KOA Santa Margarita

We met our Carlsbad friends, the Laytons, in Santa Margarita last weekend for a little camping.

It works out, cause everyone has a buddy:
Sally and Jacob.

Drew and Dax.

Owen and Gavin.

and Reed and August.

This was our first KOA experience and it was a good one.

Our site was on it's own little level (so felt private) and was right across from the jumping pillow.

We split up meal duty and ended up eating better than we normally do at home.

Saturday, we took advantage of all KOA's activities and amenities.

The pool.

The snack shack for ice cream.

The favorite: water balloon volleyball.

The playground.

Another favorite: the jumping pillow.

And a hayride.

The view at the top was pretty awesome.

All this, and the fact that the kids were just so happy to be together, made up for:
the heat
the flies
the bees
the filth
the long walk to the bathrooms
and the lack of sleep.

 Until next year!

I like lots of things about this post. August's tooth and tiger shirt, and his buddy. And August grabbing Justin's face. And all the activities. And I wish I was there..

When I was a child we went to a lot of KOA campgrounds but I don't remember quite so many activities. Looks fun!

That looks like more fun than any camping trip I've ever been on.

And I love Sally and Jacob and that Owen and GAvin always seem to have their arms on each other's shoulders! Cute little friends.

I want to go here! How fun is the ground-jumping-bubble? It looks a blast. It makes me miss those Layton boys... :)
