Wow. What a summer so far!! It sucks not being able to have every single day with Cory. But man, we play so hard when he isn't working, I need those 4 days he does work to recover. Let me give you an example of the past two days:
We went to Lagoon - a - Beach and played around until about 3:00. Sun, swimming, climbing stairs, heat, and lots of fun.
We came home, showered, and packed our gear for an overnight backpacking/climbing trip.
Although we didn't go that far, we then set off at about 6 pm to go climb and camp. Hauling a 40lb pack around wasn't as hard as I expected, but it was still tiring. Where we were going, you can't drive to so we had to haul everything with us... including very heavy climbing gear.
About 7 we began climbing and continued until dark. We had dinner, set up camp, built a fire pit, found and chopped up wood, and fought off ants and spiders all night long. We also had to pitch our tent on a spot of concrete, and crammed Cory, Nate, and I into a very small backpacking tent. Needless to say, we did not get a good nights rest.
I woke up with the light, at probably about 6:30 am. I laid there until about 8:00 when the boys woke up. Finally :) We made breakfast, packed up camp, and climbed again.
Came home, had a nap, then went swimming for over an hour. More heat, sun, swimming, and fun.
Those were just the past two days. I'm very, very tired. But I wouldn't want it any other way. Our first backpacking trip was so fun. I can't wait to go for more than one night, and walk much farther.
I'm not usually this diligent of a blogger, but as long as the crazy fun continues, so will the posts. Enjoy!
