Four flashlights. And none of them with working batteries. An inauspicious beginning for our first-ever tent camping trip for longer than one night with all our kids. (That’s a thing, right? Like baby’s first tooth and the kindergarten choir… First forced family togetherness in the wilderness!) Which is why we are setting up our tent in the dark. Oh and did I mention it’s raining and supposed to drop below freezing? Yep turns out that old stereotype of deserts being hot – Not always true.
ANYHOW. As you have surmised, it’s spring break here and we are taking a
luxury vacation quixotic journey in the red rocks for the rest of the week. Upside: I can finally try squatty pottying like a real cavegirl while singing Natural Woman and sunning my ladybits (not). Downside: I will be MIA from email and internets. Send me warm thoughts! Or a rescue copter!
Blurry selfie of Jelly Bean and I huddled over the flickering light…of my camera phone. We will find wood tomorrow!
