The Joys of Camping

We went camping this last weekend.
It was the kids first time ever so we took it fairly easy.
We went to Jellystone of Estes and the kids loved it.
Unfortunately, the adults mattress lost it's screw top and so the air lasted only so long... as in oh... about two hours. I also grabbed the wrong sleeping bag for the adults and we ended up with ONE... yes, you read correctly ONE sleeping bag for the two of us. If the mattress hadn't gone flat then we would of been okay, but nope... we were tired, grumpy, cold and uncomfortable for all of the night... Oh well...

We did get to play Candy Bar Bingo at the campsite and the kids did get to roast marshmallows over hot coals. So it wasn't too much of a wash out. We did end up leaving early though... I mean how many nights can Guy and I sleep on the hard ground... and we were not going to buy a new mattress in the city of Estes Park where they do not have a Walmart/KMart/Target. That was one of my first purchases when we got back though. $29.99 for a Coleman Queen size mattress at Target and this one has a double lock feature to make sure it doesn't leak! Whoo hoo!

Here are a few pictures for you to enjoy:
