Saturday afternoon we got an awesome surprise when friends (who are really like family) came up for a spontaneous camping trip in our backyard. We really thought they were joking because in the past camping hasn't been their thing. Then we realized that they were serious and we got busy planning for a camping trip....in the backyard. Actually we didn't really have to do anything except pull the tent off the shelf for them. They did all the work. We did have smores around the campfire along with a not so quiet game of charades and then finished with a very silly story before their kids settled into the tent and our kids settled into their beds :) The good news is that I think they will camp again. Because we do own a camping store and we love to camp, we helped them pick out some necessary items (like sleep pads) that would make their trips to the mountains that much more enjoyable.
On Sunday morning we all headed out for a bike ride. It was a gorgeous morning for a ride. Aside from Paige going out of control and riding off the side of the trail down into the trees and Sam and Alice colliding (which resulted in Sam cutting up his hand) we had a very nice morning :) We had a yummy pizza lunch and then finished the day up with frozen yogurt, beer for the mommas and live music. It could not have been a nicer day.
Thanks Youngs for such a great visit!!!
