Memorial Day Weekend Camping

We went camping over Memorial Day Weekend to a favorite camping destination, San Elijo, right outside of Encinitas. There's usually more of a larger group that goes camping, but only one family was able to secure reservations for the holiday weekend, and because we tent camp, and they have a trailer, we were invited to join them for the weekend.

Rachel loves camping. And it gets easier and easier with each trip. She knows the routine and does great! Here's some cute pictures of Rachel from the weekend:

Morning strolls on the beach,
combing it for what was washed ashore in the night.
No camping trip would be complete
without at least one trip to VG's Bakery.

Scott and Paula's kids have outgrown the smaller boogie boards,
therefore Rachel and Hannah each became the new owner of them!
There weren't any kids her own age to play with and hang out with this trip, but the big kids all did great at including her and even played "Go Fish" with her.

A trip to the beach wouldn't be complete without a sandcastle, or two.
Paula's beauty trailer painted toenails to look like ladybugs,
which Rachel loved!

We had a great time camping and relaxing with our friends. Rachel's already very excited for going camping for a whole week come July! That trip will include some friends her age!

Looks like such a fun time! I love that top photo.

It looks like we're not going to get to do much camping this year. Usually by now we've been once or twice, but it just keeps raining and raining and raining...

That looks like so much fun! We might have to take Gavin there sometime. :o)
