Anyways, we arrived at camp on Thursday afternoon. It was a little over cast and I did watch the weather report that it was going to rain a little bit but would clear up by Friday (so me being the bright one thought that a little rain would not hurt). After Justin had set up our tent and got our air mattress blown up with our sleeping bags on them, it started getting cloudy and was sprinkling a little bit. As soon as my last sibling Cassy and her family arrived it was like the heaven's opened and boy did it downpour. I could not believe how much rain we were getting. Most of the kids that were running around thought it was great. We then started yelling at them to get under the pavilion to stay dry. Mom and Ashley then started to cook their famous Japanese dinner in Dustin's honor. While we were sitting there watching the sheets of rain coming down and smelling the wonderful dinner being made, I asked Justin if things were touching the sides of our tent. He then told me that our things would be fine....Well 30 minutes later after the rain died down Justin and I decided to go and check on our tent...RAIN is not as friendly when you get to your tent realizing that the wind took off your rain cover and the inside of your tent is a swimming pool. We then had to take all the things out of our tent and take them over to the pavilion to dry before night fall. On a side note: Dinner was wonderful. We all ate to much and could not move it was so good.
That night most of us slept really warm due to our sleeping bags drying out. The next morning Justin and I were in charge of breakfast and we had build your own breakfast burrito. I am glad that everyone liked it and that everyone had a good night. After breakfast we all walked over to the bridge by the stream to have our family pictures taken. Here are a few of them...
Hanging out after pictures were complete
Later that afternoon we did our Wirly Pop Recipes so that the judge would have time to have them judged before dinner. Here are the many creations that we came up with this year. Garrett had Stuffed strawberries with regular popcorn, Ashley had Turtle popcorn balls, Justin and I created Smores Popcorn, Allisha had Cinnamon Bun Carmel popcorn, and Cassy had Classic Cherry Jell-o Popcorn. They all tasted so good...it was really a tight race this year.
We love ya!
