Home from Camping Out

We are home from about a week away camping out on a relative’s farm a couple of states away. We took off with two coolers full of drinks and food, two tents (one ours, one borrowed), a mountain of bedding, and plenty of snacks and things for the kids to do on the long van ride. Unfortunately, I forgot to pack the bag that included three-fifths (3/5) of the clothing changes for us parents. It was sitting on our bed when we returned. I begged a trip to “civilization” when my clean clothes ran out and we were able to do a load of laundry in a nearby town’s laundromat. The real pleasure of the trip, however, was the evening before we headed back, when we checked into a hotel so we could all shower, swim, and sleep soundly on soft beds. The luxury!

I am not yet sophisticated enough to schedule posts and I am never far enough ahead to write them anyway! In between loads of laundry and unpacking, I will attempt to update you on happenings and get something interesting up for you to read. Stay tuned!

  1. The Hotel idea is a nice way to end the trip. Soft beds, soft towels and hot showers are cool.
