Camping with the Grandkids (well, some of them!)

We had a quick weekend camping trip with our daughter and her family.  With four little boys there was lots of playing in the dirt, playing in the stream, eating junk food that Grandma brought, riding the RZRs, making s'mores and most important, making memories.  Yesterday morning I was up before anyone else, camera and tripod in hand, to see if I could find something worth photographing.  I think it was around six and the sun was just lighting up the surrounding cliffs, and the sky was beautiful, so this is what I got.

Soon I had company and realized I was not the only early riser in the group.  Taylor, Chase, Bennett and Owen decided to keep me company!

Hi Karen, Looks like you had a great weekend with the grands....FOUR little boys, huh???? I had three.... If I had have had more children, I'm sure they would have all been boys... ha ha ....But my first grand was a girl--so I spoiled her rotten.

Glad you had a great time camping...

Hugs,
Betsy

I like both photos. There is nothing like camping,we just got back from the Uintas. A campfire And readingg a good book unnder the awnning with a slight rain. The photos are great but the clouds are the real standout.

Well, four adorable little boys with trees bending their boughs over them for protetction, and the awesome cliffe behind them! They are dwarfed, yet proteted. That is what I get from this picture. One picture is truly worth so many words! That is what we used to call a buttermilk sky.

That is a gaggle of boys you have there. I like the sun shining in the distance, creating a 3D look and the little boys in the lower forground makes everything look big and tall...shows actual size of the landsape. Great shot.

Sounds like a great time! I love the picture of the boys... the windy road behind them creates a neat effect!

The clouds look just like cotton balls ... what a great place to enjoy the grandchildren.

Well you definitely found "something worth photographing" and that first shot ain't bad either.

Unbelievable clouds. You couldn't have painted them any better than this. Beautiful light, too.

It's so much fun being a grandmother. I think it's the best thing about being a parent. The best comes later.
