Camping continued...

JOCELYN couldn't believe how fast the boys got dirty, hates nature museums and curvy roads, but loves a nice hike.
NATHAN, loved cooking marshmallows for s-mores, fishing, but not actually touching the fish, throwing rocks in the stream, and got sore ankles hiking. He also loved pestering Uncle Dandy, asking Shaun questions, and playing all the fun games Uncle Dandy brought.
SPENCER loved sliding on the big rock by our tent, exploring everything and describing it to us so wonderfully, cooking marshmallows, learning how to fish without actually touching the fish, and slept in the stroller for the entire hike to Tharps log. He is so tender-hearted! He made sure we put the fish back in the stream after catching them. In camp his favorite pastime was kickin' up dirt.

JARED is a true mountain man in the making. He loved everything about camping and was a joy to have with us.
That's a close-up look at the campers who drove up with me. Don't they look outdoorsey? I loved being with all of them and seeing them experience the awesome Sequoia Forestland. I am giving a camper's gold medal to Jared. He was sooo good and enjoyed every minute outdoors. He was the best hiker, believe it or not, and the only time he fussed was when we didn't get him out of the tent fast enough. He especially loved our little hike by Crescent Meadow to Tharps log, and examined everything along the way. To look at his face as he was walking along you would have thought he was in heaven... we were!

2 days packing, 8 hours of driving, sunburned face, 2 days unpacking, 4 loads of laundry; 28 hours of camping, well worth it!! Can't wait to use the pass again.
