Camping Adventures: After Dark

We pretty much counted down until we could start the fire. Because really, the fire is the fun part :). 

In the meantime, we cleaned up shop...

and collected some firewood. With our mini ax. Which was quite amusing.

(no... unfortunately, we didn't chop this one)

matching lumber jacks!

 love her.
Mark got our fire started. He was our professional fire-maker and sustainer.

The doggies got to wear their new jackets for the first time. 

We had hot cocoa and s'mores. of course :)

We talked and enjoyed the night watching the fire and the stars.
Holy cow... there are a lot of stars in the sky we don't usually see in San Diego!

Then, bedtime :)

In the morning, the pups ran around a bit and 
poor Emma bear found a swarm of bees... and got stung... a few times.
Thank goodness for Benadryl! And her bed.

 Baker hung out with us while I packed up.

 It was truly the funnest trip. I had no idea camping could be so fun. 
Thank you, Mark and Katie, for helping create such a special experience for us.
Let's do it again next year!
