pearson's first camping trip

 Lolly and Pops bought a camper a while back and they are taking turns taking each of the grandkids camping!! A few weeks ago Pearson got to go camping for the first time!  We went out to the lake around 5pm and just hung out for a little while.  It was a little chilly outside so Lolly came prepared with lots of fun and games to play indoors.  
Pops grilled some awesome pork chops and I brought a potato casserole.  Mom made green beans, rolls and caesar salad.  It definitely didn't feel like a "camping meal".  
After dinner, we all sat out by the fire.  
Even Nash bundled up and joined us.  He couldn't take his eyes off the fire.  
It wouldn't be a camping trip without making some s'mores.  
Pearson definitely liked the idea of s'mores a whole lot better than he actually liked them.  He took a couple bits (enough to be a sticky mess) and then he was done.  
 Once we were all done eating our s'mores, Matt, Nash, and I headed home and left Pearson to camp out!!  Lolly & Pops turned the kitchen table into his bed and they said he slept great.  They made blueberry pancakes and bacon for breakfast then headed home. 
He talked non-stop about going camping when he got home.  Hopefully this won't be the last time that he goes camping. Lots of fun memories will be made going camping with Lolly & Pops.  And secretly I'm glad he gets to experience camping without me having to do it!!  Even though camping in a camper is not really roughing it all, it's not really my thing!!

That's awesome! Sounds like a much better camping experience than my one and only time to go! ;) I agree with Pearson - idea of s'mores is a lot better than the way they actually taste!
