Camping at Lake Mead

We went camping at Lake Mead again this year, we got there on Memorial Day after most people had left. We were able to spend two nights this time, and we had a great time. We got more equipment for this trip; a queen size air mattress, an air pump, camping chairs, and a screened in canopy.

We spent a lot of time just relaxing. The kids use the tarp as an outdoor play room for their toys and books. We also played Frisbee and took walks.

It was our first time bringing Chloe and she behaved really well.

Frank taught Alex how to strike a match and light a fire.

Frank really liked his new, manly man spatula for the grill. It looks like a weapon.

We took a walk at the marina. A lady gave the kids a bag of popcorn to feed the fish and ducks. They really enjoyed that. As we were leaving they passed it on to some other kids.

The kids got Jr. Ranger booklets at the visitor center. They worked on them once we got back to camp.

Camping is such a fun way for families to bond. I am so glad that we do it.
