(Home sweet home)
(Sweet Princess Leia didn't know what to think.)
Thursday afternoon was when we arrived at our campsite. By the time we had gotten everything set up it was dinner time. Jeremy brought our mini grill and we ate grilled chicken legs. The amazing planner I am completely forgot to pack the sides that went with the grilled chicken, so we ate chips (I know...I'm awesome). Live and learn. This was actually the first year we brought down our own food and I now know what to pack for next year.
Friday morning we had eggs and bacon, because (like an idiot) I forgot to grab the bacon cheddar brat burgers out of the freezer at home. The bacon and eggs were delicious though and we spent the rest of the day swimming and fishing in the river. For lunch we had hotdogs and chips. For dinner we had steaks, corn on the cob and fish that Jeremy caught out of the river. So yummy.
Friday night, Lucas fell backwards into the fire pit and burned his hand. It was just the hot coals and ash, but he still got some pretty bad blisters. Jeremy had called it Thursday night. We kept telling him to stay away from the fire, but that boy isn't afraid of anything and still isn't.
Saturday morning we had potatoes, sausage, and bacon foil packets that I had made on Wednesday. We just warmed them up on the grill, then headed down to the river. We spent the whole day floating on a raft (except Jeremy, the river was so low that he walked and pushed us the whole way).

We went home Sunday morning. Leia passed out on the couch. She was our campsite guard dog all weekend and I don't think she slept more than a couple of hours the whole time. Sweet baby.

PS. Note to self: Plan better campsite meals next year and don't forget the bug spray!
