Scavenger Hunt Sunday {07.21.13}:
The Camping Edition

This weekend my little family went camping together for the first time! Here are some pictures from our trip.

Camouflaged

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.

Nutty

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!

Alike

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?


Identical

As far as I can tell, the wings on this butterfly are identical to one other.

Jaunt

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!

  2. How fun! Great job with the words and what an adventure for the kiddos - camping was a favorite outing when I was a kid (not as much once I became an adult - the spoils of air conditioning!!!). Enjoy your Sunday.
