4th of July Camping Trip

We just got home from a 4 day camping trip in Bandon with my parents and niece. The weather was perfect, clear skies and sunshine the entire time. It was quite a nice treat for the Oregon coast. This was our first time taking Gabriella camping this year. We camped last 4th of July with her when she was really little, so it was fun to come back a year later when she could understand and enjoy what we were doing.
Digging in the sand with Ariella. She wasn't too sure about the sand at first,
 but then she was digging like crazy!
After we had played in the water that chased us

Waiting for the parade to start

First time on the merry-go-round. She was rocking back and forth because she was excited so Matt had to put his arm up so she didn't bang her head on the metal bars.
Everyone perfectly balanced on the teetter-totters. Matt & Dad, Mom & Ariella.

All of us!

Holding her first sparkler by herself. We let her hold 3 of them and she only singed her hair a little.....

Here's a video of her holding one of the sparklers.
And the traditional end of camping trip feeding of the seagulls. Matt and Ariella are feeding them the leftover pancakes, buns, etc. This was seconds before they both came sprinting back to the car!
