One tent, 2 blankets, an out house, cooking over the fire and outdoor grill. Yes, I did it. I went camping. I haven't been in quite a few years...about 6 I think. So be proud of me huh?! However did I mention that we had a huge air mattress, the outhouse had a flushing toilet, and Dad did all the cooking over the fire? Maybe my "roughing it" was so rough?! LOL. However I will still consider it "roughing it".
We went up to Bear Lake for Labor Day weekend with my family. We had so much fun. Ivy loved it. I suggested to Joe that next summer we just spend every weekend camping, then we wouldn't have to think of anything to entertain ourselves. Ivy can just play in the dirt and I'll just sit and relax, while he does whatever he wants. Sounded like a good idea to me.
It was fun watching Ivy play with the sand toys in the dirt, making us all such yummy food to eat. She also enjoyed sitting with Papa reading stories and following Grammy around everywhere. She really does love to be my mom's little side kick and as long as grammy can feed her and get her dressed and basically just do everything for her, she's in heaven!
We had a good time on the boat. Joe kneeboarded for his first time. I couldn't do anything water sport wise, so I just enjoyed watching everyone else have a good time. The water was freezing, so it's ok that I couldn't do much.
Oh- yah, well I did stay in the tent the entire weekend, even when it started to rain. I was tempted to sneak in the trailer to sleep but was determined to stay in the tent. Our things got a little wet, but the blankets were only wet on Joe's side; which had it been mine he'd have switched them so that my side was dry. He's very considerate like that.
Anyways, it was a very fun weekend and I'm glad we were able to go.
