About two weeks ago, we went camping with Running Babe, Bean (her son), and her ex-husband Marathon Man (I know, they are divorced but still do everything together...WHATEVER!). We drove to the Tama area and camped out, sorda. We rented 2 cabins and roughed it as best we can. Our cabins were loaded with amenities, like a full kitchen, refrigerator, shower, toilet, heater, etc. So, we weren't really roughing it at all. But, we still had a great time.
We went on a few nature hikes with the kids. Some of the trails were quite challenging, but Jude was up for it. He kept pretending he was Bear Grylis from Man Vs. Wild. He kept pretending he was being chased by wild animals. It was awesome to be in the wilderness, even though we could still hear the sound of the nearby highway.
We had a great time and hope to do it again soon. Here are a few pictures from the trip.
