Most of Connor's drawings are still scribbles that all look the same to us but have specific meanings for him. However this drawing was one of the first that we saw the same things he did - it's a self portrait he called "Connor with a happy face" - it's hard to see in the thumbnail view but if you click on it to view the larger version it'll look a bit better!

Sitting around the campfire. We made s'mores, of course, but Connor prefers to call them "snowman sandwiches" :)
We had lots of fun, though not everything went exactly as planned. We got both boys to sleep at a decent hour but around midnight Jeremy woke me up to tell me that the air mattress he and Logan were sleeping on was losing air. We didn't want Logan sleeping on the cold ground, of course, so we tried to move him over to the mattress that Connor and I were on. He didn't like that at all! I'm sure he was scared to wake up in the dark not knowing what was going on or where he was! We couldn't get him calmed down at all so I ended up taking him home around 1 am. Connor, Jeremy and Bailey stayed and had a great rest of the night. Logan and I came home and went back to get them in the morning. Besides the unexpected trip home in the middle of the night, we all had lots of fun! Hiking is Connor's new favorite thing to do so I'm sure we'll be doing more of it. He didn't even wait until we got out of the campground to ask when we are going again!
