(The family packing up and ready to come home and bathe!)
Friday night was the Ward Campout at our church. We decided to brave it out and pack up the tent, food and the kiddos. They have been excited and counting down the days since we told them. We had tons of fun, the kids LOVED roasting marshmellows....well they loved EATING them atleast. I hadn't had a roasted marshmellow in forever and to tell you the truth, THEY WERE AWESOME!!! The kids ran themselves raggid until bedtime and when it was time to turn in they were so tired, they fell asleep immediately. They did great....but I was unprepared! I WAS FREEZING all night. I didn't sleep more than a few hours...not because the kids were up, but because I kept fretting that they were cold, or Jake was cold and of course I was cold. I took a blanket to sleep with and gave it to Jake because I only brought him two small ones. Don't ask me what I was thinking, I think I got a little too excited to go. The poor people next to us, their little girl kept screaming ALL NIGHT LONG! They finally gave up at 4 am and got up! We got up, ate breakfast and went for a little walk to a nearby pond. All was going well, until there were wasps EVERYWHERE. They kept landing on Zach and Jon swatted them away and decided we better leave before we got stung. Of course, when do kids listen? We turn around to leave and Hannah starts screaming bloody murder. Yup! Her first bee sting..or wasp sting. Put some medicine and a bandaid and all is well. We packed up and came home and we are EXHAUSTED but had so much fun. Here are a few pics! Enjoy!
