Blogging by the campfire

We decided to take an impromptu camping trip, so I did some blogging in front of the campfire. Yep. Out in the middle of the wilderness, but still connected to wireless Internet. Gotta love technology. You can never be too far out of touch, unless you really, really try.

My favorite Milly quotes from this camping trip...

After arriving at the campground and getting all set up: "When are we going camping?"

"Mommy, pick me down!"

"Peetend I'm da Mommy, and you da baby. Go to sleep baby."

and the best one...

"When we gonna marsh da mellows?"




















Seesa spent most of her time chasing butterflies, catching lizards, riding her bike and pretending to be Bolt. Or making Milly pretend to be Bolt. Or pretending Soggy Doggy is Bolt...she's really into the movie Bolt needless to say.


So, in the words of Rhino (from the movie Bolt, that I have completely memorized since we've watched it about a million times), the camping trip was "fully awesome"!

Except that my laptop now smells like campfire smoke.

Disney is not paying me to endorse the movie Bolt - they're probably still bitter about my post about their supposed "fast play" option on their DVDs.

Ooh what cute pictures. I love that hat, of course! I'll have to get a pic of us in ours! And how fun - I love that you bring the kids camping. May I ask - do you all sleep in one big tent? Or an rv camper? Matt and I just love camping, but aren't sure how we'd do it with the Foo. When did you first bring them?

Also - YAHOOO!!!! I am so excited to meet you in July!!!!

ps I have never even heard of Bolt!

I love the idea of camping. But the actual camping... not so much. It's a great way to have some family bonding time though. Looks like a blast.

I think I liked Bolt more than my kids did. It's a great movie.

It looks like a wonderful camping trip and Millies's comments made me smile.

THe camping looks fun! My kids have been begging us to take them camping, in a tent. Grandma's cabin apparently doesn't count.

Disney fastplay? I totally agree, biggest joke ever!

This looks like you guys had a great time! Your girls are so funny-I love those kinds of shares.

Heather said...

You are too funny taking your laptop camping. I love camping except our tent is getting rather small now with all 4 of us and the dogs.

As for the question I live between Santa Cruz and Monterey.

Marsh the mellows...I love that.

I hope you had a blast.

I have to say I'm blown away, internet access in the wilderness. Damn right, technology is amazing

I swear Milly needs her own blog. She is HILARIOUS! Her deep thoughts put mine to shame.

I love the smell of campfire smoke. I actually like to sleep with my smoke-filled clothes on my pillow. Not being sarcastic.
