Camping on Citico Creek
Helloooooooo! Is anybody out there??? Well, hello again! Lots of life has been happening since I posted over a year ago. I may try to post some "catch-up" pictures on here another day...but then again, life hasn't gotten any less busy or demanding since then, so I may not. We'll see. But my biggest blog fan (aka~ husband) has told me repeatedly how much he misses reading my posts and seeing our pictures, so I am making an effort to post for him.
The kids are bigger now, of course. I took them camping this week by myself, since Rodrigo had to work and couldn't get away from that and someone needed to be at home to care for our animals. Violet turned 2 while we were camping. She's such a sweet, funny, little person; and noisy, very, very noisy!
I bought the kids a couple of packages of glow necklaces and they put on a light show for me after dark. We had the campground completely to ourselves, which was really nice, since I didn't have to worry about our being too noisy or up too early for anyone else! We got up sometime just after 6 in the morning and while I made coffee on the camp stove Matthew and Ethan started the fire back up to help us thaw out! After breakfast we went for a walk down by the creek. It was still very early with the sun just peaking over the edge of the mountain and the mist rising off of the water. We walked around for a few hours until everyone started to feel hungry again and we wandered back to camp for an early lunch. Later we packed up and headed home. It was a lot of fun, but I was very happy to back in my own warm bed last night! :-)
