Friday evening after work, Jeremy and I climbed into our packed car and drove an hour and a half to join my sister and brother-in-law for a quick weekend camp. The weather was very mild (quite cold in the evenings really) and for a day and a half, we lazed around eating, talking, playing games, sleeping. It was a refreshing retreat.
This was J's first camping experience and I think he mostly enjoyed his time. I suppose it is more work than a hotel retreat, but there's something incredibly satisfying about being outdoors, cooking food over the fire. I told Liz that Mom and Dad would be proud, they trained us well to be campers and we're carrying on that tradition.
J and I rarely get more than a 2-day weekend, but I'm hopeful that we'll have a few more weekend camping retreats.

Today I don't have to work, so I'm packing away the camping gear, doing laundry, cleaning, etc. I was hoping to go to the pool for a bit, but the weather looks uncooperative. So, we'll see if that happens.
