hume lake 2008 - mama bear and two photos of a gorgeous field we came across
this week i'm getting ready for a seven night camping trip at hume lake in the sequoias with the fam. dan's family has been camping there since before he was born and we try to join them at least every two years. swimming, biking, campfires, games, walks around the lake, dinner at the snack shop at the christian camp, laughter, playing on the floating log... it's pretty much a guaranteed good time! going to hume brings back great memories for me since i grew up going to winter camp there with my church during my jr. high and high school years. although it's a lot of work to camp with little kids (and we're tent camping!)... and going without a shower for seven days isn't exactly ideal... it's always a lot of fun. i've got a lot of work ahead of me this week, piles and piles of laundry, getting all the gear together, making lists of what we need and going over those lists a million times, shopping for all the food we need to pack and other items that we need as well as cleaning the whole house and changing sheets for our friends adam and alisha who are so kindly house/dog/kitty sitting for us. all of this PLUS working out two hours a day so that i can stick with my challenge all while trying my best to entertain three rambunctious kids.
so... i probably wont be blogging much this week... maybe just one or two more posts...
some questions for you
do you like camping? how many of you could go without a shower for seven days? tent camping or are you a motor home/trailer type of girl?
