Last weekend we joined A's family and went camping at Cachuma Lake in the mountains above Santa Barbara. The best thing about camping in the winter is getting the prime spots.
As soon as we were set up I sat in my camp chair and starting painting.
Here is the view from our campsite.
We got really lucky and enjoyed fabulous weather (although it was freezing at night!) Normally the husbands take all 4 kids camping and A and I stay home enjoying the quiet and maybe a girls night out. I knew that camping with moms would be slightly different for the kids when my son, watching me pack plates, said:
"Why do we need plates? You hold a hot dog in your hand and eat chips out of the bag!"
|This log is normally submerged but the lake is low right now. I love the texture in the wood.|
|Obi's first camping trip and first boat ride. He was very well behaved!|

|Best trout I ever ate (and I'm not a fan of trout.) Yes, my son is kissing the fish. Crazy kid.|

It's been a long time since I've shared at Paint Party Friday so excited to link up!
