Digging out again

from under the camping mess. We spent a wet, muddy, cold, yet super relaxing weekend at Chapman Dam with a group of other families. What's Memorial Day Weekend camping without rain and cold?It was extremely hard to get good scenery shots since it was so dreary. The sun came out on Saturday evening so I was able to get this shot. I would love to go back there when the weather is a bit nicer. There are a lot of neat places to explore.

The group site there is just perfect for a big group. Lots of room for the kiddos to run,
splash in mud puddles, (The ground dried pretty quickly when it rained, so the kids had to splash fast!!)

and throw a few games of Bocee Ball. (I can't remember if Bocee is spelled with one or two "c's", oh well.)

The weather wasn't exactly ideal, but we did rig up a tarp over the campfire so we could at least do our cooking, mist-free. Most of us have campers with heat, so we are pretty spoiled during the cold nights.
It felt wonderful to go to a friend's house to take a sauna after we got home. Sweat off all the mud and grime and came back home squeaky clean.

Time for me to continue digging thru my piles of laundry and muddy duds. Have a happy day!!
