Camping in the winter....
Mark took the day off, just to help both of us get ready. Margo attended school and was relieved to know we would pack for her while she was at school. We were set to meet up with friends somewhere around 4:00 PM at the campsight. Of course we were just pulling out of San Jose at 3:45 PM, no we did not arrive at 4:00, but we did arrive only 3 minutes behind our friends. Good thing they left late too! Birds of a feather flock together I say.
Were we prepared? That was a good question, you tell me. Lets see on Saturday you could have found me at Ross looking for a blanket to help us keep warm at night. The sleeping bag was not warm enough...I swear it was freezing temperatures! But no rain!!!! I also needed my internet fix...I know, I know, nature needs to be enough, however I still had a few responsibilities to look after. Thank goodness for Starbucks. Yes I loved the coffee too! Mark stayed back with Margo, the two spent the afternoon, folding and flying paper airplanes.
Oh yes, I forgot to mention our supplies for Saturday dinner were eaten by the little bandits with the sharp claws. We forgot about the hunger of our furry friends. These little guys totally enjoyed our chocolate, marshmellows, tortilla soup, cheese and sour cream. I am not sure what order they ate them in, although there was a trail of leftovers. Good thing Kim had packed extra food...enough to last the weekend.
