Justin is all about the outdoors - hunting, fishing, bugs, mud, etc. All that fun stuff. He convinced me and some of our friends to go on a camping trip one weekend in September and it really was so much fun! It wasn't really "true" camping - no tents were involved and we had electricity and toilets, but let's just call it camping anyway. We stayed in a cute little lodge and let the babies run around outside a lot. Justin and the boys (and Candace!) went fishing and then we did a big fish fry one night. We played a lot of silly games at night and made s'mores. It was so much fun hanging out and making memories together.
Justin brought his new fishing boat and Emory had a blast "driving!" Justin was so proud of his sweet little girl and I just love that she has a pink tutu swimsuit and a big bow on in his manly camo boat! Haha!
Emory and Cameron's first time riding in a boat! Emory clung to me tightly and Cammie went into survival mode and went limp - it was hilarious! We think they enjoyed it...maybe.
This picture of Cammie cracks me up - she looks like such a big girl just hanging out in her chair!
These two are just too cute together! Their personalities are so different, but for the most part it seems to work well. They have so much fun playing together and they get so excited when they see each other!
Emory saw that Justin was enjoying a little treat and wormed her way up into his lap for a bite. She is one smart cookie!
Say "cheese!" Two dirty outside camper babies!
Best friends forever!
The only thing cuter than a baby in pajamas is TWO babies in pajamas!
This is how they were the entire trip - so excited to run wild and free!!
The trip was so smooth, even with two babies! They both napped well and slept pretty great. We were all happy about that! One thing I noticed and thought was so funny - I apparently only think about taking pictures of my child. I forgot to get any pictures of the rest of us! Oops! Next time! And yes, there will be a next time! Justin has already decided that we need a longer and "more real" camping trip in the future. I think I'll agree, as long as there are no tents involved! Haha!
Another fun thing that happened in September was wedding dress shopping with Candace!!
Wedding dress overload! We went to two different places and Candace was such a trooper trying on lots of dresses, even if she was ready for a nap! Haha!
Best friends forever - seriously!
A big thumbs up after Candace picked her dress! And can I just say that it is one that Alyse and I picked out?! I mean, we are so honored. : )
Candace's dressing room. Is she not the cutest bride ever or what?!
Her wedding dress is Oleg Cassini. Just couture. No big deal.
We seriously had THE best time spending the whole day together and just watching her dreams come true of becoming a bride. She looked amazing in so many dresses, but we all ended up falling in love with the same one. It was totally meant to be!! I can't wait to see her in it in April!!
And here's just a few other random pictures from September:
Sometimes when I tell the dogs to "go lay down," Emory runs over to their bed really quickly and lays down in it before they can. She is a mess! Haha!
Play date at the splash pad. These babies love the water!
My cute little swim girl! She looks so big and grown up here. Time flies when you're having fun, which we definitely are around these parts!
Thank you, Lord, for a beautiful September full of wonderful memories!
