Um, yeah right! I wish! No such luck. I may have gone to Bora Bora on my imaginary vacation, but in real life, we went camping. You see, E, has been begging to go camping since before Christmas. I'm not even sure where she got the idea to go camping.
When I was growing up, we went camping at the lake all the time, including vacations and lots of weekends. When I was really young, we went in my grandparents motorhome. We also did some tent camping, but when I was around twelve, my parents got a used bumper pull camper. It looked something like this
It was a used Prowler. It was old but we loved it. We took that thing everywhere, including the beach in Florida. So, having been raised in motorhomes and campers, of course my ideal camping trip would look something like this
but in reality, we borrowed a tent from my parents.
C must have snapped this picture. Hmmm. They didn't tell me some fat chick came and helped Hubby put up the tent. How sweet of her.
The kids had a great time walking down the street to go to the bathroom.
Can you see the joy in C's face? Fun times!
This is our view from our campsite.
This is the beautiful Lake Ouachita (Wash-eh-tah), right down the hill from our campsite.
Inside the tent, we were wall to wall beds. After we fought with our air mattresses for a little while, we finally fell asleep around midnight. We fell asleep with the breeze blowing through the tent, the sounds of the leaves blowing in the trees. Then, CRASH! Hubby got up to go check out the noise to find two raccoons playing in our trash can. He scared them away and put a piece of firewood on top of the trash can lid and we went back to bed. Ahhh, we climbed back on to our air mattress, covered up with the sheet and drifted off again. CRASH! Durn coons! This time we just let them be. So, after a deflating mattress and a fun game of musical beds, we finally got to sleep around 2:30. Good times.
I wonder how long it will be before we camp again. Do you like to camp?
