What a great May Long Weekend. We went to the Whitecourt Lions Campground, roughly 2 hours north west, and had a great time relaxing and playing with the kids. We camped with Brad and his little ones and the Russells. Here are a bunch of pictures from the weekend.
We got there Friday night and relaxed around the fire before bed

In the morning the kids got up and were playing quietly when Chrissy and I decided to roll out of bed

Then it was time for Auntie Sue's waffles for breakfast
