Off to Camp!

We're going off the grid for a week at Boy Scout Camp. But first, a Birthday Shout Out to my cousin John.

We reconnected last summer at Mom's funeral and have been occasional e-mailers since then. It's been cool learning how he's been doing, we'd been out of touch for probably close to 35 years. Here's to you John, hope your Birthday is picture perfect!

Back to our camping saga, we're pretty well packed up. I have had to convince the boys that a shower involves soap and shampoo, not just getting rinsed off and thus packing those items is required. Not sure how that's going to go, like will they really use them? But at least I tried and Holly heard me.

The camp dining hall was destroyed over the winter, it collapsed under a tremendous amount of snow, and so we're not sure what to expect for meals. We've heard that they contracted with another camp for meals and that they have put up a large tent. It will be interesting, probably not as interesting as Chinese food, but interesting in a camp/institutional food sense.

Ian's taking his camera and I'll have mine, so we should have some awesome shots when we get back. It is a beautiful campground and you're pretty much out and about from sun up to sun down, so lots of chances.

They're calling for rain, but that's OK, it's better than going to work. I really need the break.

Have a great day and a great week and Happy 4th of July!
