The Campfire.....

We had to cross the River a bunch, I was all up for it, but then my cute husband offered to carry me across.... I thought that was so nice : ) But James was doing the same for Sharon and she jumped up and I don't know what happened but she fell in!!! Poor girl, it was cold outside and I'm sure the water was REALLY cold! But she was a good sport about it : ) and he carried her across anyway!
Billy and Ryan Blowing on the fire...... Russ brought a liter to start the fire with, but all the wood and leaves were wet, but nothing is too hard for these guys! They got it started!
It was pretty Chili outside, so I think we were all glad when the fire got going. And we made tasty smores as an appetizer. But for the main course, they brought all these REI food bags, They looked a little sketchy, I was nervous. But it tasted SOOO good! There were some daring flavors too. I think we had Chili mac n chese, regular mac n cheese, beef stew, corn, green beans, and spaghetti and meatballs. There was even a Cheesecake for dessert! It was like gourmet camping food. Beef stew was my favorite!! I will be buying those again!
The girls... Me, Brindi, Sarah, and Sharon
It was so cute, Sharon's socks were all wet so she put them on 2 little sticks and put them above the fire to dry : ) pretty clever if I do say so myself!
The Guys...Ryan, Russ, James and Billy

Over all it was a way fun experience! It's been way too long since we last went camping! : )

We still need to get copies of all these pictures from you! You left out the part about the 2 hour McDonalds trip in the morning and the log throwing contest. You guys are a lot of fun. We'll have to hang out again soon!
