We spent a couple of wonderful days with six of our grandchildren. My daughter and her husband were with us. They brought their four kids and Greg and I brought two other granddaughters from another daughter. The cousins had so much fun together. Some of the kids are teenagers now. I didn't realize that I liked kids that age so much. I guess it was more stressful when our daughters were teens, but the grandchildren are just delightful. I had fun using my new 50 f1.8 and 105 f2.8 macro lens. I've shot so much on zoom lenses lately that I had forgotten how much fun prime lens shooting can be.

#1 On a hike. I used my D5600 here. It had a polarizer on the kit lens. Not ideal. But I love the setting so I'm sharing this not so great image quality wise photo.

I have lots more but I've probably more than worn out my welcome with these. I love doing candid shots of the kids doing their activities. I let me daughter do most of the formal posed shots.
 
Isn't it astonishing how quickly they grow up? Most of us here can remember seeing photos of these kids when they were babies or toddlers, and now look at them! What a fun time for all you, going camping together and having the joy of family time together. As others have said, these are memories which the kids will always have and cherish, as do you. Your great photos of these occasions provide the icing on the cake, the cherry on the top of the ice cream sundae!
