Camping

So the last two weeks we have stayed super busy! This past weekend we went to Palo Dura Canyon for a camping trip! I checked the weather on Wednesday and it was supposed to be 80 degrees. So we woke up early Saturday morning and went on our little adventure! Once we got there we set up the tent and then set out on an adventure to find the hole rock. Once we found it and climbed a couple more rocks/hills we went into Canyon to get some things that we forgot. There Wal-Mart was super hard to find, luckily the friendly folks at Braums gave us directions. My lime sherbet was super yummy...it's my fave! Back at the campsite we went on another adventure behind the tent, but it wound up at the road, so it was no fun! As it got closer to dark we cooked hotdogs over the Coleman stove, we couldn't use a fire due to the burn ban. The showers that night were an experience. JP had said that he had seen a scorpion in the bathroom earlier. When I turned on the water a huge scorpion came up out of the drain...then I picked up my towel to move it and there was another one that was even bigger!! Needless to say that was one of the quickest showers I have ever had, I didn't want to stink, but then again I didn't want to be stung. Since we didn't have electricity at our site I used the outside plug in for the big campers, while JP watched the turkeys. The weather that night blew us away...literally! JP was sure it got down to 38 good thing his sleeping bag was made to keep you warm in weather that was 40 degrees. I had brought a blanket...JP said that it would make up for the 2 degrees that the sleeping bag didn't cover....HAHA YEAH RIGHT! We had brought our blow up mattress and it flattened out by the end of the night. It was super cold!!! The next morning we got up to go on a 6.5 mile hike/walk. I realized I'm not in any shape at all! JP had to stop and wait on me most o the way, but I didn't stop. He ended up climbing to the Lighthouse, I wasn't about to climb that final STEEP point. It was a great trip! We really had a good time, definitely something I would want to do again! Anyone want to join us???

Sounds like you had a good time. What a neat thing to do. I wish Michael liked to camp but he HAS to have his TV.

Have a wonderful week!!
