Lake Shasta Camping Trip

Last weekend we went camping and boating at Lake Shasta.   We had a lot of fun.  
Lots of pictures......your welcome. 

Granty assuming the position.  He tends to fall asleep a lot on boat rides. 

My boater boy

The many crazy faces of my boater boy. 

Noah gets to drive in the no-wake zones.

Adam pointing to Noah the direction we should go. 

Ava swimming with her daddy........and her sucker.

Nothing like taking a bath in the lake.  

We camped at a boat-in campground.  The kids loved running up and down the hill, getting really dirty and playing in the water.

Grant is never too far away from the food.  That boy LOVES to eat.  

I bought Adam this ice cream ball a few years ago, and this is only the second time we've used it.  You put the ingredients in one end, the ice and salt in the other end, and then roll it around until it turns in to ice cream. The kids had fun rolling it down the hill and kicking it around.  

And finally we got to enjoy some yummy homemade ice cream.  

Time for bed.  The kids go a little nuts in the tent, jumping back and forth from mattress to mattress.  Eventually, they all fall asleep.
 Breakfast.......donuts and OJ. 
Tube rides

Lake Shasta is really pretty.  After we packed up camp we went for a boat ride to check out some of the lake. 

Ava loves a good boat ride.

  Nothing like a weekend with the ones you love, doing what we love.

Looks like y'all had a blast!! How fun to have your own boat.

Glad Ava's surgery went well. Poor little thing.

AND thanks for all the new recipes! Mmmm!

I have only one word for you. . . jealous! That looks like so much fun. I really want to take my kids camping for some reason but the best I can get right now is a night at Kolob. Can't complain about sleeping in beds i guess. The girls will be thrilled to see that Ava has the same sleeping bag as they do. I love all of Noah's faces. He has grown up so much. We are all thrilled to see them in a few short weeks.

Great pictures, looks like so much fun! You need to hand the camera over to Adam a bit though so we get to see pics of you too, I know it's hard. :) You guys are such fun parents, the idea of camping with 3 kids stresses me out!
