We had a blast camping in Branson with our church family last weekend. The weather was perfect for tent sleeping at night and playing outside during the day. I packed the car Thursday and then when Monty got off work at lunch on Friday, we headed out. We got the tent set up and were ready to eat dinner before it got dark. This year we camped in an electric site which was nice, but it wsa really close to the road. I thought the cars going by at night might keep Aiden up, but he slept like a log!

Love the smile on his face! Being outside is his favorite place to be. He did sooooo good all weekend! Monty cooking our favorite camp dinner - fried potatoes and sausage!
Saturday morning we woke up to the sound of screeching tires as a car came down a hill, crossed traffic, and went off the road and into the ditch across the street from our tent. The people were okay, but they had to get someone to come tow them out of the ditch. I'm thinking next time we may try and get a site not so close to the road!

The playground at the campsite was perfect for little ones. Aiden really loved hanging out with the other kids and climbing all over the place.Saturday I went shopping with a friend while the guys took the kids to the fish hatchery and dam. Monty said Aiden loved watching the fish. They met us for lunch and then they went back to campsite for naptime. Aiden was worn out after a morning of playing hard.

Saturday night we roasted marshmallows for smores before the evening devo. Aiden was so interested in the fire and kept saying, "Hot! Hot!". He knew better than to get too close.
Sunday after church we packed up camp and headed home. Aiden was so tired that he kept laughing to himself until he fell asleep. It was too funny! We are looking forward camping again in about 2 weeks.
