Great American Backyard Campout 2008

If you didn't hear, last Saturday, June 28, was the National Wildlife Federation's Great American Backyard Campout. We were only one of three registered sites in Wayne County.

After arguing for a while, the kids and I came up with naming our camp "Wild Cherry Woods" because of the forest of cherry trees we have in the backyard. As you can see by the photo, our backyard campout was rained out, so instead we had a "family room camp in." But between rain showers, we did just about everything required of a camping trip. We...
ate hotdogs outside
made crafts (God's eyes, even!)
took a hike
stopped for ice cream
played games
sang songs
set off fireworks
and stayed up too late.

I truthfully blew the entire day having fun. It was tremendous. One of the best days of my life.
