Budding Artist

Jordan is so amazing.  He has discovered the Paint program on my computer and re-creates images from DVD cases and images from the various internet sites he frequents.  I am loving his creativity.  Maybe it's time to invest in some paints and canvases to help his imagination run wild.

Cold Camping

Boy oh boy.  I was really looking forward to a nice relaxing camping experience.  Well, it didn't turn out that way.  It was raining on the drive up the mountain, but luckily it cleared enough to set up tents and sleeping arrangements.  The next day started out lovely, but soon turned into what I feared most would happen....SNOW!!!

It hailed/snowed for a good hour, and the kids, Loney, and I hung out in our tent.  Jordan and Melody even had a little nap.  I had decided after a cold night sleep, that I would clean up the van and let the kids sleep in the van, with either Loney or I sleeping in the front seat.  Loney took that upon himself, but I soon realized how cold of a night it was going to be..even with 2 down sleeping bags and a regular one around me, so I ended up in the van as well.

It wasn't all bad I suppose.  The kids were able to play and ride their scooters a little bit.  But next year will definitely be taking place later on in the summer.  I don't want a repeat of this year.  But at least I know I can set up and take down camp without the help of my more experienced parents.  Now to convince them to let me keep the Easy Up canopy.  Hmmm....

Getting Ready

Been working on getting things together for camping this weekend. I'm packing clothes today, going shopping for food tonight, and tomorrow will be spent packing the rest of the stuff. We head to Cedar Mountain on Friday morning to rain and snow!!! YIKES! I guess if worse comes to worse we just turn around and spend the weekend in a heated hotel room in Cedar.
