This past weekend we headed up to Mt. Madonna to go camping. It was a really fun weekend, and so nice to be outside. Much to Jason dismay, we tent camped, since he waited until the last minute to find a camping trailer. I actually love tent camping and was happy to do it, although I did worry a little about sleeping on the ground being 7 months pregnant, but it was fine. Ollie and I picked Jason up from work Friday afternoon. On the way we stopped and had dinner. We set up camp, went for a walk and then our friends Paul and Amy met us up there. We put Ollie to bed, played games, and talked late into the night (ok it was like 11:30 but that is pretty late for us).
Reading Ollie books before bed.
Paul and Amy made a delicious breakfast in the morning. Pancakes, eggs, bacon, and fruit. Ollie loves bacon, in fact he snuck a piece while we all had our eyes closed during the prayer.
Jason supervising Pauls cooking.
Later that morning we went on a little walk/hike. Because of the fog, everything was really moist and these banana slugs were everywhere. This guy is little compared to some of the slugs we saw.
Amy was a good sport and played a lot with Ollie. She was his best friend by the end of the trip.

This one is blurry but pictures of Ollie looking at the camera and smiling are so rare, I thought I would post it.
Ollie "helping" Paul and Amy pack up their tent.
I love this picture. Paul took it while Ollie was suppose to be going down for his nap. What a sweet little face.
Hanging out by the fire.
Ollie loved zipping and unzipping our tent. He kept poking his little head out and saying "Hi" to us.
Paul and Amy had to leave Saturday afternoon, so it was just Jason, Ollie, and me Saturday night. Ollie was being a serious two year old, so we were happy to put him to bed after eating our tin foil dinners (which Jason severely burned).
The weather Saturday night was so perfect.
Jason was so sweet and played Scrabble with me, even though it isn't his favorite game. He even beat me, by quite a bit.
If you know Jason, you know he takes VERY good care of his things (a good trait to have in a husband if you ask me). Friday night we set up our tent in the middle of a ring of redwoods. It seemed like the perfect place, but the trees collected condensation from the fog, and our tent was 'rained on' all night. It sounded like a serious rain storm all night long, which was actually kind of cool, but it made a big mess of our tent. So here it is set up in our backyard so Jason could properly clean it before packing it up.
