Well . . . no camping after all. Turns out the forecast was for rain this past weekend. Anywhere else in the country, you'd just grab your rain gear and head on out. However, in California . . .
Really, the other three families all have young kids so, if no rain is a realistic option, it's worth waiting. I wanted to go anyway, but Jrex (wisely) thought about what a wet dog in a tent might be like. So, we wimped out with the rest of them.
Instead of a camping weekend, we did a Cowboy-themed cookout at one couple's house. I baked cornbread in a skillet! Chili in a crockpot for the main meal. Dessert had nothing to do with cowboys and everything to do with Trader Joes, but it was fun anyway.
Sorry for the boring post. I'm waiting for edits and in the thick of a ton of deadlines. Ugh.
