~ camping ~

Charlie is on his second round of antibiotics, steroids, cough medicine and now and inhaler.  I'm feeling much better, but this cold has been nasty!  We've pretty much had the plague at our place since school started!  Luckily, the worst of it has stayed away from B.  She has a little cough and a slightly runny nose, but mostly it seems like allergies for her.  This is how cute she looked on Friday, Sept 9, in her Pink Hawkeye cheerleading outfit!  Isn't she big???!!!

 

Immediately after this photo was taken we headed to Pleasant Creek State Park to get away from it all and camp for the weekend. Pleasant Creek isn't a creek, it's a lake...but it is quite pleasant!

    
One of the reasons that I like this camping area so much is because you are surrounded by natural prairie everywhere you go.  The yellows are very active this time of year.





We saw a deer the first night we were there.  Then over the next two days we had encounters with a snake and bullfrog.  B. loved them all!! 







Another great thing about this camping spot is the playground.  When B would get bored, we would take a little walk and play on the toys.  Once again, these photos remind me of how unbelievable big she has gotten!







Believe it or not, some of the noodles did get into her belly!  The smiling is partly because of the "yummy in her tummy", but mostly because Daddy is making faces!



We took our hand-me-down scooter with us.  She didn't do too bad!  We should get out that helmet, though!  Daddy helped push, but she was also able to scoot herself a long a bit.  Steering is still an issue!





All that playing did make for a tired two year old!
