July Camping Trip, part 2

Continuing from yesterday's post, here is what we did while camping at the Newberry National Volcanic Monument in Central Oregon.

One fun camping activity was to have the teenager take self portraits while Mom and Dad were loading up the car to go swimming. Please note how straight her hair is; it squiggled up into tight curls as soon as it got wet.

We brought some games to play in the afternoon. Of course, since we knew we were camping on a mountain in bear and cougar country, we had to bring along the Survival Game. According to the game, we all died.

I think his finger is stuck up his nose...?
(Yes, mom, that's a box of Twinkies in the food bag.)
Ooh, which reminds me to ask: Have you ever tried cooking Twinkies over a campfire? Just stab one with your weenie roasting stick and roast until golden brown.

At dusk, we had a contest to see who could take the scariest picture of themselves.
Frank wins because he's smoking.
He quit smoking a month later, but that's another story.

Check out our sunburn!

And no camping trip is complete without S'mores.

...Mere seconds before she burned her fingers on the metal prongs.

Here's a video she shot moments later.
