A few weekend ago, Raychel, Oceana and Madison went camping for the first time! Boy, did they have a blast!!
We went camping with friends and their kiddos, so that made it all the more fun!! The girls loved everything about camping, from sleeping in a tent to playing in the lake all day to making yummy smores before bed. They enjoyed everything that camping has to offer.
This camping trip was a lot of fun, BUT it did have its up and its down.
My lovely husband decided to take a four hour nap during the day while I, the girls, and all his friends were on the lake! This made me very upset, because this was supposed to be a family thing and he was sleeping for most part of the day. He left me some what alone with the girls, and it was a little rough, because... first of all... Madison cant even walk yet so I couldn't put her down, and Raychel & Oceana needed to be watched while they swam in the lake, they all needed to be feed and these were all Ray's friends, which I love, but come on now, don't leave me hanging. Well... once ray finally woke from his nap, he made it up to me. He felt bad. He cuddled me, loved on me, and we ended up having a great one on one time together to talk (while Madison napped).
Ray does work very hard through out the week and some weekends, so I can understand how tired he must be once he gets time to relax, but this particular day it made me very upset, but in the end it all worked out for the good!
If Ray didn't take that four hour nap then maybe we wouldn't have had this great one on one quality talk that brought us all the more closer.
You may ask, why is she posting this? Because, I want to show the reality of our camping trip. This camping trip was tons of fun, and these pictures will show you that, but like any healthy, normal marriage you get up set with your spouse, the important thing is how you handle it. I could have stayed mad all day, but it wouldn't be worth it. I love this man and I know how hard he works for us and he knows how hard I work as a mom and a wife, so we talked about what I (we) was/were feeling and it turned out to be the best thing!
I am now very thankful for that four hour nap!
