Our Second Camping Trip







We did it again! We went camping on Friday night. It was a beautiful day to camp. The weather was so nice and we enjoyed the beautiful leaves, especially the maples. Robbie set up the tents and the kids played at the playground nearby. We were camping in a group area at the local state park. Our Church rented it for the night so we could all hang out. We got a nice campfire going and others showed up. We had yummy tinfoil dinners. Eating outside is always fun. We also had smores and hot chocolate. As long as you were by the fire you couldn't have asked for a better place to be. However, once you got ten feet from the fire, it started getting COLD. It was definitely a good thing to be wearing fuzzy footie pajamas on this campout! I had wisely invested in a double decker air mattress earlier in the day. I am thinking I wouldn't have survived without it. Natalie had insisted on the cute princess sleeping bag, which is probably best used inside the house. She got cold right away and ended up with dad in his bag. He didn't sleep much after that. I didn't sleep either because I was absolutely freezing!!!!! It got down to about 35 degrees up there in the mountains. BRRRRRR! I'd chosen mummy bags for the boys and they were grateful. They said they weren't cold at all, which is hard to believe! (It is probably a good thing we only took one vehicle. Because about 3am I am pretty sure I would have bolted if I'd had a way to leave!)
When we did get up our friends had set up an omelet buffet and we boiled them in ziplock bags. Really cool and they sure hit the spot.
So, now we have survived beach camping and mountain camping. Bring it on, the Goodsons can handle anything! :) (.....except the realllllly cold stuff!)

We DO have lots in common! As you can see by my list of race times, I'm far from fast too-seems like we could run together:) My rce philosophy is to finish upright, under my own power and to have enjoyed it enough to want to do it again. So far, so good on that! And I'm hooked on quilting-I'm seriously addicted to fabric...lol.
