Camping is more and more fun every we go. I really love how much we all enjoy spending time together. The girls said there isn't anything more special than time with family. Do you hear my heart sing?

What's even better is that the girls are getting big enough that they don't complain about our long hikes or being too tired or too hot or too cold or too hungry. They just went with the flow and as a result we all had more fun for it.

On our walks I'd stop and say "Point to something purty!" and everyone would point in a different direction. It's not hard to find something pretty when you're camping.

One of my favorite aspects about this camping trip was Addie's imagination. This girl is incredible. A pathway lined with rocks wasn't just the route to the toilets. It was a magical pathway lined with happy rocks. Just walking down the path gives you good luck and gives you happy things. The sounds of nature weren't just birds singing and leaves rustling in the breeze. That's nature's music you're listening to, and it's music that makes people want to get up and dance. And this photo? She turned a plain pine cone with a few leaves and seeds, and turned it into a pine cone buddy.

I can't help but smile.
