We celebrated Jackson's 1/2 birthday by taking him on his first camping trip to the Salton Sea. This is a trip we've done, many, many, many times before - we love it out there. I'm a little attached to the crazy, post-apocalyptic-ness!
When we camp down there we like to make our usual rounds: we go to the mountain, we eat at Ballesteros (or Bobby D's), we take a dip in the hot springs, we visit the mud pots. What we didn't do this trip was make it out to Slab City for their music night on Saturday. Justin, Jackson, and I ended up leaving on Saturday afternoon because it was windy and cold. Poor Jackson was pretty miserable at certain points. On Friday night it was so windy, Jackson was tripping out in our wind-slanted tent with the walls whipping around making crazy noises, that he just lost it. Jackson and I ended up sleeping in the car where it was nice and quiet and he slept pretty good. Actually, he slept better there than he has at home the last couple of nights!
I'm already looking forward to the next camping trip, we have many adventures ahead.
My baby boy is six freakin months old

Jackson slept almost the whole time he was at the mountain... sensory overload perhaps.

No babies were harmed in the taking of this photo. No hot bubbling mud came in contact with my baby boy, promise.
The gang at the mudpots... the kids were having a blast! I'm looking forward to when Jackson is old enough to enjoy the mudpots!
