This past weekend we took a camping trip to Malibu. We had a blast! There was so much to do from hiking to mountain biking, enjoying the beach, and all the regular stuff that goes along with camping--like spending quality time together enjoying God's beautiful nature! We really had a great time. On Friday night we heard coyotes. Sabbath we went mountain biking on the trails and then went to the beach where we saw dolphins and sea lions playing (you can see the dolphins in one of the pictures below). Then on Sunday we went for a hike and ran into a few deer along the path. Only in California can you see such a variety of animals in the same weekend!
Little Baby Steele seemed to love camping as he was awake almost all of Friday night and into the wee hours of Saturday. I've never felt him kicking so strong, but my whole stomach was bouncing back and forth all night long. It so amazing to feel him move all the time--he's going to be good at soccer from what I can tell!
The only sad part of the weekend was when we realized our air mattress had a hole in it and we had to keep refilling it throughout the night. We normally sleep on camping pads but since I'm 6 1/2 months along, I asked for the blowup air mattress for a little more comfort. Needless to say, we deposited it in the garbage before leaving--should've just stuck with the trusty old camp pads. We'll have to invest in a little more sturdy air mattress next time.
Enjoy the pictures!
