Here are a couple of hints:
Gavin and our family went camping!
Camping isn't really my thing and I wasn't so sure that it would be Gavin's thing either, but since my mom rented this cabin for us to stay in, we decided to give it a try.
And, we are so glad that we did! We had a great time! We got to see many of our family members that we don't get to see very often. We roasted marshmallows. We made campfires. We even threw tomahawks!
Gavin went swimming!!!
He wasn't so sure about it at first. As you may know, Gavin hates water!
He even fell asleep in my arms to escape from what we were doing to him! He does this sometimes. He just checks out when he is not happy about something, I guess to get away from it all.
But when he woke up he was quite happy and even started to enjoy the water! This is HUGE for Gavin! I hope this fondness of water continues! Bathtime would be so much easier if it did!
Nolan and Caleb swam so much that we were sure that they would turn into fish!
Jacob was off hanging out with my cousins' children, so this was the only picture that I got of him. But, he said that he had lots of fun.
I think that Gavin had a wonderful time too!
Shockingly, I can say that we can't wait to take him camping again!
