This past weekend we went camping. We went back to the Lake of the Ozarks state park with our tent, air mattress, sleeping bags, cooler, and whatever else we could fill the car with for a night by the lake. This was our first time taking Emma and we wanted to keep it easy, so we planned for our meals to be in town and not have to worry about food besides snacks and drinks in the cooler. We had a great time! We were able to take Bentley with us and enjoyed many walks, fun on the playground, swimming in the lake, making s'mores, and sleeping together in our tent. I have lots of pictures to share, so enjoy!

She was enjoying the air mattress
All unpacked and set up, now to sit and enjoy our surroundings
After the playground, we headed to the beach!
The public beach
Thats about as far as she went in, which was all I was interested in letting her go
The other side of the beach
Back to the camp and starting the fire
Time to eat!
Applebee's carside to go! Emma took her only nap in the car to get it, and we didn't have to leave Bentley in the hot car while we ate, so it was a win win!
My boys <3

Sunday morning on the lake
We didn't stay very long on Sunday because we had a dinner invitation to a coworkers house that evening. So we packed up, grabbed Starbucks, and headed home for showers. It was a great time to get away as a family and enjoy the last weekend of summer!
