buddies. They had a great time. We went to Murphy Lake (that's right, Murphy Lake- I looked it up!) and hiked around. Then we went camping. Well...Grant and Mommy did the fun camping stuff- hanging around the campfire, watching the boys play in the dirt, roasting hot dogs and marshmallows, but when it was getting late Grandpa kindly took the two of us back to the cabin to sleep in our nice, warm beds! The other guys stayed and camped overnight. Scotty and Urban loved it and Scotty can't wait to go camping again! It was nice to have a playmate for Scotty. Mommy got a break from playing with the fire truck and Barbie airplane!

Here they are pretending to drive - so cute!

Now here they are all tuckered out from the driving!

Throwing rocks at Murphy Lake.

Wading in the lake. It was cold but there was very little complaining!

Getting ready to cross the little creek on a wibbly, wobbly little log! This was quite an adventurous hike!

Everyone did really good crossing the log. I'm a scaredy pants and needed just as much help as the kids!

They loved sitting there roasting the hot dogs, but neither one would eat them!

Grant got his first taste of licorice - what do you think he thought of it?!
