official camp-out

Friday arrived with much anticipation from the girls because they knew that we would be camping out that night. Mike got home early enough to get us all packed up and ready to go around 4:30 p.m. However, we were the first to arrive at camp other than the activities coordinator. The other families didn’t arrive until around 6:30 p.m. Out of the 4 total families to participate our family was the only one to actually cook our own food on the camp stove. The menu consisted of taco salad in a bag which the girls loved to help mix up. Not a single morsel was left over, and we were all well-fed. After cleaning up dinner everyone enjoyed s’mores.

One family was clever enough to bring along sparklers for the kids. Here is Mike trying to write his name.

Around 5 a.m. it did start to rain. The showers were not heavy and there was no lightening, so we thought we’d be o.k. for the night. However, the next morning we discovered that the girls did get quite wet during their slumber. They didn’t wake up though or seem to be bothered by it.

When we were taking the rain fly off the tent we discovered these fellows hanging out on our tent.

Mike is so proud of his efforts.
