we spend a lot of time out doors. so it makes sense that after months of promises we finally owned up & took cooper camping. we went to a fun little campgrounds in the sierra nevadas. and it was well worth the wait. we had an added bonus of 6 lovely hoppers. what more could anyone ask for? the boys loved exploring the outdoors & sleeping in a tent; but in all honesty, they could have been in a cardboard box & still have had a blast just as long as their cousins were there (okay, i'm mainly speaking of cooper here, t.j. loves his cousin but he was mostly focused on keeping within eye sight of his mommy).
