We used to scoff at camping close to home and would never have celebrated a birthday or holiday at the campground. But things have changed. Last year we realized that we could camp close to home and still get the kids to their baseball games (read about it here). This year we realized that we could camp close to home and have a slam dunk birthday party with family and friends. When the campground calls us, we must go! Even when other responsibilities are calling our names.
It was such a delightful weekend, even though it was cut short. But more on that later. We arrived late afternoon Friday and rain storms with thunder and lightening were threatening. But it was still exciting greeting our RVing buddies as they pulled in and set up one by one. Sometimes we like a little “weather.”
It did rain and it rained hard. But not for long. After the night sky cleared up we dug into our storage bins for lanterns so the kids could play. Their jammies were already on–but why not be spontaneous and break a few rules? We all know that bedtime can creep a wee bit late at the campground, right?
