Leo Carrillo Trip 2009

Leo Carrillo is Awesome! Best place ever... well almost. I think this was like our 11th year going... except that we had to cancel the trip last year. Anyway, it has become a great Green/Termeer Family tradition. And, I wouldn't want to leave out the people that introduced us to the place years ago, the Bennet's. It always fun knowing we'll see them there also. So this was a fun and eventful year... every year is! Like the year it rained everyday. Or the year we saw three boys climb out of thick bushes and run across the highway barefoot about 3 miles from camp and realized it was mike, matt and gabe. Or the year Logan got a parking ticket but the cop wrote down the wrong vin number... that was a good year! :) Or the year I fell in the water while climbing on rocks and had to walk back to camp in my underwear because jeans+water+sand= really bad chaffing. Or the year John was like 15 and fell out of the tree and broke a bone. Or all the years we took Walter (this was his first yearnot coming...tear) So that list could go on forever of all the fun we have had at leo carrillo. On the first day my nephew Mazur almost fell in the fire. Luckily just his leg hit the pit... it was a pretty narly burn that we had to clean and re-dress everyday. But besides that no serious injuries this year! The weather was perfect the whole week! We got so lucky. This year there were three babies under 6 months. Afton did great and loved, loved, loved, being outside all day. We had such a great time that I can hardly wait for our annual Family Camp at Shaver Lake coming up in July!

One of Logans favorite movies is The Fast and the Furious... he realizes that it's pretty cheezy but still loves it. In the first movie Dom and Brian stop to eat at Neptunes Net which happens to be close to where we camp so on our first day after setting up camp we drove over and ate there for Logan. He was so excited and said it was everything he had hoped it would be. haha

Dad and Afton taking a nap.

Shout out to Suzy for lending me this bunting for the week. It was perfect for camping!

Cousin Mindy at the beach. As we were sitting at the beach they started setting up chairs for a wedding.

Aunt Becky and Mom

Ashlee was our designated "puter to sleeper". It was a little hard getting Afton to take naps at the beach but Ashlee always seemed to have no problem.

Flying kites with Mom and Dad. I don't really like flying kites... to boring. It's fun getting it up in the air and then it's like "what do we do now... just sit and watch it float up there?" Anyway, Logan loves it so we flew one while he was there.

Afton just liked chewing on it.

Lunch time

Mike was just a little to tall for his tent... he's taking a nap in the pic.

Aiden with the three wheeler that caused a lot of fights among the little kids!

Bath time... I'll be honest, I only gave one bath the whole time we were there. We're camping!

Gettting ready for dinner

Brooklyn and Afton. Brooklyns 3 weeks younger than Afton.

With Grandma at the beach

Mazur with his burn't leg bandaged.

Finally napping!

It rained for a few hours one of the days in the afternoon. It was perfect because it was after the beach day was over and we were getting ready for dinner. Of course out of all the tents ours, meaning mine and Aftons tent was the only one that leaked water in and got our sleeping bags wet.... not biggie... my mom always has extra sleeping bags.

Real camping! j/k the kids watching a dvd to stay out of the rain.

Getting ready for the Easter egg hunt. Logan and Sharon took the kids on a hike/walk while while the other adults hid the easter eggs. We did the hunt on Thursday before easter since we we're all leaving on Friday.

With their Easter baskets

And this is what Afton was doing during her first Easter Egg hunt... it's not like she would have had any idea what was going on anyway!

Now this is a little game called... Find the easter egg/s in the Picture.

Finally woke up from her nap and very happy. Dad found eggs for her.... so mom and dad could eat her candy!

Showing off my WHITE legs

Ash doing her job putting the baby to sleep

Cute little Reagen!

We skipped rice cereal and decided to just start feeding her the real stuff. She loves it and eats more than one jar at a sitting.

The three babies. Jacob, Brooklyn (tia), and Afton. Yes Jacob is 5 months old... just a very very big boy!

Mariah playing Peek-a-boo with Afton

We had a little Birthday party for Maz since his birthday was on the following Monday after we left.

And we found a baby rattlesnake in our camp. Logan didn't want to get close enough to get a good pic.... understandable!

Sharon and Peanut surprised us and made it for a couple of days.... it wouldn't be the same without them!
