hi-ho the merry ...
ok ... maybe not totally merry ... just slightly merry ... when we weren't freezing our behinds off.
things i learned during our final camping trip this year ... edited to add ... now that i'm writing this ... it's proving to be less of an "i learned" and more of a ... these are things i love ...
1. it's nice to have a husband that slightly refused to follow his punishment of having the weather channel taken away for a few days after being crabby. (stella did it ... not me.) which allowed us to realize that it would be raining our first day and that it made more sense to stay in a hotel that first night and get to our campsite early the next day ... when the rain was gone.
... which was totally great ... except for the fact that we all slept like crap. (i HATE hotel beds.) i would have much preferred the rain slapping against the tent ...
... funny story though ... stella had to share a bed with boppa ... and in the middle of the night he managed to snort ... and stella slapped him and told him he scared her. she thought it was a bear.
like these silly little flowers growing out of a tree stump as the girls and i sat waiting for the men to rejoin us in the car after securing a campsite.
the. last. campsite. (we were just about as far north as we could go without requiring a passport.)
well ... at the very least a slight jaunt from my doorstep ... kind of home.
in my state ... kind of home.
some people love beaches.
some people love mountains.
some people love big cities.
i love green things. and water. and rocks.
but i also really love beaches, too. don't get me wrong. seashells and waves make me uber-happy too.
