So, we went camping a month ago and I'm just now getting around to blogging about it! Not because I haven't wanted to, but I just haven't had the time to sit down and do it! Any way we went camping on July 8 and 9. We decided to stay only one night because we weren't sure how Shane was going to do in the great outdoors. Turns out he loves it! We got down to Pomme de Terre around 2:30 and decided to swim. Scott went ahead and found our campsite and got everything set up. We decided it was time to eat, so we had hot dogs over the campfire. Scott had to take Shane swimming again and Abby, Shawn, and Matthew played board games. When Scott and Shane got back we watched a scary movie on the dvd player. Abby even screamed out once during the movie, but it didn't seem to bother anyone. It took Shane a bit to go to sleep, but once he did he slept sound. The next morning we were all up by 6. Scott made us sausage and eggs over the camp fire. They tasted even better in the great outdoors! We were back down to the beach by 8 o'clock. We had it pretty much to ourselves - us and 3 other kids had the whole lake to ourselves. We swam until we got hungry, then went back to the campsite to eat and pack up and go home. We learned that Shane can swim and that he can float like a cork. Matthew loved to run into the water like a hottie from Baywatch, and Abby was just delighted to have Shawn along on the trip. It was so beautiful and quiet at the lake. It was so great to just get away for a while. I am sure that we will try to do more camping next summer - it was just too much fun!
