Unschooling Family Camp Out: Lava Hot Springs

What an incredible weekend we had camping with these awesome people~
 
 We caravanned out with The McNeil's towing our new campers~
So much fun! Many adventures to come~ 
 
We camped on our friend's family land in Grace Idaho and it was such a perfect spot for this crew~

 Awesome rock wall along the fault line to climb and explore~

 Dinner time~








 Happy kids~



 




 

 
 Campfire smores~



 






 Such a fun evening~
 The older kids were up late running and having fun under the millions of stars.  It was fun to hear the laughing and screaming with joy~
 
 Crashed out for the night~
 The next day brought more play while we gathered ourselves for a day at Lava Hot Springs~








Time to go play!


Enjoying the nice warm water~

















 
The water felt great but the day was heating up so we decided to head to the Olympic Pool~

 But first, some wanted to float the river~
We had to stay and watch them come down~

 
Happy river people~

Then, while the river crew kept going, Whitney and I took the littles to the pool to play~
 

 






 

Rowan loved it~




 




Sweet napping babes~


And big kids too~


The river wore them out~

 
Water slides!






 

 







 
The dad's all had a theme of feet flying when I looked back at the pictures~






 





Slowly waking~

 



 

Time to check out the kiddie area~

 
 
 
Silly David's~


He was so proud that he did the slide by himself~








 







 






 



 





Then we loaded up the unschool truck and headed back to the hot springs to warm up before heading back to camp~
 
Lava is a fun town.  I can't believe we have not been up here before now.  We will definitely be back~

Ice cream break~

 
The 112 degree pool.  Dares were made and met~

 

 
Smiley happy baby love~



Back at camp, time for dinner and campfire fun~
 

Another night of great conversations, yummy food, and happy people~
 
Group shots!

Time to say goodbye~
Lollypops for the road.  Thanks Jen!



 On our way out of Lava, we stopped for a pizza lunch at The Royal with the McNeil's~


Life is amazing as an unschooler.  We can't wait until next month's camping adventure!
