When I woke up bright and early this morning, the clouds covered the sky like a camouflage fabric.
Of course there were lots of interesting bugs to be found while we were camping. This beetle likes to hide in the shadows, so his color is the perfect camouflage.
We saw several squirrels while we were camping, but none close enough for me to get a picture. So here is a picture of some acorns that we gathered last year. I bet the squirrels would have loved them!
The boys were excited to find some really cool shells while we were walking around. The shells were all very much alike, but the boys know which ones are theirs!
I also think that all pine cones look alike, don't you?
As far as I can tell, the wings on this butterfly are identical to one other.
Of course if you are going camping, you have to go hiking! The above picture is from when the boys and Daddy took off up a hill near our campsite in the evening. The next morning we all went on a hike together.
Our morning hike was a little more challenging than I expected. The boys loved it, but Miss Aubrey was not too enthused. So she and I ended up going back down the trail a little sooner than the boys. Miss Aubrey was so tired that she actually fell asleep in my arms as I was walking down the trail!
