Steve has been having Friday and Saturday nights off work lately, which has caused for some diversion in the lives of the Flynns. In mid-July we decided to drive down to the Clear Lake area to go camping, just the 3 of us. We had a blast.
Evelyn has decided she much prefers standing to sitting or laying down, so we did a lot of that. She is still incredibly wobbly, though, we aren’t expecting her to walk for awhile yet.
We spend much of our time there sitting, building fires, and relaxing. She loved being outside. The weather was lovely, but there were a lot of mosquitos, that is why she is all bundled up.
She also really enjoyed playing in the dirt, and I loved letting her get all dirty.
We did go for a little walk (not really a hike, too short to call it that), and she enjoyed her time being strapped to her Daddy. I think he mostly enjoyed it, too.
At the end of our walk we got to the Tieton River (I think). We stripped her down to get her wet because it was really warm, but the water was too cold and she wasn’t interested. She did, however, want to eat the rocks.
After our walk we all needed a nap, but Evelyn wasn’t terribly interested in the idea. She mostly crawled on the floor of the tent and played with her toys while we rested. She was a pretty good sport about it.
We grilled some steak for dinner with tin foil veggie packets, and afterwards roasted marshmallows while our pineapple upside down cake baked in the dutch oven.
Evelyn went to bed before the cake was done, but she sure enjoyed the marshmallows!
