Once WanYing settled in, though, she seemed to enjoy the experience just as much as the rest of the Morningstar kids (and that's saying something - this is a family that loves their camping!). And she looks simply smashing in a bandana and insisted on wearing her "hat" for most of the weekend.
And, finally, at lunch on day 2 Sam blurted out the answer. And there was great groaning all around. It was awesome. And it never got old hearing them chant, "Owah tagoo Siam" as they tried to figure it out. I'm giggling writing about it even now.

|Sasha's standards on marshmallow "cooking" (burning) were lower, but she enjoyed her s'mores with equal relish|
|Even WanYing got in on the action!|
|A rare peaceful moment in the herd. The camp host gave the kids Smokey Bear coloring books, which all of the kids (strangely) enjoyed.|

|The girls loved going to spigot to refill their water cups. It made for very soggy, very happy sisters.|
|Q: How do you sleep 6 in a single van?|
|A: Creatively! Daddy made a cot for Sasha (both of the girls are in the cot in this photo), WanYing sleeps on the bench seat, the boys sleep up top, and Mom and Dad sleep below.|
WanYing's first campout and first nights away from home were stunningly successful!
