Funny story was when I kept hearing this crazy alarm going off in someone else's tent and when I looked up, the Ro's were coming out of their cabin with the door open and a pan in hand. They had set off their fire alarm cooking bacon!
We kicked off our morning by raising the flag with Cindy Bear and together everyone recited the pledge of allegiance. Micah got picked to help raise the flag.
After that, we couldn't just pass the jumping pillow without well...jumping!
There was some coloring activity, and also an Easter Scavenger Hunt. We then took a nature hike, met up the general store, and then both the mommies took afternoon naps with the youngest sons. This is me and youngest son trying on our Luray-Wear.
We then headed to the Luray Garden Maze. That was fun to work together to get to four goals to exit the maze. It was fun to see all the personalities come out, too.
We got "home" and the Ro's made a yummy dinner and the boys made fire. Gene bought these massive marshmallows so we had to do more smores! I didn't get the picture, but the boys went to Walmart and bought four beautiful blue-green folding camp chairs and we sat around the fire at night when the boys went to bed.
The next morning we spent the whole day at the Luray Caverns and Museums. I was so proud of the boys. They walked an entire mile, walking through the caverns in about an hour with very minimal whining!
They were just about done here. :-) We had a great start to the first half of our Spring Break. I was actually really really relaxed. In fact, there were times I had no desire to talk for a long time it was that peaceful. We got to unplug and just spend time with the kids and our other family and just make great memories together. Patrick wants to try and do this camping thing annually. I didn't really "get it" before, but now I do. Things are so simple and so beautiful in the great outdoors that you can recharge yourself and cut out the noise and just be. I'm ready to go again!
