Camping Trip

We just got back from our week long camping trip at Bethpage. We had a great time!! We kept the babies on schedule the whole week!

We would get up in the morning and feed the babies breakfast then let them play with their toys for a little bit. Then it was lunch time and nap time! After they woke up from their naps, we would head down to the pool area. The first couple days we were there, the water was so warm! We would play in the pool for a couple of hours. They also had a little kiddie pool that was 6 inches of water and we would let the babies crawl around in there for a little bit. They enjoyed that a lot! Then it was back to the camper for dinner. After dinner we would take our nightly walk around the camp ground. During the week it wasn't that busy but come Friday & Saturday it was packed!

Saturday we had our friends come and spend the day with us. They have a 10 month old that the babies treat like a sister! They all played in the pool together, then went back to the trailer and played with toys. After dinner, we headed down to the Ice Cream store! It was packed!!! Everyone had the same idea! We got our ice cream and of course, the babies know what ice cream is!! They had to have some too. We gave them some ice cream and I cut them off since it was almost time for them to go to bed! They were not happy with me!! They screamed for more!!! When we got back to the camper we fed them and put them down for bed. 

This is how we went down to the pool on Saturday! Kenly is sitting on top!

Sunday morning we packed everything up and then headed down to the pool one more time for a swim. This was the earliest that we have been to the pool all wasn't such a great idea! They were fussy the whole time because the usually take a little nap after breakfast. So we headed back to campsite to head on home. Before we even got out of the campground, they were all sleeping! I'm pretty sure the babies enjoyed their vacation! 

Now that we are home, we are planning their 1st birthday!!! They turn 1 next Friday! We are having a party at my parents house in Virginia Beach and invited all of our family and friends! Hoping that they have a very special and memorable (for us) birthday!

July 4th Weekend

We had a very busy weekend! Saturday we had a cookout at my parents house. We had Kevin's family over, my family over and family friends over. My mom and dad bought the babies a little pool so they went swimming for a little bit during the day.

Sunday we had a cookout at my sister's & Tommy's house. They have a big pool in their backyard so we went swimming! We bought the babies the swimsuits with the floatation devices built in them before we went over. The babies didnt' want to swim that much in the beginning. But it was busy they were tired, not because they didn't like the water. So we fed them and put them down for a nap. After they woke up from their nap, they went swimming again. Caitlyn had a ball!! We put her in the baby float and she was splashing and laughing. Ashton still wasn't very happy, but I'm pretty sure it was because of the sun. He did not want to keep his hat on, but when he didn't have it on, the sun was in his eyes and he couldn't see. Brittany had to warm up to the water first, then she started splashing around! It's a good thing that they love the water!!!

During the cookout on Sunday, my sister's boyfriend had a little surprise for her. He gathered all of their friends that were there and had them on the deck and while my parents were in the pool, he knelt down in front of them, grabbed my sister's hand and proposed to her!!! Of course she said Yes!!!

On Monday (July 4th) we spent the day in Hatteras with Jerry, April and their kids. They were camping since last week down there and invited us over for the day. The campground has an indoor and outdoor pool. We started off in the outdoor pool, but then again, Ashton wouldn't keep his hat on so we went into the indoor pool. We swam for a little bit, then went back to the camper to feed the babies and see if they would take a nap. We hung out at the camper for a few hours. After they ate their dinner and took a little nap, we went back down to the indoor pool. We swam for about an hour or two. We dunked the babies underwater for the first time. I was expecting a cry, but instead we got giggles!! They loved to go underwater!!! By the time the fireworks started last night, they were all asleep so they didn't get to see them!!

Overall we had a fun filled weekend!! Next trip... camping at Bethpage for 9 days!!!
