This last week has been really rough. Since school's out, we've been home more, and it's hard. School gave us routine, gave us something to focus on. Now we don't have that. So a friend of ours decided we needed a change of scenery, so we had a spur of the moment camping trip at Big Basin. We rented a tent cabin on Tuesday. The cabin came with everything we needed, including, firewood, sleeping bags, pillows, a propane stove, pots and pans. All we had to take was food and anything else we wanted.
It was so pretty up there being surrounded by so many beautiful redwoods. A change of scenery was exactly what we needed.
The kids had so much fun. We took a nice, long, relaxing walk just to take in everything. The kids favorite part was the steak being dropped into the fire, 3 times. They thought that was hilarious.
My favorite part was relaxing around the fire and not having anything to worry about for a few hours. Also not having cell service. I feel naked without my phone, but it was nice not having to explain to people why I'm not in the mood to talk, or even text.
Saturday the kids and I leave for Oregon to help finish up things for my brother's wedding. Then we'll be off to South Carolina for a couple of weeks. Then headed to LA and Disneyland for a few days before heading back home.
My kids are going to be so spoiled this summer between my sister, brother, my mom, my mother in law and the rest of Tin Man's family. But right now they deserve it.
These birds are pretty, but OMG they are so annoying.
