Camping in the Redwoods

It is not even June 1st and we have one camping trip under out belt for the year!  Scott and I packed up the kids and Aspen and headed to Jedediah Smith Redwoods State Park  for the weekend.  We have friends that live there that we have not seen since before Hannah was born and they were able to join us for two nights of camping and exploring the beautiful redwoods and Smith River.  Calla and their son Henry were quick friends and by the end of the weekend Hannah and Theo were at least on talking terms.  It was great to catch-up and enjoy some new scenery.

It was a little cooler than we were hoping when we made the plans several months before.  We all kept warm in winter coats and some hot chocolate.

The pack of four adults and four kids off for a hike.
Calla and Henry (with Theo not far behind) were quick to explore every log they could.

A moment to capture in history, they are all standing still and looking in the same direction at the same time.

We all enjoyed exploring the beautiful Smith River.  It was a little cool, but as soon as the sun came out (even it the temperatures did not rise) the kids were in the water!

These last few pictures are not of the kids, but are some beautiful pictures of the scenery.  What a great adventure!
