Weekend Getaway

I got home from my annual camping trip to Buckhorn State Park in Wisconsin on Sunday night. I am still so tired.

Every year Leland and I talk our friends into spending 4 days with us camping on Castle Rock Lake. We eat, drink A LOT of beer, and swim pretty much all afternoon. Though I am back at work, I am still recovering from the weekend. I usually sleep so well whenever I sleep outside, but not this weekend.

(That's one of our campsites. I love how they are right on the lake!)


Plus, I think I am still bloated from all that beer.

Though I didn’t drink nearly as much as I have in the past, my age is making it harder and harder to party and rally. Unlike past years I have been camping, I managed to keep my clothes on all weekend. And I didn’t get drunk so I didn’t spend an entire day hungover. It was just a long weekend of relaxing, swimming, taking naps in the sun and doing beer bongs. Yes, I may be getting older but still don’t think I am too old for beer bongs yet.

Leland went to a concert with Danny yesterday, so when I got home from work yesterday afternoon I was all by myself. Want to know what I did with my time?

I watched High School Musical.

Yep. True story.

And when I was done with it I watched High School Musical 2. I would have kept going and watched the 3rd one, but it isn’t streaming on Netflix.

Yes, I enjoyed them. I am a dork and I don’t care who knows!

Anyway. I’m back home and back to work and all I really want to do is go back to the lake. Is that too much to ask?

I love camping and the lake. This weekend, we put the tent in the yard and slept in it. I slept like a baby! Glad you had fun!!

Oh! And there is no such thing as too old for a beer bong!

The music in HS Musical is catchy. I can't even really give you grief.

Beautiful pics. Sounds like fun except for the sleeping outside part. I need a bed, a.c. and room service when travelling ; )

High School Musical??? I'd rather be retching drunk and hung over. It's not near as painful.

I've only been camping once this entire summer and feel so ripped off by it all. There's just been no time. There was no damn time last summer either! Grrrr.

I've never done a beer bong. True story.

That lake looks beautiful... but I wonder if someone peed in it...

I'm glad you had a good time! Looks like your friends did too!

Hope you are all recovered by now!

I LOVE camping! I like your new design...I sorta suck, it may be old and I don't know cuz I've been HORRID at visiting lately. :(

I love that after you finished the first one, you went right ahead and watched the second one.

I've never seen any of them, but I applaud your commitment to chronological order.
