First pit stop - Dodge City, Kansas...

We finished our first leg of the trip and set up tent in Dodge City, Kansas.  The boys were more than happy to go swimming with Uncle Mike in the lake at our campground... so glad that Uncle Mike pointed out that it was probably run off water full of fertilizer from the surrounding fields... thanks Uncle Mike.

I'm kind of embarrassed to say that this is our first official night as a family in a tent... we always had the equipment, but it seemed like we always had an excuse or were busy when we were living in Virginia.

The boys settled right into camping and we had a great first night!

Needless to say, the boys were doing well, but the tent wanted to blow down in the wind!  If it was going to blow over in Kansas wind, there's no way it would survive New Mexico wind... I think we are going to have to rethink this particular tent.
