Camping Rundown

Well, we are back and we had a great time. It was really fun and, surprise.........relaxing! Basically the kids just played with each other the whole time, rode their bikes, played tag, put on a talent show, climbed trees, kid stuff! Everyone just helped out with each others kids when the mommy in need was unable to. It was great! We tried to go to the beach twice, but it was just so darn windy! We tried to build a shelter for the kids to be able to play in the sand, but it was just too much and after about 20 minutes we were ready to go!

We did get quite a bit of wildlife in the camp. The night before we got there they had a fox in camp. Then Tuesday there was a skunk in someones tent, thank goodness it didn't spray, eventually it just went away. Tuesday night I woke up to Jill screaming and what sounded like an animal ripping to shreds it's prey. It turned out to be two raccoons fighting in the trees over her tent. Wednesday we had a deer sighting while the kids did their talent show at the amphitheater.

We were supposed to stay 2 nights, but Big D came to me on Wednesday and said he threw up in the bathroom so I had him lay down and he just kept coughing, no more throw up though.... I didn't want to risk having to get up in the middle of the night and deal with that, and the cough was pretty persistent so I packed up pretty quick and we headed home.

Too bad because things were going so great! Here are some pictures of the trip

Moms have kids. Good mom's feed and clothe those kids. Great moms do all of that and teach their kids well. Cool moms do all of that and take their kids camping.

HEY! Good pixs! i am glad I stopped by and saw them. And for the record, I was not "screaming" I was defending my children :) from assuming attackers!!

I don't know who tbone is, but I couldn't agree more!!!
