Other than that, though, it was fun. Paul's company has some property on a beautiful lake that the employees can camp at for free. So our campsite was right on the lake, with a view of Mt. Rainier. The girls really enjoyed feeding the ducks and building/sitting around a campfire. They got their first taste of s'mores, which they weren't too keen on (although they love all 3 ingredients individually). They enjoyed sleeping in the tent but they were afraid to go to bed without us so they ended up staying up way too late which made for some super cranky kids on Saturday, but Kayley took a nap so she was better that evening but they stayed up really late again Saturday night and then we woke up to rain early Sunday morning. We put them in the car still in their pjs with Nemo on the DVD player while we quickly packed up and took off. We were out of there by 8:30 which is amazing considering we can barely leave the house before 11:00 on most mornings when we're not tearing down tents and loading all kinds of camping equipment into the SUV.
All in all, it went fairly well but it might be a few years before we try it again...
