After a day of looking at and test driving RV’s we decided to go camping at 4pm Monday afternoon. I made reservations on the way home and threw together camping gear while Matt and the boys got the boat ready and hooked up.
We had to stop and get our cooler from mom and dad and then drop the dog off at the kennel. Well it took a little longer than usual because the brakes on the boat trailer decided to act up again and lock up. Once we got to the Kennel they were smoking! It was insane. So 1 hour later we finally got on the road and had to stop at Walmart for some finishing touches. We got to the campground around 830ish and got to experience the joy of setting up our tent for the first time ever – and in the dark nonetheless. It all worked out good and we didn’t even argue.
It is obviously NOT an Insta tent but it worked for 2 nights
Since it was late we simply went to bed.
It was chilly in the morning and the boys enjoyed the warm fire
We had them randomly go an find firewood. They looked and looked and came back with some interesting pieces.
Then it was fishing time. We should remember that EVERY time we come here to go camping that there are NO fish in the lake. But we have fun being out on the water.
Then it was back to the campsite for some relaxing. we basically had this section of the campground to ourselves so the boys were able to run around and play in the road without little interruption. (Yeah you heard that right…I let my kids play in the road!)
Here they are taking turns racing each other – one on foot and one on the bike. For any of you who are familiar with the show StreetOutlaws they are re-enacting it. It is basically souped up drag racing. Jeremy called it “Just like street oulaws only weirder.” Gabe had his iPod set up at the finish line in case of photo finishes – of which there were a few! It was a blast to watch and listen to
All in all we had fun and got back home with less than 24 hours to get all ready to head out again to camp at the Little League World Series
