Memorial Weekend campout

Baily and Morgan both tryed out for the dance team at the high school for next year. They went Wednesday to learn the routine, then returned on Friday for tryouts. Both were very nervous about making it thru, but just a few hours after leaving, they both received a text. Both girls made the team. They are so excited. I am happy for them both.

Both of them had plans for the holiday weekend, which did not include us :) Morgan and her friend had tickets to see Hunter Hayes in concert up in Kentucky. Baily spent the weekend with her cousin Jessica.

We finally got our tent and all the supplies we ordered from Wal-Mart. We wanted to set the thing up in the back yard to give us the opportunity to get familiar with it, and also to spray it with water repellant.

We figured Memorial weekend was the perfect opportunity to do just that. I must say, it was a good thing we did! We opened the tent and found the instructions. It is a 3 room cabin tent. Huge! Not to mention, neither of us really had any idea what we were doing :)

We got the tent spread out on the ground.

After some reading....arguing.....reading, we finally managed to get it up off the ground and looking like a tent :)

I was really glad we decided to put the tent up before we took it to the campground. No need to look like bunch of amateurs in front of the entire campground!

I am very pleased with the size of the tent. Plenty of room for our big family to spread out. I found a good deal on Local Sales Network on 3 new queen size air mattresses. We are picking those up tomorrow.

We had our friend Dianne and her son Brandon over for a few hours. Roasted hot dogs, made smores and visited for a while. It was a nice relaxing evening.

Around 10:00, we put out the fire, and settled in our new tent for the night. It was a cool night with a heavy dew, but we stayed snug and dry. The frogs sang us a lullaby and we fell asleep quickly.

I think the campground is going to work out nicely for us next month for vacation. We are all getting very excited for June 25th to get here!
