First family camping trip

We took our first camping trip as a family last week!  We camped in Olympic National Park, near Port Angeles in Washington State. It had its ups and downs, just as life with a toddler always does.  Ellis was a trooper, never got cold, hoarded the warm side of the sleeping bag, chased away deer, poked the fire with sticks, and preferred raw marshmallows to toasted ones.  He has no patience for s'mores.  

Good job, dad!
We learned a lot about camping with a toddler, and we definitely had to change our expectations of what camping looked like before Ellis came along.  Now that I've had a chance to take a hot bath and sleep in a bed for a few nights again, we're ready for our next trip!
