I wussed out this year (yes, Telisha at 32 weeks pregnant, pathetic, I know) because I knew that Taryn would not sleep, (she's a terrible camping sleeper) and if she didn't sleep, then I wouldn't sleep and if I didn't sleep, NO ONE was going to be happy. :) I was sad to miss out on all the fun memories they made, but I was not sad to miss out on Revree being awake for 4 hours during the middle of the night. Bree decided that the place must be cursed, and I agree!
Dutch oven hobo dinner! I am very sad that I missed out on this. mmmm, my favorite...
Here they are finding all sorts of silly games to play while they warmed up in the wood-stove heated cabin at night.
It gets so hot up in the loft area at night with the stove going, that the kids can hardly sleep in their 0 degree bags we got them. Guess we better go try them out in some real weather.
Sadly, this was the only snow that they had up there to sled on. It was cold though, so this hill was still nice and slippery with ice, so sled they did. They only broke 2 sleds doing it...
They said they had a lot of fun checking out how thick the ice on the pond was. I'm glad no one was dumb enough to try and cross it. They enjoyed "skipping" rocks and footballs across it instead. It took a couple of tries, but Nate finally broke it with a big rock. I'm sure the boys were impressed. We want to make this camping trip a yearly tradition during the Christmas break, but with the lack of snow that early in the year and the lack of sleep everyone seems to get, we'll see what happens next year.
