The Weekend Trip That Almost Wasn't....

I was sooooo excited about Friday. We were to leave at 10 am to head for Caddo for our annual teacher weekend down there.

Long story short, Sophia had been complaining of a sore throat and I was worried about leaving her for the weekend alone with Russell if she was sick. And if she was sick....it's definitely a two person job.

So we made an appointment at the dr. on Friday morning. Sure enough, she had strep. And thankfully I have the most amazingly, supportive, awesome husband in thew world. Not only did he tell me I should go and leave him with a sick kid, but he told me that he'd come home a little early so I could still leave with my posse, even though this delayed our start considerably.

But I'm so glad I went! I had an amazing time with some amazing women. And it was beautiful and relaxing!

We went on a nature walk Saturday. The leaves were gorgeous!






We saw this cool tree that we could take a picture at.


Donna was a little unsure if there were bugs. Understandable.





But it was kind of sad since the lake was so low.

This poor bird (heron?) could barely get through the muck. Sad!






And of course what would camping be without S'Mores?

And what happens in Cabin 5 (and around cabin 5), stays in Cabin 5.

Love our Caddo weekend time! Can't wait till next year!
