Labor Day Camping Chaos

The car was so full you can’t even see all of the kids. 

Kids lined up for dinner in the cabin. Some camping pluses: new frisbee rings, fun junk food, get away from home. Minuses include lots of bees, high fire danger so no outdoor fire, and Miss Abi had a really rough time. 

Mini church service. 

The stove barfed... the kids thought that was hysterical of course. 

Our 5 gallon water jugs emptied after the first day and the public faucet in town was padlocked. We improvised in the restroom in order to refill the jug. 

Swimming in the Palouse River was chilly! The kids didn’t last long and we were back to the cabin roasting marshmallows. 

Although I don’t have more pictures, the night was eventful, because Abi had a bad episode and also managed to let the dogs out. The older kids rounded them up and brought them back in, but later on, Fritz was still on edge because when I accidentally set my foot on him in bed, he bit my foot. I scolded him and went to hold his nose, and he attacked my fingers, biting four fingers with quite a bit of blood. 

Hubby patched me up and we took everyone back home at 3:30 in the morning in case I needed to go to the ER. It turns out I didn’t and we slept the rest of the night at home. 

We decided to go back out and finish our planned trip anyway, so headed back out in late morning and had our last lunch before packing up properly and heading home.  

When we got home, we were looking back through the blog at past camping trips that Abi enjoyed but she doesn’t remember them and thinks that every trip has been bad. I sure hope she settles down pretty soon because she is a hot mess right now!
