Oxbow Regional Park

We got back from our camping trip this morning. What a fun two nights it was! Both girls were very sad to leave, which is the mark of a fun outing. I think they loved the sense of independence and freedom they had the time we were there. Not to mention all the friends. It ended up being Amy with her girls: Hailey, Emma and Olivia; Emily with her boys: William, Christopher and Jamie; Natalie with her kids: Chloe and Taylor (twins) and Koby who is only 11 months younger than his twin sisters and of course me with Maddie and Izzie. 

 Maddie and Izzie checking out the tent pad.

 Izzie with smoke in her eyes, Taylor, Chloe and Koby making hotdog and marshmallows around the campfire.

 Maddie and Christopher roasting marshmallows.

 Natalie couldn't find the plug for  her air mattress. She put a pine cone in it at first, that didn't work, so she tried a marshmallow. The marshmallow lasted two nights! Good thinking! LOL.

 Hailey, Maddie and Izzie exploring.

 A deer came to visit us in the morning. I think she was pregnant.

 Moms and babes.

 All the kids. Olivia, Hailey, Emma, Taylor, Izzie, Chloe, Maddie, William, Christopher, Jamie and Koby!

 Izzie, caught her with her mouth full of food. Oops. But this girl was off playing so much I hardly caught her on film.

 Our campsite, right after the downpour.

 Fire.

BRRR. Izzie wrapped up in a pink blanket. I had the blankets folded over in half on top of them. It was chilly. I definitely need to invest in sleeping bags!

Such good times. I almost didn't go, but I'm so glad I did. I think the girls were glad too. They both really hit it off with Chloe and said she was their best friend. Taylor is very shy but she played with them too. Great times in Oregon...
