First camping trip with a heart kid

  Well due to many things obviously in the past 3 1/2 years with Shane and having another child just 15 m apart we had not had a chance to go camping. Well the time finally came where we were in charge of the Cox side family reunion. We chose camping at Bear Lake. Shane and Jeremy had a blast throwing rocks, playing in dirt, digging in the sand, playing in the water at the beach and playing with their cousins.

  The weather was murky, it only got to be maybe a high of 70 the whole time we were there and nights were in low 50s or high 40s at night. We made sure the boys were in very warm Jammie's and in sleeping bags. The boys kept warm at night, but once we got out of the tent every morning  it was a whole different story. We put their jackets on over their Jammie's and their shoes on. Sat them y the fire under a blanket.  One morning Shane looked like a mix of purple and blue all over his face and his hands.he was freezing  shaking and not warming up!

  We put several blankets on him and got closer to the fire as we sat hoping we would see normal colors soon. It took a while, but he finally turned normal colors again got up and continued to play with his cousins. This was our first time camping with a heart baby and it won't be our last we will just have to remember that Shane needs a little more wants in the mornings.
