On the mountain there were lots of squirrels, chipmunks, birds, bats, skunks and such. Nothing like getting close to nature. When we got back to camp after our lake outing Nathan said that a chipmunk had run right by his feet, jumped onto the table, stole a m&m and ran away. We decided to sit and watch and see if they came back. Sure enough they did.
Here is the little guy now...
Finding some toffee peanuts.
Sniffing on the table. They were so fast! There were 3 of them running all over :)
The kids all stayed so quiet. We sat like this for about a half hour. Lorna did so good just watching. I guess it helps that they LOVE animals ;)
He got a green one!
Coming back for more
Now a red one is gone
Jeff spread out some m&m's on the floor to try to entice them more, but it didn't really work. Well, I'm sure those wild creatures were up for a while after that sugar rush!
Nathan and Tiffany had found some great fallen trees to take some pictures one. We headed up the mountain above our campsite to get some fun cousin pictures before packing up the camp.
Grant, Talmage, Mhari, and Bree
Sandra and Owen
Daddy and Clark
The cousins! We are so glad they love each other so much and that they were so good together!
Our beautiful kids!
Eating our last dinner together. Almost all packed up to head down the mountain in the morning.
We woke up at 5 am and started breaking down camp. We were on the road by 6:30 or so. Clark fell asleep again on the mountain roads :). Meanwhile in the other car poor Bree was feeling sick and really wanted off the mountain. She made it and all was well. Oh the fun times of camping and vacations!
