Everything smells like campfire smoke...

We're back from camping in Ft. Stevens, Oregon and I feel like my whole life smells like smoke.

I've shampooed my hair now twice since camping and I can still smell the campfire in it. I laundered all my clothes, but a few still have a faint smoke smell. Ahhhh, the joys of camping!

The trip was super relaxing and fun.

We played a lot of games and sat around the campfire a lot...


And played Bocce Ball on the beach again...


We also did some great bike rides...


Family bike ride picture! Notice the newest female on the right. Yay, the number of girls is sloooowly catching up with the guys...


Silly family photo in a WWII jeep!


I love the family camping tradition, but I must say sleeping on my plush mattress back at home last night was pure heaven!

Oh and I don't miss the mosquitoes.

Or having to choose between walking 1/2 mile to the restroom or peeing in the woods when I wake up in the night having to go to the bathroom.

But I do love camping.

Just once a year.
