We had an amazing birthday camping week! It ended with lightning, thunder, a flooded, muddy campsite and our tent wanting to blow away with us inside. Last night when it was storming, our cast iron skillet full of bacon caught on fire and burned 2 foot high in the air! Billy still ate it and said it was great. And Oliver's birthday cupcakes got an inch of rain as they cooked over the fire. I managed to salvage them and he loved them! Pretty moist ;) Then they were dubbed "fire cupcakes." So, today I didn't have to water my garden. I guess I didn't have to go home to water the garden yesterday morning after all!
We had so much fun with so many friends that came out to hang out, site around a fire, play at the beach, watch baby birds and camp with us. I am very thankful for all those friends and all the meals over a fire. Oliver basically got an entire week of playdates and even had two sleepovers in our tent. Great times and lots of stories! Here is to the start of a tradition! #ilovemyfamily #ourfriendsrock
