Ward Campout


Last night was our ward campout. It was at Stephen F. Austin Campground. It took about 40 minutes to get there and it was a nice place. The weather was perfect for camping. We were completely comfortable (temperature wise) in our sleeping bags. The kids loved it! Trent and I had a good time.

I think the reason kid's love camping is because the don't do all the work to get ready and they just come home and resume normal life. Meanwhile, I am going to be doing laundry for days!!!!

We saw deer as we entered the park and then about 10:00 p.m. we saw racoons. These were bold racoons. We were all sitting around the campfire roasting marshmallows and one guy came within 5 feet of us. Trent, (being the brave father of the group) brazenly took two marshmallow skewers and clicked them together (think parent trap) trying to chase the racoon away. It gave all the kid's a good laugh and I am pretty sure we could hear the raccon chuckling in the tree above us.

The kids were in bed at 11:00 and up at 7:00. And I think maybe we slept a little in between. All the kids crashed on the way home (except Catherine) and Madelyn fell asleep tonight at 6:30. Julianne and Catherine are watching TV . . . but they are being very, very quiet (unusual for them) and I won't be surprised if they are asleep in there. . .
