Camping...Days 1 & 2

We made our first solo camper trip with the kids this past weekend. It was also our first trip to this particular state park, so we weren't sure what to expect.
Our first meal of the weekend. Sophie's a good helper.
First s'mores of the weekend.
Last time Owen had a s'more he got upset about the mess it created on his hands. We bypassed the fit by giving him just the graham crackers this time.
This was just a momentarily sweet moment.
We took a hike to check out some scenic overlooks. Cool!
This is Owen's "smile!" face.
We went out to breakfast the next morning at the Whistle Stop. It's the thing to do, apparently. We had an amazing breakfast in the rinky-dink joint. Our kids ate like they were never going to be fed again, and our waitress kept loudly (the place if full of seniors) calling us all sweetheart. We also mingled with some laid-back country folk who gave us some tips on things to see/do in the area.
Owen could not pause to get his picture taken. He's pointing to the cinnamon roll we were all sharing...the one he ate at least half of.
Sophie chose to order eggs and bacon (weird!), and she ate a ton of it!

This was a park we visited based on the recommendation of the laid-back country folk.

It was right by the water. It was also quite cool out, but the kids had a good time.

I took several pictures like this, but this one made me laugh because of the expressions on each of their faces.

This was at the end of a bike ride we took...another scenic overlook. Very pretty.
While Sophie picked "flowers..."
Owen was climbing a little wall...
over and over again...
always making it up alright...
but then getting stuck and yelling, "Hope!" [help!] to get back down.
