What a Weekend! Part 1

Hey. I kinda slipped out of here Friday without doing an Online Craft Club post. Sorry ’bout that. Time got away from me, and I had to leave for the Boy Scout camping trip. Oh, man, we had so much fun! We rode up Friday afternoon, and pitched our tent, and then we just hiked and hung out for a while. We had hot dogs with some of our friends for supper, and then there was a campfire, and then bed. I was thrilled that the site had a cabin, so we had toilets, and also showers for those who didn’t realize that bugs are attracted to folks who smell like flowers.

Here are Spidey and Stuntman with some other boys from our pack.

Spidey holding a stick of bamboo. There was a man there who was making whistles from the bamboo. He has a tremendously huge beard, and I got a good picture of him and Spidey, and then I neglected to ask him if it was ok to put it on the internets. I truly suck, sorry.

On Saturday, I hung with Spidey while Stuntman went with our friends, since their son is in the same den. We went to several stations, and had a grand time learning about space. And then it rained. It did not rain long, but it did rain hard. It rained vehemently and emphatically.

If you look closely, you can see the rain coming down like this ///////.

See how wet Spidey is?

And our tent stayed dry! We left anyway, though, not because of that shower, but because thunderstorms were predicted for overnight, and while I can live with wet, thunder and lightning are a whole different level of weather; I want a real roof! The boys and I came home and camped in the living room, complete with flashlights to make our way to the bathrooms, though we did watch four episodes of Quantum Leap before we passed out in the dark.

Tomorrow, I will post about the rest of the weekend. Wednesday, I think we’ll start another giveaway. And then that will put us back on track for cooking and crafting on Thursday and Friday.
