We had a really great weekend. On Friday, after I picked Jacob up from wrestling, we drove up to an old 4-H campsite to meet up with other members of our ward for a camp out. We got there at about 11:30pm, when people were just coming in from ice skating on the lake. We first checked into our cabin. Our family got a cabin to ourselves because the other family we were supposed to share with didn't show up. We then went up to the main cabin and stayed up visiting with people until about 1:30. Then we went back to our cabin and "slept" for a few hours. I think it was about 7:30am when kids started stirring. Well, it really was Josh trying to stir the other kids.
The second day we spent eating, visiting, playing games, and extreme sledding. Yes, extreme sledding. One of our Y.M. leaders drove around the compound pulling kids on sleds behind him. There were a few near accidents, that my oldest will deny (but it's been confirmed), with oncoming traffic. But all in all there were no major injuries to be spoken of.
It snowed all day, and we were happy just to stay put as long as we could.
At about 4pm we decided to pack up our cabin and head out. I took the girls to the bathroom (who's water had a horrible stench) and on our way back to the cabin a big wind came along and dumped a bunch of snow on our heads! Jake was in the right spot to just watch it dump on us, and laugh his head off.
On the way home we saw lots and lots of cars off the road in accidents. We'd even came up early on an accident where a truck was facing the wrong way and was on it's side off the road, resting on a fence, it's driver was standing up and out of his side window and talking on the phone.
We made it home safe, grabbing KFC on the way.
It was a really fun weekend.
