4pm~ Walk through the woods with Josh and the boys. Perfect weather!
4:30pm~Stop for wading in the river. Nothing like baby bottoms!
7:00pm~Hobo dinners and smores around the fire. I think every boy loves fire!
9pm~Boys in the tent for bed. I smile as I listen to the boys talking. Zachary tells little brother, " Don't worry. God did not create monsters. Well, maybe He created them, but they are extinct now."
10pm~ Josh and I go to bed.
10:02 pm ~ I'm excited that my hair, which had been up in a clip all day and is now down, still smells like my fruity shampoo. :)
10:21pm~ Now sharing my pillow with Zachary. Wondering why we decided not to bring the boy's pillows.
10:56pm~ Hear the man in the tent across the campground talking about a chupacabra.
10:59pm~ Wonder if the chupacabra is Big Foot's pet.
11:16pm~ Josh swipes my fruity hair out of his face.
12:01pm~ Hear a donkey hee-hawing in the woods. (I'm not kidding!)
12:06pm~ Hear a gun shot in the woods (still not kidding!)
1:12am~ Plan on designing a terry cloth robe jumpsuit.
1:17am~ Reconsider the robe jumpsuit idea.
1:25am~ Forgot how cold it gets at night.
1:32am~ Relieved to see that the sun is beginning to come up.
1:57am~ Disappointed to see that the sun is not coming up.
2:33am~ Zachary swipes my fruity hair out of his face.
2:47am~ Wonder if it is just a coincidence that after the gunshot I never heard the donkey again.
3:41am~ Start to worry that Lucas might me hypothermic.
4:00am~ Wonder why no one commented on how good mom's hair smelled.
4:51am~ Hear a creature creeping around outside the tent.
5:07am~ Put Lucas in the sleeping bag with me. Now sharing my pillow with 2 boys.
5:30am~ A little sleep despite the sore hips and sleeping arms.
8:30am~ Breakfast tacos cooked on the fire and one final hike.
10:30am~ Thank goodness we are home. It was fun for a change. Looking forward to the next camping trip when the boys go and I get to stay home and sew all weekend! :)
