After the post that I wrote on Friday, Funny Girl and I decided that we still wanted to go camping and so we decided to to go to a campground that was near my house.
We found a family campground that was only 10 minutes from my house and went there with two carloads full of camping gear.
My friend Rico decided to come with us the first night so it was just me, Funny Girl, Rico, Devon and his friend Logan. We arrived quite late as we hadn't planned to do the "real" camping thing.Rico and Funny Girl pitched the tents while I put together the gas grill that Rico had brought.
The kids went to the park and played until it was time to come back to the campsite. We were in a "primitive" campsite that had no water, electric or sewer but we were right across the road from the office and bathrooms so we had easy access to everything that we needed.
The first day I got up at 7:30 with the kids and by 9:00 everyone was up and about. Because we had gotten a late start we hadn't really organized the campsite the night before so we did that and then Funny Girl and I drove back to my house to pick up the boy's bikes so that they could ride around the campground. I had also forgotten ketchup and mustard so we grabbed those as well.
The campground had a swimming pool so we took the boys swimming and took a bit of a dip ourselves.
More people showed up the next afternoon and that night we had about nine or ten adults there just having a great time and sitting around the campfire talking and having a few drinks.
I fell out around 1:30 and within an hour everyone else but two people were in bed. Around 4:30 Funny Girl was not feeling good so she decided to head home.
I got up the next morning and came out of my tent and it looked like a bomb had exploded all over our campsite. Cups, cans and bottles everywhere. I spend the next 30 minutes just picking up the stuff that was strewn all over and then people started to stumble out of their beds.
We started to break down the site and make breakfast. The kids went swimming one more time and we left around 1:00 that afternoon.
We had a great time but Devon and I were so tired and Devon was NOT feeling good this morning so we both stayed home.
