We were so excited to take the boys camping for the first time at the end of August. El Capitan State Beach Campground is a wonderful facility located very close to the shore. Our new 3-room tent worked wonderfully, with the boys sleeping better than we even expected. Caleb loved his inflatable spaceship sleeping bag/bed, and Aidan slept in the pack-n-play. We stayed 3 nights. Caleb loved being outdoors, favorite memories include; climbing a tree with daddy, playing with this cool stick he found, having a tree frog jump on his arm, feeding the blue jays, standing on the rocks as the waves splashed in, eating s'mores, playing with the flashlights, sitting in his own little fold-up chair, hearing the train pass by on the nearby tracks, gazing at the stars while lying on a blanket, and hiking around proudly in his new "Diego" boots. Mommy loved waking up in the tent, with each child joining us to cuddle on our air mattress as they awoke. We also got to visit the Santa Barbara Zoo one afternoon, with the highlight of feeding the giraffes.
