2: 2 Toddlers and 2 babies will never ever all nap at the same time, so any relaxing you thought you'd get to do while everyone napped will NOT happen....but there are very few toddler noises a cold beer and good adult company cannot help you tune out!
3- No matter how well you plan drive time around naps and feedings, your baby will probably scream her head off anyway, and even though you said you'd never, if you take her out of the car seat for a snuggle, she will almost always stop screaming!
4-You can handle dirty, itchy hair for at least 4 days before your willing to jump into an ice cold lake with a bottle of shampoo!
5-Bees love a BBQ as much as you do and the one person who is allergic to bees WILL get stung, especially if there is no Benedryl in her medicine box...but if you ask around someone in the campground is sure to have some and what better way to make friends than to offer someone the opportunity to save a life?
6- Bed times are nul and void in the wilderness. The sunshine doesn't turn off at 8pm and neither does the fun...but if you let the toddlers scream long enough, they eventually tire themselves out...just kidding...kinda.... :)
7- It will only take the dog three days to figure out that if she asks to go to bed inside the trailer before the adults turn in for the night, she can sleep on the toddler's bed virtually undetected...and it turns out there's more room in the trailer when the dog is on the bed and not on the floor, so the adults will pretend they don't notice she's on the bed.
8- No matter how potty trained your toddler is and no matter how many precautions you take, he will probably shit his pants...at least once, maybe more....and you'll end up changing the bed sheets at least once in the middle of the night...
9- No matter how late you wanted to stay up bull shitting around the fire enjoying some drinks, the thought of early mornings with toddlers and babies will almost always be enough to make you turn in by 11pm!
10- Nomatter how tired you are, or how much you'd love one night in your own bed, it Always sucks when holidays are over!!
The girls bonded too:
And the whole day wrapped up with a campfire with s'mores
Biking in the rain...with buckets!
Ryder got something questionable and sticky in his hair. After three days, Marty decided to take some peanut butter to it...worked like a charm. Sticky substance easily removed!
Day 10: Our two families spent the morning exploring on our own. Us Wrights went to Coeur D'Alene. Beautiful!!! We hooked up with the Coles for lunch and took in City Park.
The boys played together, peed together and ate popsicles together all week!
Day 14: We sadly headed home. Holidays were over. Booo!
