I know, I’m a blogging slacker

So I just realized it has been like over a week since I have last updated you on all the happenings.

Since we have talked last I have gone camping and suffered the consequences of some REALLY hungry and smart raccoons, got my hair cut SUPER short – well for me and have really increased my tan-ness.

I took Bailey camping with my friend Jenny and her kids to a lake about an hour northish of where we live.  I’ve camped there before and really like the campground.  I did, however, misread the map when I booked out spot and we were RIDICULOUSLY far from the bathroom.  Like we drove the car there- except when we really had to go and went outside, in nature – which I am no good at.

The first night we had a fire – relaxed and finally went to bed.  We made sure we turned the chairs upside down and everything.  We forgot a bag of candy, marshmallows and Ruffles outside.  When I came out of the tent in the morning, I was greeted by sweet pink candy wrappers- EVERYWHERE!!  See the carnage below:

We cleaned up the mess, ate some breakfast and started our day.  Our friend Lori came and spent the day with us and after a sweet campfire lunch of hot dogs, brats, potatoes and green beans, we all got on our swimming gear and headed to the lake.  The kids swam while the grown up put their chairs at the edge of the lake and enjoyed the cooling effects of keeping your feet in water.  One even enjoyed the cooling effects of dumping your chair backwards into the lake.  ( Not me!!)

We spent many hours there and after snacks of melted cheese with crackers and chips and dips, we pretty much decided we were pooped and called it a night.  All 5 of us headed into the tent for quiet time.  2 of the kids watched movies on a tablet, and the rest of us read.  Once it was dark out, we heard some scuffling outside – so Bailey opens the tent window, shines his flashlight out and sure enough, there were raccoons outside and we were like – whatever, we put everything away tonight.  In the morning we found an empty can of cheese dip, an empty half gallon almond milk container and the cooler was missing hot dogs and brats.  Those little imps went into the cooler, stole all the meat and the almond milk and left behind soda in gross, muddy water.  I couldn’t believe it, but as many people pointed out to me, they can get into a garbage can, what makes you think a cooler would be any different.  Needless to say, I have learned my lesson about the raccoons and will never trust a forest creature again.
