Last Thursday, we joined Rob and Abram for our bi-annual church camping trip. This time we went to Fontainbleau State Park. This was my first time but Rob has been here before with a couple of the other boys. This was his first time back since Hurricane Katrina in which the park suffered tremendous damage. It has been restored for the most part and is a beautiful place to camp.
Since Rob and Abram came a day early, we thought they would be able to get one of the same camping spots that we had reserved so that they could have the tents set up. Unfortunately, the park was full when they arrived and had to set up at a different site. Therefore, they just set up one of the little tents for the night. This meant that the tents were still going to have to be set up when we arrived.
Rob was able to move over to one of our reserved spots earlier that morning so he was able to move the stuff over before we got there. Once we got there, the boys helped Rob set up the big tent and the two little tents. Emma, Asa, and Sarah played in the van while they were setting up.
After we set the tents up, we left and went and ate lunch together at Sonic before the other families arrived. Yes, we grilled and cooked camping type food after this meal:)
While Emma, Sarah, and Asa napped, Rob took the others on a bike ride to the beach. This park as a beach on Lake Pontchartrain. After they woke up, I put Asa in the sling, Sarah in the stroller and Emma and I went for a walk. Pastor Dale and Mrs. Pat met up with us along the way.
Here are a few pictures of them at the beach:
