Weekend Round Up...part one

Please excuse my blog! It had been experiencing some technical difficulties. I am currently trying to figure out what is going on.

Now onto my weekend...

Saturday morning we woke up bright and early, packed the car, fought a little, packed the car some more, then headed up to Sugarloaf campground in the White Mountain National Forest. The ride up was HELL as Lani cried pretty much the whole ride up. UGH!! So, Wesley gave up his DS and I gave her a cookie to Lani quiet. It worked for a while but eventually I had to climb into the backseat with her.

We arrived at the campground and settled ourselves in. Michael and Wesley went on a hike with Melissa, Joel, and Sarah. Lani and I stayed back since we didn't pack her hiking back pack. I attempted to put her down for a nap but that didn't work. Instead we just walked around the camp and explored.

The rest of the afternoon was spent dancing, snacking, eating dinner, playing, and going for walks. It was pretty chilly up in the mountains so I wasn't in the mood to do much except sit by the fire.

Later in the evening we headed out to the Mount Washington Hotel to watch some fire works. You can see Mt. Washington with snow to the right of the hotel.

When we got back I put Lani to bed in the camper and attempted to hang out by the fire. It was just too COLD! Even by the fire we were shivering.

It was FREEZING all night. I didn't get too much sleep because I was constantly checking on Lani who was sleeping between Michael and I. I bundled her and Wesley up so they were fine but I couldn't help but worry. I woke up feeling pretty refreshed though.

We have thunderstorms getting ready to hit us so I will post part two soon.

I've been camping in the freezing cold before and I HATE it. Once, we gave up half way thru th enight and packed up and went home. Of course, the campground was about a mile from our house, so no biggie.

Looks like a great time though and I know your kids will look back on those camping trips with great fondness.

But campfires & cold don't compute for me this time of year. :)
