camping scrapbook spring break 2010

when this is the very first picture you take on a vacation trip you should probably be leery of what is ahead.

but we are not that easily deterred.

no, we forge ahead instead!
despite an early visit from "Aunt Flo."
despite 35 degree raining cats and dogs weather.
despite catching a cold.
despite, despite, despite.

instead, we handled it like the king would have wanted.
with style.

and pie. the best pie ever.

thank goodness for pop-up campers and lots of warm blankets.

and for lots of books and games on hand.

and more blankets.

and fresh fruit so that we did not get scurvy.

and for heat. at the 4th store we tried.

and indoor activities.

like museums and flea markets.
and wal-mart.

and for a great camp-site that delivered firewood right to our door.

and so despite the rain, we carried on.

in style.

and we took walks to warm up.

and found the beauty in the land around us.

and we drank a lot of coffee.
thank goodness for the constant drip of the electric pot!

and we ate a lot of bacon.
because bacon makes everything better.

and then.
and then the sun came out.

and we caught fish.

and everything was shiny and beautiful.

and then it was time to clean-up and go home.

which was met with mixed emotions.

next year: beach camping.
