12 moms, 28 children. 2 nights.
I really love camping with these women. You know I love camping with my Cub Scout dads too, but there's something relaxing and easy about camping with a group of women. Everyone looks after each others children. Everyone takes care of each other. It's sort of a Sister Wife thing.
And this was really, REALLY a particularly laid back trip. As the only mom there with only one kid, I had a particularly easy load. We got there, pitched our tent, arranged our stuff and...I pulled out my 1 gallon Coleman jug of margaritas...
Yes, much time was spent sitting around the campfire with an adult beverage in hand. The kids ran wild like kids should do when camping, scampering on the rocks in the creek and catching tadpoles, while we moms sat around and enjoyed ourselves. Not a bad way to spend a couple of days.
It was all so easy. We had divvied up the meals, so all I really had to do was warm up the taco meat I'd precooked for tacos one night, and flip pancakes one morning. That's about it.
The most brilliant thing about this campground we went to is that it's attached to a small water park- just a lazy river and this giant water thingy...
...but enough to keep those kids happy and occupied.
Yes, I know, it's kind of a wimpy way to camp. Maybe cheating a little. Camping lite. But it allowed me to just sit there in a my swimsuit in a lounge chair for two days straight. Amazing.
There's really very little to report because the trip was so laid back. So I will attempt to sum it up with a pie chart...
Well that just about sums it up. Oh, and Jude had fun too. Did I forget to mention that? Silly me.
