Derek’s family bought 3 acres of land near the Calamus Lake so we had our first annual Knorr family camping trip on Knorr land! The land was tore up from the sewer, electricity and water line trenches so the kids had a blast getting extremely dirty. Oh, wait, not dirty…
[Me: Henry, you’re in your pajamas, please get out of the dirt.
Henry: It’s not dirt. It’s… It’s… What is this stuff, Trevor?
Trevor: It’s dust.
Henry: It’s dust.]
…dusty. The Blakes are so generous and share their pop-up camper with the six of us and my mom, though Trevor and Henry actually slept two full nights in Trevor’s 2 (small) person dinosaur tent all by themselves. The plan for the future is to build a shower house with washer/dryer. Can I say that project can’t be completed too soon?

The campsite is fun but the highlight of the trip is the lake. The kids enjoy riding in Grandma Cathy’s pontoon boat and playing on the beautiful sandy beaches.
“Mom, take a picture of me jumping!”
Sometimes you just have to take the best photo you can get. And three out of four looking is about all I hope for these days.
Baby photo bomb!
We found that these swim diapers really hold stuff in. Derek discovered the hard way that it’s best to check inside before unsnapping them. Especially when holding the child on your hip. Ewwww.
Gabriel didn’t get much more than his feet wet, but he LOVED to dig.
Beach races–yippeeee! Even Gabe was shouting, “Set, go!
