Adventures in camping

This weekend we decided as a family to head to Yellowstone before Andrew gets to busy. We left Friday evening and went to Andrews parents house where we loaded up on the camping necessities. Since we kind of lack in that department. Then Saturday morning we headed up to Yellowstone. Side note, as we were leaving American Falls I realized we had forgotten Brooklyn's blanket, her most prized possesion. Anyways we got to Yellowstone and decided to go to Old Faithful first where I realized my camera was dead! GRRRRRRRRRRRR! Anyways watched good old faithful, got some ice cream and walked through the shops. We then decided to make the loop around Yellowstone which takes to Canyon Village and other places. We were able to buffalo, deer, elk (which Brooklyn called milk. Also keep in mind that each animal that we did see Brooklyn had to tell us what it was and if we tried to correct to made sure to tell you that wasn't going to happen.) and quite a few ducks and some very beautiful seanery.
By the time we made it back into west it was about 9:00 and I was sick, I had gone a litttle too long without eating. We went to a barbacue place were Andrew loves and had dinner. By the time we got back to our camp spot it was dark so Andrew and Drew enjoyed putting up the tent (ya I said tent) in the dark. They did a pretty good job, the next task was blowing up the air mattresses. We had two doubles and one single but the realized that our tent would only hold the doubles. Did I mention in the middle of the night mine went flat! GRRRRRRRRRRR! So I finally moved over by Andrew and slowly through the night the girls got cold and came by us. By morning no one was in the same spot the went to sleep in. Some how Drew got pushed onto the flat one and doesn't remember a thing. Brooklyn thought the whole camping experience was pretty cool especially sleeping in her princess sleeping bag.
The next morning we go up and went into town to walk through the shops. Drew and Andrew had been dying to get some fudge and we planning on getting it this day, but little did we know the candy shop is closed on Sunday (as it should be). So Drew decided to get a sheeps fur (GROSS), which he thought was pretty cool. Over all it was an enjoyable weekend!!
