Camping

Jody's parents arrived safely on Thursday. Friday morning we spent time getting stuff together for camping. Then after lunch Jody, his dad and my dad left to fish and hoped to find a campsite for Friday night. We planned on meeting them in the morning.

Then Saturday morning my mother-in-law, Judi, got a call from her sister-in-law that Jody's uncle had died. He has been battling cancer for several months and he died in his sleep. It was sad news, but not completely unexpected. So, Jerry and Judi had to leave to go back to Georgia.

We were so sad to see them leave! But the viewing and graveside funeral were right away.

But...
We had a GREAT time camping! The kids were amazing. Well behaved, slept good, played hard...

We ate frito pie (Jody's mom and I made the chile before hand), smores, sandwiches, hotdogs, and (thanks to Kristin!!!) the yummy campfire crescent rolls.

Jody got in the freezing cold pool with the kids, we played mini-golf, the guys fished, played on the playground, and we had some fabulous icecream at a local place (there is ALWAYS icecream on any trip with my mom).

I got some good pics with my parents camera and I think I'll be able to put them on tonight or in the morning. Check back.

Can't wait to do it again!!
