We headed out with 18 of our closest friends, children and dogs for a family camping adventure in Hot Rock, Oregon. I can say that we didn't rough it too much. I jetted in on a plane, we enjoyed a swimming pool, public wi-fi, electricity and running water. And, we had some of the most amazing meals ever - complete with desserts like freshly baked apple pie, pineapple upside-down cake and molten lava cake. Yum!
And, the girls had a blast hanging out with the boys!

Marilynn decided on a Dr. Seuss themed birthday party to celebrate her turning 5. Thanks to Mawmaw, we had plenty of Dr. Seuss books for inspiration!

Marilynn decided to start her birthday with donuts - yum!
Then, we went to the mall to the Build a Bear workshop where she made her very own bear, who is now called "Ballerina."
Taking Ballerina home with us.

We rang in the New Year with no electricity! The power went out just as we were sitting down for dinner (we had tator tots to celebrate my resolution to not eat any fried potatoes in 2011), and then we just played in the dark for a few hours. The girls and I stayed up until 9 p.m. and then the power came back on around 11 p.m, so I totally missed watching the ball drop and kissing my husband at midnight (first time since we've been married).
This is the pre-dinner celebration when we still had power.
Although you can't tell (because our flash is so bright), this was our candlelight New Year's Eve. dinner.
Happy New Year to all of you!!
