Weekend Fun [Camping]

Tuesday, August 5, 2014

This past weekend we went camping with college friends, an annual trip that has been a tradition for 7 years now. The 'guestlist' has differed a little, but the main few remain the same.

The Mr. played basketball in college and is still buddies with some of those guys today. They are/were teammates, roommates, friends, brothers. I was also a teammate and best friend to one of the girlfriends (now a wife); and the other wives/girlfriends have fit into the group perfectly and I now consider them friends also. Some of my best memories are with this group of people and I am so happy we still keep in touch and make the effort to get together often.
We packed up and dropped the Little off with my parents and made our way out to Lake McConaughy in Nebraska for the weekend. I was a little hesitant being 29 weeks pregnant (and often uncomfortable), but the A+ company made up for the hot weather, sand everywhere and tent-sleeping, for sure.
This trip was no exception to years past - stories of the glory days were told, played with fire and we enjoyed plenty of dips in the sandy-beachy lake.  
I have to admit, I was happy to get home to my own bed, but we were especially thankful to get some quality time in with such special, life-long friends.

  2. oh that is a great getaway, sorta. I mean maybe without tents. I'm not big on tents. But, getting away with a big group of old friends is really good for the soul! Sounds like you had fun though! Beds are even better after you don't have one for a few days.

  3. How fun!!! I can't say that I am a fan of sleeping in tents (and the bugs!!!) but I LOVE other aspects of camping... mainly smores! haha. What a fun getaway with college friends though! A nice little getaway with just adults having fun. I haven't had one of those in... a little over 2 years!

    1. Oh the bugs... And frogs and mice, and we saw a little snake.. Don't get me started..!! :) We had a great time though and really enjoyed all being together again. :) It was nice to not have to worry about the little guy for a few days either (I know he had PLENTY of attention and fun at Grandma and Papa's).
