Jonathan and Benjamin were thrilled to be able to go on the ward campout ... and had talked about it all week ... I on the other hand - LOVE camping - but was not thrilled with the idea of no sleep - and Jonathan being gone all Saturday -- so I rode back with Emilie Nixon - who lives in our neighborhood and got a FULL NIGHT'S SLEEP!
Other than the fact that it was RAINING - and Jonathan left the tarp in the garage -and had to drive to the nearest Wal-mart to get another -- we had a GREAT evening. While Jonathan was "shopping" - Benjamin and I roasted hot dog and marshmellows and enjoyed visiting with friends in our ward.
When Jonathan got back - he and Benjamin QUICKLY set up the tent ... I headed home and they had a FUN night ... going to sleep about 11pm and Benjamin waking up at 4 am to go to the bathroom, and never going back to sleep! Sorry to all the "neighboring campers" who Benjamin probably woke up!
They had pancakes and bacon for breakfast - which Benjamin was so excited to tell me about. He is already asking if they are going camping again. I think Jonathan will take a "rest" from camping at least for AWHILE ... as he went to the Cannery in Atlanta and the to the UGA game ... and didn't get home until 12: 30 last night!
