Went Camping :)

Well, it only took nearly 34 years but I finally spent my first night sleeping outside in a tent. :) Since the kids were a little iffy on whether or not they wanted to go camping we decided to do a one-night campout to let everyone see how they liked it before committing to multiple days. The tent was fun to put up, as are all projects in which the directions don't quite seem to be in the right order... ;) After getting it set up, we went fishing. The teenager caught a pinecone. That was all anyone caught. The fishing trip got a little scary when some jackass psycho came to the pier with his two small children and started shooting bullets into the water. It got even scarier when he GAVE THE GUN TO HIS LITTLE GIRL TO SHOOT. Yes, this craziness really happened. Back at the camp site, we had hot dogs and smores,tossed around a football and played Uno until it got dark. The campsite rules stated a quiet time from 11pm to 6am, but unfortunately we found this to not really be enforced. We found out the hard way. We're talking yelling, loud music, fireworks and anything else you can think of all the way until 3 or 4am. This meant precious little sleep, but all in all, I enjoyed it. The final verdict? I WANNA GO AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!! So does my youngest. My son liked the fishing but wasn't crazy about the rest. Teenager hated it. :)
