We started out our July 4th weekend on the 2nd. We were going to Littleton for the 4th, but had a few detours on our way. Our first detour was checking out the new puppies - one of which we'll take home the first week of August or so. They are just so cute! The kids all loved them. I'm not sure which one we will end up with, but it doesn't really matter! Anyways, that was stop number one.
Stop number two was for camping. We met Grandpa Max, Uncle Joe, and Nicholas (cousin) for a camp-out. We had a great time and it was super fun to be with our extended family!
We called this camp, Camp Free Willy. There were lots of names we could have christened this camp-out, but Free Willy is what we went with. Why? Did we watch the movie while camping? Nope, we brought along Wilson and he just got to roam all over the place - unleashed (due to his girth and, especially, his age, he doesn't go too far nor too fast). It was so great just watching him wander and explore. Our kids, at first, we soooo nervous - "Dad, he's going too far!" "Dad, we can't see him?!" "Dad, we need to put him on a leash!" etc., etc. It was cute. But, really, Wilson just had the time of his life. Probably the best time of his life. It was grand to watch.
Anyways, here are some of the pictures of our fun camp-out:
Anyways, it was a fun way to start our vacation. :)
