the adventure carried on.
We spent Labor day at Diablo Lake. Yes actually camping in a tent without electricity or shower - something I have been prepping for mentally all summer, or maybe just avoiding. Since my camping list consisted of my Nespresso coffee frother ( I didn't bring it - note no electricity), fairy lights - for lighting up the campsite and since we couldn't have a fire *major burn ban* - for sure one of the best ideas I had, and my down comforter. Hey I sleep in style.
Don't get me wrong, I love nature and the outdoors, I just don't typically choose to sleep in it.
To be added to the future list, ear plugs. besides critters running around at night there are snorers, and other campers. I did love listening to the owls hoot but eventually I needed to sleep.
But yes I think there will be a future. We totally survived and overall had a rejuvenating time.
Unfortunately on the last day the smoke and ash rolled in from the horrible forest fires raging across our region. It is a very sad state across too much of our wild lands at the moment, praying for rain and safety for those fighting the fires.
A note on the boys ponchos: Aren't they awesome? They are from Kindhood. We love them. I love the style and the functionality - they are lined with the softest terry cloth so they act as a towel but stay on while the boys adventure, the boys love that they are super soft, like wrapping themselves in a blanket. This allowed for lake play all day. Well that and lots of snacks and adult beverages (for the adults).
For reference my boys are both wearing a size L.
Here's to summer lasting just a bit longer.
