Pray for us, we are going camping for 6 days......in a tent!

We do have toilets and showers and a nice pool to swim in.

We are here, its Sunday and so far its been okay, the first night was kinda hellish and I ended up taking Matthew for a drive so that he would finally fall asleep (at quarter to 11). Last night was better but my blasted allergies have started acting up so I'm all stuffed and body achey, I'm sure it will pass. I'm loving our hikes and seeing Bryce and spending time with Andrew's family. We wouldn't have been able to come had it not been the kindness of my in-laws, we borrowed a huge tent from his sister, his parents set their easy up in front of our tent so we're not in the baking sun all day. His brother lent us 2 cots and pads so we aren't sleeping on the ground, we had one cot that Will is sleeping on, Matt (Andrew's brother), also lent us their Thule for the top of our new car that is MUCH smaller than our old car, but we LOVE! And my grandparents are letting us use their cooler. My FIL has a pass that gets the car that he's riding in into the park for free so we haven't had to pay to get into the park. My MIL had been very gracious about sharing their meals with our children. I'm so thankful for Andy's family, I'm even more thankful when I talk to other people and tell them that we're going on vacation with them and they say "oh my family couldn't ever do anything like that, because we would all fight about what to do...."

Things that we forgot that I will NEVER forget IF we ever go camping again, twice as many warm clothes that I think we need, twice as many towels that I think we need, cold medicine, allergy medicine, and more ziplock bags! I will update again if we get more down time.

Oh I finished Breaking Dawn on our way down here and I will just say two things about it #1. I LOVED it, I must have because reading in the car has ALWAYS made me sick but when there's a will there's a way! #2 I'm going to hope beyond hope that she will someday continue with Jacob's story, won't ruin it for those that haven't read it yet..................
