We spent Canada day with Yogi! Our first camping trip of the summer was a great one spent with great friends and new friends. Camping – it’s a ton of work but it’s totally worth it to get away for a few days and watch the kids have fun. It’s great that the boys are at the age they can just take off on their bikes for a while, roam and have fun on their own.
It was a wet weekend but the pouring rain was mostly not during the waking hours, so we were able to make the most of it. Thankfully Eleanor had her lovely pink umbrella!
We played quite a bit of washer toss, kids and grown ups alike. Hubby and BJ even won 2nd place in the washer toss tournament, so obviously all that practice really paid off!
Like I said, it was soggy! Thankfully we all had our rubber boots packed!
They had a great pool that even the rain couldn’t keep us away from.
The boys put water bottles in their bike tires to make their bikes sound louder. They saw one boy doing it and pretty soon all of the bikes going by had them. It was the fad of the weekend… like a biker gang!

Early morning sillies while the rain died down.On Sunday morning we went to the Oaklawn zoo. It seems to be in the middle of nowhere so I wondered how good it could be, but it blew me away! We were there early so the animals were up and about and we almost had the place to ourselves. Lions, tigers, a cougar, monkeys (so many monkeys), zebras… it was amazing! Oliver manned the camera during the trip so there are a million animal pics, but here are a few.
We called this porcupine Ash because it reminded us of Ash from the movie Sing!Oh my gosh, the goats. There were so many goats! I love goats so much, I think they are my spirit animal. They are really friendly because of course they think you’re going to feed them. The babies though… adorable!

It was such a great weekend! The camper is cleaned up, laundry is done… we are ready for the next one!
