A birthday and More Camping
Monday, July 26, 2010
My son just turned 9 years old on Thursday. We had a quiet family party at home.
Check out his 'drum' cake!
Then this weekend we went cub scout family camping at Whitewater Lake, which is about 35 minutes from our house. On Saturday, the families set up camp, then we all split up for a few hours to have some free time. Some went fishing and others went swimming at the beach. The park had a theme of Christmas Weekend, so we stopped in to see 'Santa' who was obviously Santa's helper: a DNR employee who was commissioned to play the part. My birthday boy just recieved several presents, so he had no idea what to wish for Christmas!
Saturday evening we stayed up late. The adults tended our campfire while the cub scouts ran around with glow sticks, and the teen girls hung out chatting about anything and everything. Sunday we hiked in the extreme heat and humidity for 2 miles through trees and up and down hills by the lake.
We had fun camping together despite the miserable heat and then the rainstorm Saturday night. Everyone agreed that the trip was a blast and when can we do this again???
