Camping attempt #4

Since our week long family camping trip didn't go quite as planned, what with the weather sucking for most of the week, we thought we'd head out again. Thursday morning my mom, Caden and I headed to Cavalier campground. We managed to get set up before the rain started. We had quite a downpour. The rest of the day was a mixture of cloudiness, followed by a sprinkle of rain. Caden had fun playing in puddles and riding his trike around the campground.
Friday was exactly the same. Cavalier has several awesome playgrounds, so we were playground hopping. Had to run back to the camper twice to keep from getting completely drenched. That evening, Rick and Amy came out as well. Crazy people. Who comes camping when its already J/K. I'm glad they came and so was Caden. They ended up sleeping in the camper instead of their tent because of the rain.

Saturday we headed out to grand forks for the day. I didn't find much. I was looking for black sandals, which apparently are hard to come buy. I managed to find 2 tanks for myself, 7 shirts for Caden, and a pair of shorts for Caden. I love Target/Kohls/JC Penney for Cadens clothes. I don't pay more than $5 for anything. My kinda price. Here are 2 of my favorites.

We had an amazing supper at the Ground Round. I'd recommend it. Plus you get a bucket of popcorn while you wait. Saturday evening we were up till 1:30 sitting around the fire. It was a beautiful night. Rick and Amy set up there tent, without the fly, trusting that it wouldn't rain. They were wrong. In the middle of the night Rick had to get out and put the fly on the tent. We had alot of rain.

Sunday we relaxed, played at the park and packed up. We never did make it to the beach all weekend but oh well. Next summer maybe. Rick spent a bit of time in the afternoon making balloon animals. Caden had fun with this.

Digging with Daddy...or more like watching Daddy dig.

Can you see his hair standing up cause of the static?
