Camping Trip

We went on our first camping trip this weekend despite the threat of high winds, rain, hail, and even tornadoes - none of which we experienced. We had a great time and didn't experience any problems with putting up the tent or starting the fire. In fact, it was so much fun that we plan to do it again, and maybe for 2 nights next time!

Our campsite was right on the lake. We also had our choice of many wooded campsites that we might try out next time. I got a little sunburnt - didn't even think about bringing sunscreen.

Dinner consisted of brats, corn on the cob, and chips. Very delish. We, of course, had s'mores and marshmallows for dessert. Breakfast was very healthy - cake donuts. I think we will take the camp stove next time for some pancakes and eggs.

The people one campsite over caught huge fish. So, Richard and I tried to catch some too. No such luck. Fish would be jumping right next to our line, but they had no interest.

No matter how primitive our surroundings, we still made sure we brushed. It was a great trip to relax and get away.

Other weekend events:

We saw Bo Pelini at Scheels on Friday night. He walked right by us!

Two dumpsters got loose at our apartment complex during a very high wind storm. They hit 6 cars, including the cars directly next to ours, and completely smashed the side of a pick-up in our parking lot. Crazy.

Lunch with the Clabaugh Family on Monday and dinner with friends on Monday night.

I like your teeth brushing, way to keep the priorities in check. :) I did think "cake donuts?? for a dentist family???" :) That's neat you guys like camping together... I couldn't do it... for the day maybe but I need that shower and cozy bed before I can sleep!
