Father's Day Camping Trip

My friend Sara and I decided, along with our kiddos, to take the daddy's camping for Father's Day weekend. We made reservations at Bull Shoals-White River State Park. It was HOT!!!!! all weekend, but we found ways to cool down (see pictures below). Once the guys found out about the trip they started spending every spare minute working on the boat to get it ready for the trip, which almost didn't come with us. But, they pushed through getting her ready to go at 2am the day we were leaving!

The guys, proud of their hard work!

Our family - the kids hate pictures in the sun, so this is the best we could get.
Taking the boat out for the first time.
So proud!

Megan wanted a turn to drive "Daddy's new boat"!

Aren't we cute!

We had to get some skiing time in. (In case you can't tell, that's Sara, not me. I was forbidden from skiing, for now...)

Showing off how redneck we can be down here in Arkansas! (Yes, that is an air mattress!)

The White River in the morning.

The guys got up early on Sunday morning to do some fishing in the crystal clear water of the White River. (Nate Harlan, I know you're jealous. You guys need to get down here some time!!!)

Jaime caught his first Walleye! We fried him up and ate him at home the next day. (The fish, that is, not Jaime!)
We all had such a great time there just might be a repeat trip next year.

Ha! I was totally about to call Nate over to see the pic of the fish, and so it was awesome you were addressing Nate under it and I didn't realize it until he was over here... we had a good laugh, and he is soooo jealous! I'm thinking a trip down to see you is in order! :) We did just get a pop up camper, so you never know... :) I'm so glad you had fun and got the boat ready in time. I am praying for you!!!
