Last night we got home from camping at Lake Wenatchee. Most of us that is. I took the kids and Maren stayed home. We had originally thought we had a soccer tournament [for Preston] and with everything we were not going to go on this trip. The soccer tournament was moved, so I decided to take the kids for a few days to hang with their cousins and everyone. Maren stayed home, worked Thursday and Friday, had a nice lunch with a friend, and hopefully had a nice relaxing time with the house to herself. We are now home, and her peace is interrupted!
Camping was fun. The first night was a bit rough in the tent with the kids as Lillie did not sleep well and Hansen was a bit freaked about the loud wind and trees creaking all around us. Second night was better, probably because they were so worn out. Daytimes were great. Lots of playing at the campsite and in the water. A very nice time. I offered to drive Alex and Claire to Wenatchee in the van...part of the caravan to the campsite. A stop off at McDonald's in North Bend got us off on the right foot.

Preston decided he was too old for this kid picture.
