Gone Playing Again!!

OK!
Back from camping and off again for the big school shopping and last of summer 'hurrah' city trip! Lots to share, but I gotta go!

Here are some quick highlights from our first ever Sexton Family Camp Trip:

Camping was a blast... cold, but fun!
Yes, lots of Yahoos... two shots were fired in the 'no firearms allowed' campground at Olive Lake, oh, about 2 am.. The Nervous Nellie in me was wondering was it because of a Bear? Or were the Yahoos just being Yahoos? Visons of the Far Side comic where the bears are checking out the 'sandwiches' at the campground (people in sleeping bags) kept flashing in my mind.. I never slept (I am sure)... all four of us were in the tent together, and it was very cozy! Good thing cause it was dang cold! Brr!!! Jake and Dick both talk in their sleep... Dick also snores, and we had 'visitors' of the cloved foot kind! Jake yelled in his sleep and then a bunch of critters 'stampeeded' off! Oh joy, was I freaking out....

We got skunked fishing, at Crawfish Lake, and Jake fell in into the lake while navigating a fallen log...this was 1 1/2 miles from our vehicle.. did I mention it was a cold day? Poor little guy. I made him get nekid so I could wring out his clothes... I gave him my sweatshirt to wear, and my extra socks (seems he didn't have his emergency pair in his backpack)... he had to hike back in wet 'choose', undies, and 'pantaloonies'...(language is in memory of my deceased Grandpa Leonard - who said 'choose' for shoes, and 'pantaloonies' for pants..)...

OK! Gotta go! Thanks for visiting and I will post photos and 'more' when we return 'later'!

p.s. We return Thursday, but that is Dick's birthday... Most likely won't post till Friday...
