Last weekend all the Deckers packed up and headed out for a camping trip!
Ryan's mom and dad, Yvonne and George were of course there. Ryan's oldest brother Tyler, his wife Anna and their three kids Rilyn (3.5), Ryder (2), and Sawyer (5 months). Ryan's sister Stacey and her husband Jason plus their son Henry (3 months) came.
The only sibling not there was Clint and his wife Megan plus their son Xander (10 months) because Clint had to work. Boo!
We clearly missed the Decker baby train right?? SO many little ones-we love it!
The scenery was breathtaking! Big mountains, pines, low foggy clouds each morning.
We drove about 2 hours to Deckers, CO to set up camp. Ryan finished renovating the camper so that came along for George and Y-lo (what I call my MIL, don't ask) to sleep in. Ry and I tent camped while the dogs slept in our truck's covered bed with quilts.
Does Ryan resemble a giant in this picture to anyone else?
Y-lo and I enjoying our set up camp!
We cooked out, explored around with the kiddos, made fires, talked, snacked, and just enjoyed being outside together. Unfortunately Saturday night it POURED rain all night so our hot dog roasting/s'more making plans were ruined.
But Ryan got up the next morning and made everyone eggs, sausage, and toast for breakfast on his camp stove. He loves being the cook on our camp trips.
Cue my mom saying, "Ooooh I'm so jealous!" Y-lo said she was in her glory when I took this picture. Two baby grandbears to keep her warm :)
This little lady and I spent most of the weekend together. We explored, ate a s'more, played house in the camper, and took walks. Ryder is the sweetest little guy you will ever meet. That being said, he looked homeless all weekend because of how much he loved the dirt-haha!!
There were NINE dogs there between all of us (most chihuahuas) and they all had the best time. I've never seen Grumps exhausted but he finally was Friday night from all the fresh air, teasing Rilyn, tromping through the woods, and fun.
We had a fire roaring non-stop to keep up warm. So cozy!
Rilyn and Anna looking good and this happy boy is Sawyer who clearly had absolutely no fun on the trip
It was such a fun time! We hope it's an annual tradition to connect our family, enjoy creation, and just unplug for a few days. Time well spent!
Also, Rilyn borrowed our phone for awhile and announced she was taking pictures. They are HILARIOUS and I'll post that next. She is great at capturing the...unsuspecting...person and getting a great action shot. I laughed so hard when I saw what she got. Love her!
