Camping Trip

This past weekend we went to Cape Hatteras and camped in a cabin at a KOA. The cabin was a little small but it worked. It only has a double bed, bunk bed, and a small table connected to the wall. The weather was beautiful and hot. They had so much to do there. We got there Friday nite and just took a walk and settled in before bed. After the girls fell asleep we went out and sat outside on the porch swing.
Saturday Teagen had me up at 5am and then everyone else got up at 6 so after breakfast we headed for the beach at about 8. We stayed till 1. There were these 2 kids beside us who had these little nets. When the waves would come in they would just blindly scoop in the water adn they would catch little fish. That kept Payten happy and content while Teagen was in my lap taking a nap. Boy was that hot for me. After we went and ate lunch we headed for the 2 pools they had with slides. I couldn't believe both girls went down the slide into daddy's arms. We spent about 2 hours at the pool and the girls had had enough. They had a huge bounce pillow built into the ground and a water balloon sling fight set. We had fun doing those things before supper. OH and we took a train ride. Payten went around 2 times. We decided to eat supper right there at the poolside cafe. While we were waiting on our food to come out Payten fell asleep in the chair. She slep from 730 till 6 the next morning. Again after the girls were sleeping we went out and played Yatzee and Skip-O at the picnic table.
Sunday we headed for home. But on the way we stopped at the NC Aquarium. It was small but nice. Just big enough for the girls to enjoy it but not get too tired of walking. We were home at 530. It was nice being home early. Usually whenever we go somewhere we don't get home till late and then the girls have a hard time settling down for bed.
It was a great weekend trip. I think I am liking weekend trips better than week long ones.
Here are a few pics we took...

Man, now you know what you need to do to get the kids to sleep...wear them out! LOL! That is so funny. I feel like I haven't seen you in forever! I hadn't even heard about your trip. I'm glad you had a great time. We loved it there as well.
