Camping at the Beach

Grayland Beach State Park is our favorite place to camp!  We stay in this ADA campsite, privately tucked away at the very back of the campground, right next to the beach.  The kids drift off to sleep to the lullaby of the Pacific.  There is a paved loop that sees no traffic, so the kids can run and play freely all day long.  I could live right here! 

Gracie built a little tent, little campfire, and little breakfast for her little friends

"Daddy?  This coffee tastes like boots."

not sure why water is so much more exciting when we are camping

racing around the loop

the water was really, really exciting for Gideon

after watching the big brothers, Gideon got up the courage to try out the water

Gideon's trail

Gideon could have stayed here forever, splashing and feeling the waves move around him

sandy, soaked, and satisfied . . . heading back to camp for lunch

our campsite

Micah even ventured out of the tent for some yogurt
Camping at the beach is awesome!  
(And it didn't hurt that it was not 
pouring down rain all weekend, either!)

What an awesome family experience! Brings back memories of childhood when my parents would take us camping at the lake. Your kids will never forget it! <3
