This past week my wife hit the big 4-0 and one of the things she wanted to fo was go camping around her birthday. In light of that, I took two days off from work to go camping - we never went.
Two days before my wife's birthday her brother and his wife brought their fourth little girl into the world. Why go camping in the heat when you can stay in an air conditioned car and go see a new baby niece. And that is what we did doing lots of visiting along the way and leaving a child behind at Grandma's for a week. 15 hours of driving later we are home.
Next week end we will try again to get some camping in at the Family Music Festival down by Itasca State Park where we'll get three days of Christian Bluegrass Music.
