I of course forgot to bring the camera, so I have no pictures. We went camping in Nauvoo with my parents and all of my siblings. Everyone was there, except my sister-in-law, Liz. I hear she had a good weekend too. We actually did almost nothing in town, but I didn't mind it one little bit. We were at a great campground with heated cabins, and a playground just a stone's throw from our cabin door. We just farted around and let the kids play all day. We played some volleyball. John, Trent, Ashley and I all went for a morning run. I was by far the slow poke of the group. Oh well, I'll get it back eventually. Well, I'll never be as fast as John or Trent, but I'll be able to keep up with Ashley at least. John, Lydia and I went for a midnight walk all the way down to the river. That was nice. Basically we just relaxed and socialized. About mid-day, our friend Colista, who lives in town came over and brought her boys (who are nicely just the same ages as my boys, so they all played). Ross really liked Tristan! Too bad we don't live closer. We just hung out and chatted. That's about it. It was just sooo inexpressibly nice to be able to let the kids run around, with no TV or video games to fight, no homework to do, no place to have to go to. The weather couldn't have been better either. I thoroughly enjoyed it!
Now I'm back home, I've completely unpacked, I took Clayton to the doctor to investigate a bug bite that looked nasty. Turned out to be a wasp sting. He never cried. Weird. He's fine. We put the basement back together, and cleaned up the downstairs family room. I found out the Chloe has worms (not heart worms), so I have to take her to the vet tomorrow. I have to spend tomorrow paying bills, and catching up on piano practice. And our water heater broke. Fun, fun, Fun. Vacation is over. However, I'm still good and chilled out from the weekend. I care not, it will all be well.
