Weekly Winners - Camping Edition

May 16 - May 22

Visit lovely Lotus for more Weekly Winners.

We went camping and it rained the whole time.

Tent in Rain

It didn't stop us though.

P and H canoeing


The rain turned everything to mud.


So we were all wet and very muddy.


Awesome dog shake.



Did I mention the mud?


It was primitive camping (no facilities).

But it all worked out just fine.

Great pictures....rain, mud and camping and fun are not usually words I use together. But in pictures it looks super fun...love the last picture save that for senior graduation black mail!

LOVE the last photo!

You are a better woman than me. I could not do camping in the rain.

Oh man, what a camping trip!!

Last one = AWESOME!

I think it's awesome how you'll go camping in the rain and mud without facilities AND go glamorously dressed to the symphony. I don't have that kind of range. (The canoeing shot is my favorite.)

Frau and Jamie - The last shot is great, but I missed the one of the two of them side by side when they first stumbled out of the tent in the morning! I was still tangled up in my sleeping bag - could see them, but the camera was locked in the truck because the tent was leaking - grrr.

Mishi - Thanks honey!

Rebecca - Of the few things I do well, one of them is "range" (I love how you put it!). I'm up for most anything!

I really like the canoe shot. You may as well make the best of these times...it is the times like these that your kids will always remember...remember when we went camping in the rain...they will say as they get older. all the perfect stuff will just fall out of view after a while.

It looks like everyone had fun! Great moments captured. =)

Gretchen said...

Wait, having boys, I'd think they would PRAY for rain and mud and everything gross and yucky. For my boys, it would just make the whole trip BETTER! HA!

Gorgeous shots. So crisp and colorful.

Am I mistaken or do you write for one of the Silicon Valley Moms BLogs? Maybe Deep South??

Rachel said...

I ADORE the last shot. ADORE ;-)

SO fun! We're taking the kids camping in August and I simply can't wait.

Mary said...

I'm so impressed...primitive camping! Not me...I have to have a bathroom and someplace to take a shower! A Holiday Inn suits me just fine! :D
