At the family camp out at Pleasant Oaks Park, above, Yin Siu and her husband, Havery Leung, of Pleasant Hill, pitch their tent. Some 150 families registered for the overnight camping event July 14, where participants played games and activities, and enjoyed an evening campfire with s'mores and music, and a movie under the stars. At left, Carol Connolly of Pleasant Hill, and family friend Mateo Jimenez, 5, of San Ramon, spend some time in their tent before gathering for the communal activities. Mara Hill, 5, of Pleasant Hill, top, took some time to have her face painted by Helena Strand, 15, a volunteer with the Pleasant Hill Recreation and Park District, which sponsored the camp out.
