Last year was the first year that all of us cousins showed up with our own kids so we decided to go to Jellystone Park this year since it has a lot of activities for kids. This was Marshall's 3rd year camping so we were all pretty excited to go. The only sucky part was that Freddy had his Annual Training with the Guard during this week so he missed out on all the fun :(
All packed up and ready to go!
And the trek has started. And don't worry... this was taken before we left. Marsh was secured in his car seat before we actually pulled out :)
After 2 1/2 hours, and a few wrong turns by Grandma we finally made it!
We also went swimming. They had a little 1 foot deep kiddie pool that was perfect for Marshall. He LOVES being in the water. Did I mention he loves being in the water???
And, of course, the day ended with a cozy campfire.
On day 3, we actually did something that I've never done before. We went on a dune buggy tour. The campground is near the Silver Lake Sand Dunes, which are between Silver Lake and Lake Michigan. So we all decided to hit up one of the dune buggy tours. To be honest, I almost didn't go, but then thought, when will Marsh have the chance to do this again so we tagged along! The wait was around 45 minutes and every time they called out the last names of the parties to board the dune buggy, Marshall would yell "What about Marshall??" Since we put the reservation under my brother's last name, which is Marshall, when they did finally call it out, Marsh got so excited because they called him to his dune buggy :)
As we were going over the dunes, Marshall kept raising his hands up like he was on a roller coaster ride. I see visits to Cedar Point in our future!
And this was our failed attempt at getting a decent picture of the two of us sitting by the campfire :)
And the ride home seemed to take forever, but we finally made it. Marshall helped Grandma back the truck and camper into the driveway.
I mentioned this was Marshall's 3rd camping trip with the Sargent family. Look for some posts for Flashback Friday on both trips as they were fairly eventful :)
