Hubby and I finally took off to go camping. It was a very much needed break from "life."
While camping the first night, my youngest daughter cut this comic from the paper we were reading.
We all got a good chuckle out of it....."sounds just like you Mom," the kids said.
Day 1 of teaching the younger two to fish. This wasn't the best location either.
Every meal was cooked over the campfire, and we loved it.
One morning this cardinal stopped by to sing to us. He was up on a very tall tree, but in between me and the campfire smoke. I was disappointed in the clarity of my photos, but was happy to see it, and so was my 10 year-old.
Second day of teaching the girls to fish. We located a better spot to fish.
Our 13 year-old daughter holding her first fish caught by herself.
Our 10 year-old daughter holding a stick that she hooked. We tried to stay longer so she could catch her first fish, but we were really getting hungry. We'll have to take her fishing again.
We also hiked and put new wild flowers in our wild flower press. This one was a new one. According to the book we took along, is Jerusalem Artichoke. There is a story behind this one, but I'll share that another day. It's very tall too. Some were over 6 feet tall.
We read books and magazines, and played games by the campfire.
I snapped this photo, and later realized it looks like an animal trying to get out of the water.
We packed up, only to head home and wash all the laundry. We came home with some very funny stories to remember. I still cannot tell people the story about the camper, without cracking up laughing. I'll share that in tomorrow's post. I think I made this one way too long for readers.
