We had a crazy busy week, which is why this post is happening on Sunday instead of Thursday. :) We left for camping at Juanita Lake on July 4th, came back on the 6th, and headed up to Dunes Bible Camp in Washington on the 7th and we were there for a week. Here are a bunch of pictures from our trips!
This is before we left, Becca is helping Ruby ride a scooter in our remodeled church kitchen.
She had her keys and her water, and was ready for camping.
Happy 4th of July!
Ruby with Grandma Debbie.
She was so cold at night camping that I brought her into our bed. But then I slept really bad.. oh well. This is what we woke up to :) She's so sweet.
She loved sweeping the dirt around.
She also loves her cousin Lia.
We had lots of fun camping. Ruby was very busy and it was interesting having to follow her around all the time. Definitely harder than when she was 5 months old camping last year.
But she loved it! She collected lots of rocks and things.
Strolling around the lake.
This is her camp chair, but I think she only sat in it this once.
After normal bed time. Evenings were hard because I have such a loud family. Andy put Ruby to bed both nights and stayed in the tent with her until she fell asleep. The second night she was in our bed and he read to her until she fell asleep. So sweet.
Ruby with her second cousin Jonny who is about 3-4 months older.
We took Ruby swimming right before we left the lake. She wasn't too sure about it.
Especially the floating on her back in her life jacket part. After that we headed home for one night.
Ruby's morning face on Sunday morning.
Walking around with Grandpa Del on our way up north.
We ate lunch at Fultano's pizza. Ruby was not a fan of the train ride.
But she did like driving the car with Daddy.
She loved the little chickens at the camp.
Walking down to the beach.
She had tons of fun with our sand toys.
She ate sand a few times and then chewed on it. Gross.
Digging a hole.
Standing in the hole.
She liked standing in the waves. I had to pick her up a few times when they got too high.
We watched a few movies while Daddy was working at the camp.
Daddy got in on this movie.
What a peach. More pictures to follow on Thursday of the rest of our week camping.
Ruby's new favorite thing is to walk everywhere on her own. She says "walk" and leans down. She also had a little bit of stranger anxiety start at camp. When someone new comes up to her now, she says "mommy" or "daddy" and points at us. Just so she knows we're there, I think.
