A Camping We Will Go!

We got to take Shawna and her kids to Branched Oak this weekend for some fun and sun. Saturday morning was very relaxed and while Bill was off the campsite taking care of some things, we decided to go walk and see what we could see. Dylan and I went first because the girls were still sleeping and we saw 'tons' of geese in the water. He decided all the geese were boys - NO GIRLS! After we walked for awhile we thought we better wake up the girls and take the dogs for a walk. It ended up that Jack took all of us for a walk!

Along the way Raegan found treasures galore!!!

After having a little brunch, we made it over to the beach area for a couple hours of swimming and sand action.

It was terribly hot - here's Raegan melting a sandy ice cube on her back. Now THAT had to feel wonderful!

Best part of the day was when Captain Jim came to take us all out on the boat again, only this time it was to try some tubing! The night before he came down to get us all out on his boat and see if the kids even wanted to try tubing the next day. They didn't want to go fast at first, but within 5 minutes of riding, they wanted to go REALLY fast! We had so much fun that night. So tubing on Saturday was on! But when the real thing was going to happen, Dylan wanted no part of it. He chickened out, so Raegan and Shawna took a spin and they had a great time. Raegan made more faces during her ride that we've seen in a long time - she was hilarious. By the time we all got back from boating, everyone was pretty wiped out, so our trip back to Lincoln to take the kids to their dad was very quiet, they fell asleep pretty much before we even were out of the campground. What a marvelous day we had.

Bill and I ran into a few people we knew by accident at our campground, so after Bill got done having no luck fishing, we went and crashed one of their campsites like they did to us during 'happy hour'. I got a chance to see inside one of their rigs this time and a person could just live in that thing - holy cow! Very cool, like a house. But by the time we got back to our campsite, we were absolutely too tired to even eat (even after preparing the fire pit before we left). Guess we aren't as young as we used to be, huh. :)

No, none of us is as young as we used to be. But I'm thrilled you had such a great time!
