camping birthday

Last weekend our friends threw a camping birthday party for their son. Camping in February? Yep, it's the best time of the year to go down here!

It turned into a "progressive" birthday part of sorts. We started at the beach. The kids didn't think it was too cold to get into the water. They also piled 8 people into a 6 person raft. I wish I would have gotten a picture of that! (I was too busy chatting!)The raft itself was on the leaky side, so they didn't go out into the lake very far.

The playground was the next stop. We hung out there while waiting for the campfire to get started.

The final stage was the most fun by far. The kids got to roast their own hot dogs over the open fire. The girls thought it was the coolest thing ever! Before we left (we didn't stay for the overnight part of camping), M said, "This is the BEST birthday party I've ever been to! Can we do this for my next birthday?"
