What a weekend!

We went to the Beach this weekend. Not just for the day but we actually went camping. We have had tents for years but had never actually used them. We, as well as a bunch of our friends and their children, all pitched our tents at a campground near the beach. We cooked hot dogs on a stick over a fire. We roasted marshmallows to make smores and then fell asleep on the hard ground listening to the waves. It would have been peaceful except for the hard earth under us and the kids waking up a few times in the night for what ever reasons. Next time we camp we will bring our air mattress.

Our kids had a great time playing with all the other kids that came with us. It was a bit difficult at times to keep them from burning themselves in the campfire or out of the poison oak that was near our campsite. By the time we were ready to head home we were all very tired. It took us all day Sunday to recoup from our one night camping trip.

We went camping this weekend too! However, we went to the mountains instead of the beach. Maybe we'll try the beach next time.

Camping on the beach! That sounds like such (sandy) fun!


PS I finally read An Egg is Quiet! This is the kind of book I'm going to write/illustrate when I grow up..
