Saturday we headed east to a camping fundraiser where all the proceeds went to help with medical bills for a 2-year-old battling leukemia. We had a great time, including when a terrible storm rolled in at 5:30pm, just as dinner was being served. We had about 10 people under our canopy with the boys and we still got wet. It was a torrential downpour with hail! It got to the point where it was just funny and since we were soaked and everything was muddy, we were going to enjoy it.
The boys had a great time. Running around, playing baseball, watching fireworks, and sleeping outside--it all adds up to a fun experience. Lou and Ben's bed was dry, but the same could not be said for Mommy, Daddy, and Charlie. The three of us slept on one sleeping bag, one sheet, and one pillow. And they were all a little damp! Oh well, it was only for one night. But you can believe that come August we'll be better prepared for our next camping trip!
