We're going camping this weekend and I'm so excited. We had to buy a tent ($54) and will still have to buy gas and food. I know that it will cost us money but will be so worth it for the family time. We're going with Y's BFF and his two boys. It will be the first time that we will be camping with little Punk (that's how I'm going to refer to my daughter going forward.)
We had a tent but Y broke it last summer at a motorcycle rally. Apparently, he got really drunk and didn't see his tent there. He tripped over his own tent and broke it. He also didn't tell me about it until about a week ago. What a dork! That's why I don't go with on his motorcycle rallies. (Full disclosure: he was camping there, obviously, and does not drive/ride after he's been drinking.)
The Badlands are in Western North Dakota and we will be in Teddy Roosevelt National Park. It should be beautiful and a way to reconnect with family, friends, and the outdoors. I'm hoping for nice weather.
What are you doing for Memorial Day Weekend?
