Dan's Camping Trip

When Dan was 5 days old, Grandpa Mark arranged an amazing camping trip in our BASEMENT for Dan. I knew something was going on, because it seemed like everyone was up to something that day! They were trying to be sneaky.. hehehe. Grandpa came upstairs and said we had to get our "camping" clothes on. (I was still very post-baby) but managed to squeeze into my camo capris. (Note: Dan was already 5 days old and his mom had still not washed her hair yet, because she was with him 24/7!) I dressed Dan in a brown and white onesie that had a bear on it :) and some little brown pants, and some brown and white socks. It was the perfect camping outfit for Dan. :) We have a projector in our basement, so from youtube we were able to project a video of a campfire!! Our basement looked completely different -- like the great outdoors! There were also some strange looking animals down there.. hehe. I was still pretty sore so it was hard for me to sit and relax and enjoy myself. Im pretty sure Dan loved it though! He got to eat down there and hang out with his adoring family.

This video is hilarious. Thanks to Uncle Nash for filming it. Dan's eyes are REALLY wide open in it!He must have been really excited to go camping.  I love how you can here Grandpa Mark in the backgroud saying "You need to have camping apparel on" haha. FYI, Gpa Mark is wearing that mask because he had a really bad cough :)

Dad, Uncle Nash and Mom w/Dan. (notice the rug with the LEAVES, the sleeping bag, the camping chairs, the TREES, the strange pink and orange animal, the purple rabbit!!)

We are so thankful for all the wonderful memories we have of Dan. We love him and miss him so much.
