We spent this past weekend camping at with my sister and her boyfriend. Two other couples also joined them so there were a total of 8 adults, 6 kids and 1 dog. Had it been a nice weekend, it might have actually more fun but we still had fun. Everyone had campers but us so we stayed with my sister. I'm not a tent-kind of person. The theme for this past weekend is RAIN!! It rained Friday night pretty good with lots of lightning and thunder. Plus I was sleeping in a bunk bed the size of a coffin and was worried that the lightning was going to strike a tree and it would fall on me and hurt/kill me!! Seriously, I was afraid! Needless to say, I didn't get much sleep at all!! Saturday started out rainy, cloudy, windy and cold. YUCK!! The sun finally came out for awhile. Saturday night it rained and lightninged (is that a word?) but there was no thunder, thank goodness! However, I still didn't sleep very good. Sunday was rainy, cloudy, and cool. We got rained on many times as did the chairs. There were times we didn't have anything to sit on. We were all standing around. The kids were determined they were going to go swimming anyways - in the gloomy weather. As soon as they got in, it started raining pretty good so they all ran back to the campground while we stayed at the beach. Finally the kids decided to come back after it quit raining and went tubing and played on the water trampoline. We didn't get home until almost 10:00 last night!! And we all slept really good last night. Especially me because I think I got only 2 to 3 hours of sleep each night we were camping! I was exhausted! Everyone else stayed at the campground until today. Of course, when they woke up this morning it was dry and the sun was shining! Just in time for them to pack up and go home! :)
