camp out

During Sam's recent 2 week break we broke out the tent and went camping with our friends. I actually "roughed it", meaning I slept in a sleeping bag on the ground- no air mattress! Based on the half hour of sleep I got all night, next time there will indeed be an air mattress involved. We roasted weenies, s'mores and stayed up talking with good friends until all our fire wood burned out. There was only minor trauma when something fell out of a tree while we chatted around the fire. It was pitch black and it scared the crap out of me for the rest of the night. I swear it was a bear cub. Maybe camping just isn't for me, UNLESS it's at a beach or somewhere without wild carnivores. In the morning Katie made us a delicious breakfast, if you don't count the poisoned bacon. She is actually an excellent cook, and we're so glad they braved the wilderness with us.

I was too scared of bears to sleep when we went camping too. We heard russling the whole time we were around the campfire so I refused to sleep outside.

You are too nice. I will need to brush up on my dutch oven skills for next time.

How FUN!!!!! I had the worst nightmare of my life last night. We were in a cabin, and there was a bear that busted in and was eating us. It was like we were in a movie and I knew what was going to happen so I knew the bear was coming and he was going to kill us. I was very relieved to wake up.
