Camping at the lake

We decided to go camping with friends for 2 nights this past week. Dinoguy loves camping! He was negotiating when the next camping trip would be while we were still there.There was lots of playing on the rocky lake beach. The water level is down, since we haven't gotten sufficient rain in a while, but it really hit home how much when we checked out the swimming area that is almost completely dried out. The kids are playing in what is supposed to be the deep end of the large swimming area. See the water level pole?Dinoguy really couldn't get enough of playing on the beach. He loved it. Trainboy had fun throwing the rocks in the water.
Sarge loves camping, he gets lots of games of fetch at the water and in the grass. He doesn't seem to tire out much while we're there but he was surprisingly calm for over a day when we got home. I guess he did get a bit of a workout!Munchkin did great on her first camping trip as long as she wasn't hit directly by the wind too much. She slept fine and mostly hung out looking cute.We had fun looking at the stars with my favorite star book - Find the Constellations by H.A. Rey. It is a great book to read with kids. I am starting to feel fairly competent at finding the winter constellations, can't wait to learn the Summer ones. :)

There were of course ghost stories, roasted marshmallows & hotdogs, ball games and fossil hunts. It was a grand time.

Did you end up finding any fossils?

A couple small shell ones. They weren't whole pieces. It was neat though.
