Camping with a babe

We decided to go camping the weekend after school started... which means the weekend after I was totally exhausted from going back to work.  I think I was a little mentally disturbed to agree... I must have forgotten how exhausting camping is not to mention adding a 5 month old to the mix. Usually when we go camping we exhaust every possible spot in the car and Isaac is safely wedged in between miscellaneous camping gear. So this year it was especially hard considering we had a baby, car seat, stroller, pack-n-play, baby food, bibs, clothes, diapers, wipes and all the other stuff babies seem to need. At least I didn't need bottles since those are conveniently attached ;) We went with Josh's brother and his family up to Carolina Hemlocks and had a great time. We tubed down the river (minus Eli and I) and the boys had fun catching critters and riding their bikes around the campground.  I ate lots a few smores and we even went on a hike to a pretty little waterfall. When we got back I called Mom in desperation needing a nap (deflated air mattress and baby = no sleep). Josh and I dropped the boys off and went home and crashed for a couple hours.
