This is what he calls a dollar:
So instead of saying I have a penny and one dollar he says" I have 1 Abraham Lincoln and 1 George Washington. I think it's so funny because it's almost as though he wants to say " I have some Benjamins!" I'm waiting for that. I'm not sure what he'll come up with for the penny.

This past weekend we took the boys camping at Christopher Creek along with my husband's Aunt and Uncle and their kids. Christopher Creek is about an hour and a half away from Phoenix. We have never been to Christopher Creek before and I must say it was a very good place to camp. Our camp site was in such a good location except for the fact that we almost got the truck stuck due to the turn off being to steep. We almost weren't able to get out and it took a lot of man power to figure out a way so that we didn't have to call a tow truck. In the end, after piling a lot of dirt and rocks we were able to get the truck out.
All the kids had the best time. I'm sort of glad that we were only there for two nights because toward the end of the second day all the kids started getting whiney. We made smores and did a lot of fishing. This was the first time the boys had been fishing and they loved it. They were so obcessed with the creek.
On the second day we took the kids up to the fish hatchery. They got to see all the trout up close. It was pretty neat to see all the fish in the different stages of life. Here are a few pictures from our trip this weekend.

All the little kids getting ready to go egg hunting.

And their off................

We thought they would miss this one because it was out of their view. Obviously we were wrong!
Hey, we had to get creative since there was not a lot of places to hide the eggs.
