1) I lost Lambie, Josh's favorite stuffed animal, in Findlay Ohio when we stopped for gas. He must have fallen out of the truck when I got Josh out of the car and I missed him.
2) One afternoon we were playing with Josh in his bed in the camper and he disappeared. On of the canopy tie-downs was not secured and Josh fell through it. Thankfully, he landed on his feet because he could have busted his head on concrete.
3) We had a major battle over a PBJ sandwich. Josh didn't feel like eating it, but that was what was for dinner. After 16 hours and missing out on ice cream the sandwich finally went down. I hope nobody is thinking we were to hard on Josh and let him go hungry. He was NOT going to starve to death. He was eventually going to eat it and he did. The parents won one battle!
4) We have photos of this one. We were playing chase on the boardwalk and Josh fell off. He fell about three feet into several inches of muck. He wasn't hurt just scared. The best part of that was we had a several mile bike ride back to the camper with a cold wet kid. By the time we got to the camper his legs were blue and there was muck in his diaper. He went straight to the shower.
Despite all that, we had a great time. We went for ice cream everyday and sometimes twice a day. We went up to Cabela's. Josh loved all the animals, the fish, the boats, and ATV's. Who doesn't love Cabela's? Josh liked going birdwatching and the older people liked playing with Josh too. We fed the gulls. Josh's favorite part was chasing them.
One of Josh's favorite things to do is run and I mean run up and down the roads in the campgrounds with his dump truck. He also does stunt dump truck by tipping it up on two wheels. He has gotten very good at looking both ways for cars and moves over the to side of the road when a car comes.
In about two weeks we are going to Holiday World with my sister and her family. We are all very very excited to go camping with them. Josh is so looking forward to playing with his cousins. I'm sure there will be some good camping stories from that trip too.
