A little more from camping.

Good morning, it is Monday.

It is nice to have had two nights of good sleep in my own bed! The way the kids have been sleeping, they must agree as well. But I think they both would have been happy to stay an extra day or two. I think they were ready to come home when we did, but school shopping and the realization that school starts in just over a week has them wishing to make summer just a bit longer. Here are some more pics from camping:
The big rock is a favorite of all kids, not just ours. Of course, you would hope to get there when there wasn't a crowd.
Riding scooters around the big loop was fun too!
Rock collecting was a big part of the trip for the kids. At the beach or at the camp ground.
I actually enjoyed Lake Wenatchee more this time than times past. The weather wasn't crazy hot, mid 80's was perfect. It was too windy for Court to take the boat out, but the boat isn't really my thing so no loss on my part. And my kids are old enough to get along just fine without constant supervision, so taking time to kick back is much easier now. The change in the campsite campers was huge from mid week to weekend. We showed up Thursday, early enough to see the campsite filled with retired folks, huge big money campers/RV's and quiet nights. We stayed through the weekend enough to see many of the retired folk leave and the 20 somethings come in. Saturday night at 1:00 am was a stark reminder that 20 somethings party harder than the retired folks...and I am somewhere in the middle/older side. The campers with too much to drink who were puking and then thinking our tent was theirs was tons of fun at 1:00 am, but I must admit that listening to them was entertaining as well as reassuring. Reassuring that if the bears came (like the signs say), then we had a little buffer. Luckily the kids were able to sleep through all of it.

See you tomorrow.
