catching leaves

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!
