with 4 small children we axed our plans. and camped out right in our own warm beds.
since matt had already taken time off, we had our first annual family day, starting with breakfast at ihop, a couple of hours spent at classic fun center, followed by a stop at in-n-out, swimming at the rec center, and an evening showing of "the squeakquel" with dad's famous popcorn. everyone was so pooped we all dropped off early. (and i got out of washing filthy sleeping bags)
don't tell anyone but deep down, i'm secretly happy. because camping (although i love it) is extra, extra, extra more work for one person, moi. mother nature just saved me a week's worth of laundry
