I love when you go somewhere and all the kids insist that they are not tired. It pretty much cracks me up because the following usually happens (Seth is hit and miss as to whether he will fall asleep or not but the others are pretty much always the same!)
Lexi definitely looks like a kid who wasn't tired!
So we headed up northeast of Payson to go camping for the 4th of July. We met up w/ Eliott's mom and her hubby Todd. and we had a fantastic time. It was such a great trip. The weather was great. It even poured on us a couple times. The little random storms would last about an hour. The first one proved to us how non-leak proof our tent is. Eliott was busy having kidney stone pains in the tent when it first started pouring so Todd helped me cover the tent w/ the tarp that was used for covering the wood. It did manage to keep the water out of our tent. For which I was extremely grateful. By the time I got back in the tent after getting the tarp and helping Todd throw it over the tent, I was completely soaked!! But it was fun. The last time we went camping Eliott bought me this awesome hammock. So I took full advantage of having it there. I brought w/ me some cheesy books and laid in the hammock and read. It was fantastic and sooo relaxing! And as you can see the kids love it too.
I do have to tell the funny potty issues we had while camping! Riley decided that she could go pee outside by herself. And dog-gone it she was gonna learn how to do it. Even if it meant peeing on everything we brought. And that is exactly what it meant. She would try soooo hard but her legs are too short and she would pee on her pants or undies every single time.
And then Lyddie was absolutely terrified of peeing outside. She would freak out and not go. And then she would end up peeing her pants. Luckily Eliott's mom and Todd have a pop-up trailer w/ a toilet. So Lyddie was able to go there. I can't remember exactly how long it was but the first day she went potty at home and then didn't go again until it was late evening. She held it soooo long.
So between Riley and her desire to go by herself and Lyddie and her fear of going outside, we literally peed through every possible thing. Even the dirty clothes from the first 2 days, that Lexi kept dry. It was getting a bit ridiculous!!
But I love camping and can't wait to go again!!
