Camp Oh-yeah-this-is-the-way-it-is-supposed-to-be!!

This weekend, we joined our friends (Scrapping and Baking Buddy’s family) for a couple days of doing NOTHING.  It was the best.

Camping used to be a horrible amount of work.  When the kids were little, it was so much work it almost wasn’t worth it.  We came back and slept for days.  Just look how tired I was…

Now, we go camping and while the kids run around, we sleep.

We kick back and sip coffee while the kids do the work.

We surf, we e-mail, we play games.

Some of us were double fistin’ it.

Campfires were always a nightmare back in the day.  We drew a line in the dirt and the kids were not allowed to go inside the line of terror.  S’mores?  Crap, I hated s’mores time.  Red hot pokers being held by pre-schoolers.  Tell me who thought it would be a good time?

Now, it is enjoyable.  Wanna S’more?  Get it yourself.  I am too busy being lazy.

This night, around the fire, we enjoyed some Wobblin’ and some Polka.  Yes, for real.  I danced.  The kids danced.  The video didn’t turn out.

We made two-headed monsters,

And “snow” angels.

And we laughed a lot.

And the kids had to drink a lot of pop just to keep up.

Camping these days is everything it is supposed to be.
