We went camping up the Kern Canyon last week, camped right by the river. It was our first camping adventure as a family. Both the kids have had to deal with motion sickness, Teresa out grew it years ago (we won't count the whale watching trip). We thought Nathan was good, but he didn't do so well on the way back, but that wasn't even bad, we go prepared (small sand bucket with a grocery back in it works wonders). Now that a week has passed, I think I can say we had a good time, and we just might do it again some day. Honestly, I don't see what people like about sleeping in a tent. I'm all for a wienie roast and the marshmallow roast(no, not s'mores - I don't like those), love the hiking and relaxing in the fresh, cool mountain air, the camp fire(minus the stench when you return home), star gazing at night... but the sleeping in a tent - BAH! Give me a cabin!

No, they aren't photo shopped in, I used flash
Playing by the river. Teresa made little "fishing" poles
You can see the river behind the tent
Nathan is quite the marshmallow roaster, he does it rotisserie style, resulting in perfection.
He's FOUR now!
