Before heading to camp I was able to spend a few days at my mom and dad's place and then Todd met up with us at the state park on the weekend. It was so great to spend time with my mom and Dad, my brother and his fam, and much extended family. We had tons of fun there, the only problem was that it went way too fast!
We also had an awesome time camping. I love doing things over the fourth where we stay very active and busy and I have little down time to think too much. There are far too many difficult memories from that time that don't do me any good to relive. My parents, my brother and his fam, and Todd's sister and her kids all joined us for a fun time at the park on the fourth. Then the next day my parents and grandparents joined us for an afternoon and evening of fun.
Overall, we did a lot of biking, playing in the water, playing baseball, and just hanging out. Here are some pics to highlight our time.

This is my little man with my sister's boy who is close to the same age. They always have fun together.
My sister and her husband were telling us about these young guys they saw scaling this whole play structure without touching the ground. We, of course, thought we should do it too so...we did. Here is my sister on one part of it
One afternoon Todd and my brother-in-law took the older three boys to the 100 foot fire tower. This is not my thing, or my sister's so we gladly stayed back while the little ones took a nap. Here are the boys at the top.
