Weekend Roundup...

...it poured on our drive to the campsite -- sheets of rain. But when we arrived at the site, it was barely sprinkling, and it clearly hadn't rained hard at all there (the ground was damp but not muddy).

...we had perfect weather all weekend. :) The kiddos built forts, rode bikes, played with puzzle games, hiked, ate, and generally had a great time (I'd say).

...the other family was fine. I wouldn't necessarily invite them on our next trip (they had a toddler who was rather stubborn and loud -- plus three dogs), but I wouldn't be opposed to them joining us next summer for one trip.

...I didn't get a ton of sleep, but it wasn't horrible either. I probably managed 5-6 hours the first night and around 6-7 the second. I was exhausted last night, but I couldn't sleep for some reason (don't you hate when that happens??). Still, I got closer to 8, so I feel pretty good today (though totally unmotivated).

Here are some pix from the trip:

dnbike (D was the oldest kiddo there, and he spent a lot of time on his bike.)

kiddos1 (A little hike -- all uphill -- to the top of the rocks near our campsite)

sky1 (Storm clouds in the east)

view (This area is very dry right now -- rain notwithstanding -- and although the scrub brush (probably not its official title, btw) is green, it's not a lush area.)

How was your weekend? Anything of note? Happy Monday!

I totally know the whole lack of sleep thing. I've been going through a bout of insomnia lately and it's wreaked havoc in my life. Grrr. I just can't seem to relax and sleep lately. *sigh* I did get six hours of sleep last night so I do feel a bit refreshed today considering that I've had less than five for the last three nights.

We've had some pretty good rains over the last week. It's been nice. They've even lifted some of the fire restrictions around here.

My kids go back to school on Monday so this week will be spent with last minute fun and also cramming in some school shopping time. And I'm still hoping to get some writing done--which is really what I should be doing right now since the kids are off playing with friends at the moment. LOL

Hope you have a great week, Robin!!

Oh, I'm so sorry about the insomnia -- I wonder if it's the heat or something? It's been worse than I usually deal with in the summer, that's for sure. *sigh* I'm glad you got a little more sleep last night, though.

I always forget how early your kids go back...enjoy your last week of freedom :) And write on (no?)! :D

We liked them especially because they were in the east (meaning, they couldn't drop rain on us, hehe).
