This year for Memorial Day Weekend we went to Fish Lake in Wenatchee. It is kind of a tradition in Peaches' family. This year was the first time since I have been in highschool that we were able to go. We were able to take the kids and have a blast. We did meet a few bumps in the road...We had to take Doble to the doctor for pink eye (everything turned out fine) and one day we spent in Wenatchee looking for a senior ball dress for Bailes. We didn't have any luck, but it was still fun.

Camping with two little boys can be a challenge, but it was also very very fun. Lil' E loved sleeping in his own sleeping bag on his own airmattress. Doble on the other hand had a rough night the first night. He woke up at 3 in the morning crying really hard. This is not like him. The campers in the sight next to us were pretty upset. They couldn't say much however becuase they kept us up half the night with their talking. And it is not like you can get upset at a one year old. He wasn't doing it on purpose. He was just cold and confused. Lil' E was fascinated with the fire and we had to keep him away from it alot, but for the most part he was a really good listener. Papa on the other hand almost caught camp on fire with his "Ring of Fire" trick. It was all good though.

Bailes' DIRTY feet.

When he wasn't in the playpen Doble enjoyed hanging out in the camping chairs.

Sleeping like a log. Both the boys did really good sleeping out in the wild (well after that first initial night).

MMM...Papa sure does know how to make yummy food. The boys especially loved the corn on the cob cooked over the fire.

You can't go to Fish Lake without going fishing. Daddy, Lil' E, and Papa were the first to go out onto the boat. Mommy, Mema, Doble, Bailes, and Erca tried their luck on the dock. The dock was way too crowded so we caught NOTHING! The boys on the other hand came back with quite a few and Lil' E even got the chance to reel them in. He had alot of fun out on the boat. He was walking around as if he owned the thing and wasn't scared at all.

Good Luck Boys...Catch us some yummy fish for dinner!

Looks like we have plenty for dinner

What little boy doesn't like to throw rocks in the water. I don't know what it is about rocks and water, but Lil' E loves to throw them in. I think he gets it from his daddy becuase D.J. was having just as much fun as Lil' E was throwing them in.

Lil' Eprobably could have spent hours throwing rocks in if we would have let him.

What do you do when you are too far to take your child to a bathroom to go potty? I guess you could try this...
Fishy, Fishy in the Sea How many times did you go Pee?
I know we could have had him go in a bush or behind a tree or something, but he had to go and he was so excited to go in the river.

Right outside Leavenworth there is a little candy store that is full of different specialty candies. We stopped there twice while we were camping. Some of our favorites were the Kookaburra Australian Black Licorice, the Saltwater Taffy, and the 10 cent Candy Sticks. The veiw outside of the store was beautiful and we just had to take some family pictures.
