We did have a little adventure on Friday. We'd always heard about the storms that come up from out of nowhere and seem to destroy just about everything in their path, but we'd never seen one, until this trip. Friday night we went out to get hamburgers and raspberry shakes. While eating we were watching the storm blow in and knew that we needed to get back to camp soon. We got back just in time and were able to get all our loose items secured. At that point everyone hunkered down in their tents or cars. We decided to sit in our tent and play with the kids, which was fine until the 80 mph winds decided to snap two of our tent poles in half and destroy our tent, soaking just about everything inside at the same time. Fortunately, I had enough sense to have Andrew grab our sleeping stuff while I was fighting the wind and rain to get the kids in the car. Our friends also happened to have their tent (which was not being used - long story) their and let us use that for the next two nights. In the end it was fine, but next year we've got to get a new tent.
Cameron loved pushing the trucks around camp
He also really loved the dirt... I guess he is a boy
On Saturday we made it up to Montpelier, ID and ended up here... Andrew was quite happy being the history buff that he is... I was just happy to be out of the sun for a little bit
Ella thought it was pretty cool that she got to play with the coin machine at the museum
Don't let this happy face fool you... he really wasn't that happy to sit in the stroller and walk around
Cameron especially loved the bear and its teeth... not sure how I feel about this
Did I mention that between the four couples camping we had "nine" kids four and under and two more on the way :)
Since we're really not the fishing type (I have told Andrew he could do an Alaskan fishing trip though) and didn't have anything to fish with, Ella enjoyed playing on the rocks and Andrew got some fun pictures
Thanks everyone for a great trip... and thanks again Porter's for the tent and blankets and tent heater.
