We took Lincoln on his first camping trip last weekend. We didn’t stray too far from home (only 20 or so minutes down the road) and met up with our good friends Ricardo and Azure-Dee at the Kettle River Provincial Park just outside of Rock Creek.

Andrew headed out during my lunch break on Friday to secure us a site. It is a busy spot and the only available sites were first-come, first-camps. It’s a good thing too because when he arrived there were only a handful of sites left. He quickly set up the tent to mark our territory and came home so I could go back to work. I love that I get to go home at lunch and see Lincoln right now. Once Andrew is back to work that will change but it’s fun to get in some playtime and snuggles with the boy.

Already dirty

We left Midway after work and arrived with enough light left to set-up the site and light a campfire. Interesting fact, Midway and surrounding area was the only place in BC not affected by the burning ban this summer. Lincoln explored well into the evening and I had no problem getting him to settle down in the tent. Of course he inch-wormed around a bit before actually falling asleep but it was super cute to open the tent later in the night to find him smooshed against the opening. It was like he was trying to make his escape but he couldn’t quite figure out how the zipper worked. Soon, Lincoln, soon.

First campfire and first smoke in the eyes.

Glenn had to sleep in the tent with us due to his ongoing separation anxiety but the extra warm body was a nice addition given the cool weather. Lincoln kept wanting to keep his head as close to the tent as possible. No matter how many times I slid him down he inched his way back up. He woke up in the morning with a wet head of hair but a smile on his face.

Glenn did not enjoy being tied up all weekend.

One of Lincoln’s favourite activities while camping was playing in the Smith’s Winnebago. Unfortunately he couldn’t climb up, or down, the stairs himself so one of us was usually on duty.

His other favourite activity was climbing into and out of the tent. He loves to throw himself into piles of blankets and pillows so the tent was a big hit.

Here he is reading his favourite book in the tent.

Auntie Az helped Lincoln enjoy his pesto Saturday night. Lucky for her he was even willing to share.

Sunday morning was CHILLY! We had to light a campfire to keep warm until the sun came up all the way. Lincoln stayed toasty in his fleece pjs and coat.

We all had a great weekend and it’s sad to see the summer end. But like they say, there’s always next year!

Lincoln was a tired boy after the weekend and slept the whole way home in the truck.
