I love camping

We needed to leave the wedding a bit early in order to get home do a Canada day show with the African Children’s Choir. So it was about 8:00 when we finally got home. We had a wonderful surprise when we got home from the celebration. We found out that Dee was in town and she was on her way to our house! We spent the evening eating pizza and talking all night long! It was so much fun.

Our church was having a HUGE Canada Day celebration on Sunday, so Dee got to come and hear both the adult and children’s African choir sing! It was a great service. After the service we had a BBQ which had to be moved from outside indoors due to the rain but it was still VERY VERY VERY fun!! The gym was packed with huge blow up things that the all kids (big and old) loved! They also had a free ice cream truck which was one of my favorite things! After watching all the kids have so much fun in this really big blow up train that you could go through like a fun house, we decided to find some kids who were too “scared” to go themselves and took them in. Really this was just a plot to get in on the fun so after eating, Dee and I spend the afternoon running through this train with lots of the kids from the church!

Soon it was time to say goodbye to Dee once again. After Dee left, there was no stopping for us. Within the hour we had our tent, cooler and bags packed and we were off to Fundy to join a group of friends for the night!

Last time I went camping I didn’t really have a great time due to the freezing cold weather but since my husband enjoys camping very much I decided to be a good sport about it and LOVE camping! We enjoyed great fellowship with new and old friends around the fire as we ate smores and spider dogs.

I'm so glad you had spider dogs at such an early age. I was almost 50 before I had m first one. A very important life lesson.

What exactly is a spider dog? I've never heard of them.
