Yep, we are hooked. On camping. We left out Friday afternoon on our first outing with our new camper. The boys were so excited, you would think we were going to Walt Disney World! We stayed at Jellystone Park right outside of Memphis. This park is a newer one and was a great starter camp for us. With everything we needed being right there on our site, it couldn't get much easier! The boys met two little friends right away with several more to add over the course of the weekend. They would swing for a little, play pirates, slide, play in the sand, ride scooters, and then start all over again. We were camped out right across from the playground so this was icing on the cake! Eddie and I had time to just sit and talk, about the kids, God, the Bible, and just be silly together while the boys had a ball.
I can tell you that I was so concerned when we bought the camper because I thought we would never use it. Mainly because I thought I would be the party pooper! I can tell you now that I am already checking out other campsites. Cannot wait! Yes, me, the one that dreaded it, is hooked! I have always heard my mom and dad tell stories of them camping in their camper with my two older brothers and the fun they all had, riding bikes, fishing, and just being together as a family, which is exactly what we did too.
Saturday night, against Sam's wishes because he didn't want to leave the park, we went to see Disney on Ice at the FedExForum. I am so disappointed because they would not let me take my camera in! They told me the cameras have to be no bigger than just the regular camera with no large lens, for the threat of people selling the pictures of the show. Ha! They must not have seen my pics. But, oh well. I had time to enjoy the show with my two sweeties and my main man and not be stuck behind a camera hoping to get some great shots. And it was a great show!
So, that makes for one busy weekend. And one tired mama that is still trying to catch up!
Really wanting to go back out!
