We survived another camping trip

What a wild night it was Tuesday. We got out to our site around 4:30 p.m. and set up the tents and had the fire going in no time. My son cooked hotdogs for everyone and the sky started to get black. Not good. Then several trucks stopped to let us know that there was a violent storm on the way, but we weren't leaving after all that work.

We sent the kids and our dog to their tents and ran to ours just as the rain started. It was a bad storm with hard rain, thunder and lightning crashing. We had cards, junk food and "liquid refreshments" to keep us occupied all night, so the rain didn't bother us. The kids had my PSP with them and watched Spiderman 2, so they were content.

About 2 a.m., I heard sniffing outside the tent and Adonis started whining to let him in. I unzipped the tent and he came in wiggling and kissing. I told him to lie down and go to sleep at our feet, but the storm must have spooked him, because he had to be up beside me. Furr and mud everywhere! He's such a big baby.

Wednesday, we got up and ran into town to take a shower and get more ice. We fixed cold cut sandwiches for lunch and let the kids get out their craft kits.

It drizzled on and off, but we managed to get a fire going and cooked burgers for dinner. They were pretty good and the kids got to run around a bit before bed. My son had his bike in the truck, so they took turns riding it.

We broke camp early this morning and headed home. My daughter had to go to band practice or we would have stayed longer. Today is bright and sunny, so of course, we can't be out then.
