It is sad. Blurb (the company I use to print our family photo books each year) discontinued their feature to take posts from blogger and put them into a book. I just have no motivation to post anymore. I did it before because it kept me organized for the book, but now it is just easier to put it straight into the book. I know my family and some friends like to see photos here...maybe I'll post some now and then. We will see.

I am trying to wrap up the years pictures and get everything ready for printing in our annual blog book. As I was going through pictures I found a few I hadn't posted from this past summer. So...here is a little taste of summer in the dead of winter :)
I love camping. I grew up camping with my family and have so many great memories. Jackson and I bought a tent shortly after getting married and had grand plans to use it a lot. Then I got pregnant and started having babies. Suddenly camping didn't sound very fun anymore. My babies didn't nap well anywhere but their cribs and putting them in a tent sounded like misery to me. We did a bit of "cabin camping" and really enjoyed that, but hadn't done any real tent camping. I decided my kids were all finally old enough for it to be an enjoyable experience for everyone, so we were going to give it a shot. My brave sister agreed to join us and we met at a campground in between our houses. It was a complete success! A whole lot of work and very exhausting, but definitely a success. Hooray for camping!
