Singing Around the Campfire

Just got back from a soggy, yet fun, camping trip. It was my first tent camp in a very long time; we went with five other families and had good weather, except for the last day. It poured and poured, so we didn't get a chance to go to Assateaque Island (where the wild ponies roam), which was a bummer. So, I guess we'll just have to plan a trip back (this time in a cabin)! Taking down the tents we were soaked to the bone, but arrived back in Annapolis to sunny weather ...drying everything out on the lawn as I write. 

Mom got her own tent (I mean would you really want to share a tent with four snoring, smelly men?) Last night, we sat around the campfire, made s'mores and sang while my oldest played guitar (see picture above with middle bro in green). It was so nice and relaxing and just a beautiful night.

The kid's rented a go-kart (my little guy is in the white tee) and got to spend a little quality brother and friend time. 

Early this morning (before the major downpour), my husband took the boys fishing, while I packed and took a nice long run. (I love to run in the rain...seriously!)

Now, it's time to do my many loads of laundry, but it was well worth it! Summer has arrived. 
How have you welcomed summer?

How fun! I can't blame you for having your own tent. There are advantages to being the queen of the castle. :)

I hate camping...or at least the sleeping in a tent part. But you made it look fun!

I can see now why you didn't get any antiquing done this weekend, but it looks like you had a great time. Sorry you didn't get to see the ponies!
