Cobra Clan go Camping!

Gage, Derek and Eric
The last week of school I pulled the boys out of school and we took them and one of Gage's friends Derek, camping up at Rock Point Provincial Park which is only about an hour from here.  The weather was a little too windy so the surf was rough and the water still too cool, but over all we had a good time. 

We had campfires, and beach time.  We slept in tents, in sleeping bags with NO air mattresses.  We had nocturnal visitors at night that weren't terribly welcomed.  A couple skunk visits and a couple racoon visits.  LB paid us a visit on day two to hang out for bit as well. 

Doing his most favourite thing from the whole trip!

We played cards, we hunted on the beach for drift wood firewood, we ate roasted marshmallows, hotdogs and smores, we got sunburned, we buried each other in sand, we built sand castles and a stick house complete with a full yard with furnishings, fence and pond...and we took loads of pictures!

However, following our camping trip, Eric's (pretty new) camera shit the bed.  He seemed to be able to upload the pictures that were still on it, but for some reason his laptop keeps crapping out when he tries to load the camping photos.  We took so many more pictures of our but only three are salvagable.  Pretty bummed about that.  I'm hoping he'll be able to save them later when he has the time and patience to work on the computer. 

Anyway, I think everyone had a good time for the most part and I'm glad we were able to sneak away for a few days to spend this time together.
