Karina's great campout!

This is a story about a little girl who went camping in the great outdoors with her mom, dad and grandparents. Her sweet Papou (grandfather in Greek) even brought her a camper to sleep in instead of a tent!
And so after being well rested to help with breakfast she did go. It was such a yummy one that everyone had to tell her so!


Then before too long she was ready for an outing. So her mommy took her for a bike ride to do some bird, deer and gator scouting...

When she returned her dad had caught some fish. She said she would rather see it swimming and putting it back was what she wished...


And so after a quick chat that is just what they did, so she could go for a boat ride which is so much fun for a kid!


Well after a while her tummy was needing some snack. So she settled right in to her camp chair and decided to kick back..


Then some fishing of her own was in order. For with this little girl nothing about playing in the water could bore her..


That same weekend she also went to the beach. Her mom and Dad just watched her play and laugh in the water for that is one thing they haven't had to teach..


This little lady has so great a time playing in the sand. She really does thoroughly enjoy the water and the land..

She would run and swim and play all day until she could no more. And who am I to tell her no for lounging on the beach is no chore...


After a weekend of fun and some during the week too, this little girl had some fun with her cousins and saw animals like at the zoo.
Well not quite for they were stuffed and quite still and silent, yet she still got lots of joy, out of pointing each one out and then was ready to go get a toy...




Her mom had promised her a surprise and so that's what we did. She picked out a sea urchin looking ball and had lots of fun with it!

Then going back to the campsite she played and had fun some more. Her little cousins were so sweet and them she does adore.


Her Yia yia and Papou could not be more wonderful or great. They made a delicious meal of which she ate and ate...


Then after getting all cleaned up on one last adventure she did go. She took a walk with her dad and family on the pier to hear the sound of the waves and she thought that you should know.



With one last snack that night and one more kiss from her Yia Yia and Papou she said goodnight and see you soon and ONE GREAT BIG NEVER ENDING HUGE AND HAPPY THANK YOU!

*The End*
