Camping Pictures!

Just arrived and setting up.

Ready to go swimming! What a pose.

Always ready to laugh.

Brushing teeth.

A dip in the pool.

Time for a snack!

Whale's Tale Waterpark! That's Bella and Olivia.

Em being very cautious, and Sophia in the back getting soaked by falling water. The design here is a pirate ship and every few minutes a huge bucket of water falls.

Grilling some ribs.
Night life.

We stayed at the Goose Hollow camp sight. I recommend it to anyone in the area. It was the most beautiful site we have ever been to. The owner was fabulous and the place is spotless! And get this, we barely used any bug spray. I thought it was because they had the site sprayed but, no! It's because they have a large amount of frogs and bats, who clean up all the mosquito's! No chemicals needed.

And we never saw a bat, if you were wondering.

It was a wonderful trip. and we are already counting the days until we can go back.

And I'm glad to report the trip started and ended without any turbulence. No mishaps. Well, just one. Our computer died. The motherboard and hard drive. Peter was busy driving around trying to fix things before we left. The owner knew someone who fixed computers, but there was no hope for ours. We were forced to buy a new one. most of the stuff on our hard drive was able to be saved. Thank God!! All my pictures and videos are there. But other than that it was clear sailing!

Love all the photos! So glad you had such a good time, and I will have to file the name of that campground away as we camp too, and have never been to New Hampshire. A campground with a short supply of bugs sounds perfect to me!

Beautiful pictures, looks like you guys had so much fun. I'm jealous! Emmie is the next swim suit model for sure, I love her pose, also love the one of her in her pigtails in her white outfit. I am so happy everything went well, you guys obviously got some quality time together, nothing greater than that.

I think Em was practicing some of her sister's ballet moves in that 2nd pic (back up straight arms out, now plie!
The pirate ship looked like tons of fun too.
Ugh on the computer, but so thankful you were able to retrieve all your stuff.
