The Joys of Camping

Ahhhhh. Back from a great long weekend of camping. Nothing better for our family then camping. Pure family time. Even though we come back tired and there is laundry to do and groceries to buy, we always come back refreshed.

This trip had an added bonus, some how set up by chance. Two campsites over were a couple who we knew yrs ago. They have three children around the same age as well. And the campsite between us was his aunt and uncle and their three older kids, the youngest, a 12 yr old boy, who was amazing with kids and loved to play with our boys.

We weren't sure until he tried, but Matthew was able to bike (with training wheels). We thought it had to be good for strength building on his foot. Using the muscles without the same weight on it. He loved the freedom. The boys biked all over that campground together.

So with lots of kids to play with, sunshine and bikes, the boys had a great time.

And now, it feels like we are finally back home. Now to tackle the chores... besides laundry and cleaning.

I need to set up twice a week p/t for Matthew.

Going to get hubby and I back on the South Beach Diet. Eating at RMH for three weeks added a few extra pounds that I would like to be rid of again.

Also going to get out in the yard and start working there. I need to cut down the old Clematis vines, add the new twinkle lighting to the lattice. Plant strawberries and flowers and maybe if there is time, make that bed I keep talking about and plant some vegetables.

It feels so good to be back in the swing of things.
