It has started to get hot in Phoenix. Apparently it is only going to keep getting hotter. Momma and Daddy told me that they love to go camping in the summer to get out of the heat. But they haven't gone much since they had Lilah and were afraid that we would never go now that I am here. I guess the thought of one toddler, one infant, and two dogs sharing a tent with them wasn't too appealing. I have no idea why that would be. So long story short, the decided they needed a tent trailer and went out and bought one. They were so excited that the very next weekend they decided we needed to head up to the mountains for a one night test run. It took them a whole day to get us all ready but we did it. We headed up to the campgrounds north of Sedona on a Saturday morning in the middle of May. Now, that was a silly idea because these are some of the most popular campgrounds in the state and they were all busy. But when we arrived I was crying because I was hungry and sister was whining that she needed to go to the bathroom. So they pulled into one of the campgrounds that said full. Daddy went to talk the camp host and miracle of miracles, they had a reservation cancellation and had one spot left. So we got lucky. We pulled in and got camp all set up. I just sat in my fun swing and watched Momma and Daddy while Lilah played in the dirt.
After getting set up it was time for some relaxing. Sister had a bit of an accident, falling down on the road. She scraped up her knees pretty good and was a little grumpy about it for the rest of the night.
Once nightime fell, Daddy built a big fire and Momma got me all cozied up. I couldn't believe how much she made me wear, but as the sun went down, I probably would have put more on. I like to be warm.
The night went well in our new trailer. I was only in my pack n' play for half the night before Momma just pulled me in bed with her because it was cold. I would cry because I was hungry and she would put me off for awhile. I think now she realizes why taking a nine week old camping can be a bit, um, challenging. I ended up waking up Lilah at about 5 AM so Momma finished feeding me and then climbed into bed with her. Considering everything, the 7 AM wake up time for everybody was pretty good. And don't think that potty training was put on hold just because we were camping.
