April Getaway

We took a semi-civilized camping trip to Emigrant Springs Campground, where we met my parents for the weekend.  Being together was wonderful, as was the rest, the weather, and our surroundings.

7-cabin

We stayed in cabins.

8-park

There was still snow on the ground but the sun graced us with its face most of the weekend.  It was warm enough to sit out on lawn chairs (in the sun) and read.  When clouds rolled over or when the wind was a little strong, we played games, lounged, or ate in the cabins.

1cabin

The cabins were great, much like the yurts we stayed at in Fort Stevens. But these had a fridge, stove, oven, and the heater worked great.

2-cabin

This is where we ate in my parents’ cabin.  And boy did we eat.

gpa-cooking

My dad made most of the meals (my mom had prepared most of them before they came) and they were delicious.  I think I gained 10 pounds.  My mom and I ate almost a whole pan of brownies in one weekend.  This is not right.  Camping, hiking – these things should help me lose weight – not gain it!

sunita-rice-crispy

I think even the kiddo gained weight.  She opened her eyes and mouth as wide as can be for the Rice Krispies treats.

3-cabin

The fridge is in the right corner.

5-cabin

The baby’s PeaPod (her sleepy tent) covered by a blanket.

4-cabin

The mattresses were a little hard, but otherwise we were warm and comfy.

My mom and a giant tree, it just pulled right out of the ground.

Playing with grandpa’s gloves is fun!

Especially the tails.

sunita-pinecone1

Squishing a pine cone is fun. Well, at least I think it was fun.  She kept doing it.

sunita-hot-fire

Playing at the hot fire was fun.  If you look closely, you can see her blowing with her lips (the sign for hot).

sunita-mom-dad

Walking though the park was fun.

sunita-and-mommy

sunita-bath

After we came back from the showers every night she was exhausted.  Too much playing!

sunita-face

She had such a good weekend.  And so did we.
