    Default Epic fail!!

    So I decided to do a spur of the moment camping trip... I cashed in my change jar, woke up early and went grocery shopping. Spent the day packing the car full of wood, ice chests, tents, our bags of clothes and towels, and all our other camping gear....
    Surprised the kids, of course they were SUPER EXCITED!!
    We all stuffed ourselves and our doggie into the car, and headed to the river!!
    The river campground is a first come first serve place, no reservations allowed. I figured since it was a Thursday there would be plenty of sites left... Well guess what.... There was not one open camp site!
    Ugh ugh ugh!!
    We turned around and came home. Booooooo

    Such a huge bummer!!!

    Well when we got home we set the tents up in the backyard, so I guess we will have to settle for backyard camping. Lol.

    oh wow that's so sad that the grounds were all full by the time you got there, but yeah you for being able to save the day with backyard camping--which I think is the best anyways, especially if it rains or other problems arise.

    You are such a great mom to do spur of the moment things like that!! I dont think this was an epic fail, you were still able to save the day and be the super-mom that you are!

    What a bummer about the campsite, but it still sounds like fun for backyard camping!

    I was tempted to do that with the kids before school started. I still have it filed in the back of my mind. We did make it camping earlier in the year though. ;)

    Kudos for trying! I don't camp ... so this would've been an EPIC divine intervention for me. The backyard camping with the kids sounds like way more fun anyway. The added bonus is you can head inside for a nice hot shower and a quick nap in a nice soft bed ...

    I hope y'all had a great time with plan B!
