First off, camping with the Castaneda family! It was sooooooooo FUN! I have been camping like two times in my whole life and was kinda worried about how I would like camping and all, but it was great! It didn’t hurt that Tam and Cesar had tons of good camping equipment and had brought the boat. 🙂 The only hiccup in the trip was the temp dropped alittle more than expected at night and we started to freeze. We just huddled together and it all worked out. Next time we’ll be old pro’s and will be more prepared! Nick even cooked a peach cobbler over the fire in his dutch oven. We were all very impressed with his camping cook skills.
The next morning Chris made us all breakfast (yummmm) and then we headed out on the boat. Well, almost all of us. Tam and Jakie stayed back to spend “quality” time together. I was worried that Gracie and Emma wouldn’t like the boat….too fast, too much spray….but, I was WAY wrong. They LOVED it! Gracie kept yelling, “I was BORN for this” with her hands in the air and Emma kept screaming her happy scream and saying, “more boat, more boat!” After boating for an hour or so, we went back to camp, ate lunch and broke camp. Everyone decided to have one more go on the boat (this time I opted to sit out…not enough room for us all) and then went home tired and happy.
