Hi guys, How's it going?? Good here. We got back from camping yesterday and had a nice long day of recovery and laundry. It was 90+ degrees outside so the 5 loads I did dried in record time. I still have 2 comforters to wash and get out there today. I bought plastic clothespins this year and like them SO MUCH better than wood ones. It's taken clothesline love to levels I never thought possible.
Camping was awesome. The campground was clean and beautiful and so quiet during the weekdays that we were there. Our cabins were small but perfect, the A/C was powerful, and the mini fridge and microwave were much appreciated. (mostly the fridge...hard to keep a cooler cold enough for meat in 90+ temps) We ate delicious food (I made these bars with sunflower seeds & sunbutter and a delicious orange butter for on our pancakes Tuesday morning) and had big fires and swam a lot. The kids LOVED it there and would have liked to stay for many more days. I was fine coming home when we did but one more night would have been fun, too. We will definitely go back. The inflatables were AWESOME. I was worried about hoisting myself out of the water onto them but it wasn't as hard as I thought. :) (thanks, Jillian Michaels.) The lake was a typical lake and once you got past the slimy patches it was really nice. I guess it is spring-fed so you would hit these icy cold patches that felt so amazing. That lake made me really happy. Also, the pool was so warm and felt so good after the lake. Are you getting how happy the water made me? The temp may have had something to do with it. I would be standing in the hot sun pushing Nicky on the swing and just dream of getting in the water. Then we would. Nice.
Our cabin: (Our friends were in one right on the other side of the clothesline, just out of view)
"send them down" and she said, "don't lose them!" and I said, "I won't!" and then she sent them down and they shot right over my head and into the lake. HAHAHAHAHHAA! I found them, though, and told her later that before I did I saw our friendship pass before my eyes. :)
Nicky also fell asleep in my lap by the fire one night.
