With the help of Isaac's Cub Scout fire starting skills, we even managed to get (and keep) a campfire going long enough to cook some hot dogs and marshmallows!
My pitiful attempts to keep us dry . . . would you believe it took me two full hours of standing in the rain to set that up? But then, that's with "help" . . .
Gideon and Blessing slept beautifully in the tent, and even though we all woke up in a puddle of rain water (seriously, we were soaked and soggy!) the kids seemed delighted with the whole adventure!
We camped right next to the lake.
I had packed sunscreen. Ha! Silly me!
Gideon and Blessing hung out in the van to avoid the downpour while Isaac and I broke camp. Which basically meant pulling the tent poles out of the tent, then balling the whole wet, miserable mess up into a heap in the back of the van and driving away. Then we went out for pizza. Yep. Mom and Me Camping Trip. Next time I'm going to check the weather report first!
