It's been a pretty crappy summer for our family between me growing a baby and Joe taking care of everything else. So, when I got the feeding tube out, Joe and I thought we'd squeeze in a last single bit of summer fun for our kids with a Labor Day camp out. We thought we'd manage one single night of camping at the Poxleitners' pond in Keuterville. We packed juice boxes, snacks and sandwiches because it was too dry to have a campfire...and besides, who wants to worry about babies falling in the campfire all weekend?
Joe did 99.9% of the packing, loading and planning. I put on the one pair of leggings that fit and told him I was ready to go. Lampie makes me super heated so I was pretty sure leggings, a Tshirt and a sweatshirt would suffice. Turns out it's really, really cold on the prairie and NO amount of pregnant can keep you warm at night.
|I didn't feel so hot, so I mainly sat in this chair and ate snacks.|
|ND climbed in and out of the back of the Pilot about 500 times.|
|Sam was EXCITED! TO! GO! CAMPING!|
|He picked up EVERY! STICK! AND! ROCK! in a 1/2 mile radius and hauled them back to our campsite. THIS IS A SHIELD!|
|Lampie and I napped for a while and tried to coax ND into a nap. She mainly just wanted to try out her cot and climb in and out...in and out...in and out.|
|THIS IS A STUMP! OR A TABLE! OR A JUMPING PLACE! I LOVE CAMPING!|
|Morning finally arrived, cold and bright. I stayed in bed while Joe made hot cocoa for the troops.|
|A happier ND in the daytime.|
