After that the whole camping trip went south. Daisy dog was miserable, the humidity was making her sick, then brother got sick with a nasty cold and we packed up and came home. I kid not. I couldn't believe it!!
In the few short hours I was there, I relaxed for 5 minutes, watched other families have a wonderful time swimming and jet sking in the water. The sun was beginning to set and it was gorgeous on the water. The fire my youngest son built was so nice(even with the humidity). The food was good. The Smores were better. That was it.
I have to say that I am so happy to have had a Smore before we left. It made it a little better considering the rest. I am still bummed about it.
We have spent the entire weekend at home watching movies and being lazy. :)
On a lighter note, my sons are so funny. They love to watch old western movies. They have watched Clint Eastwood movies this weekend and they both come to me and ask if I will make them beans like the cowboys were eating in the movie. lol I said, you mean pinto beans?? They tell me yes, at this time I remind them every time that I have made them in the past they didn't eat them. They promised me they would eat them. Thanks to Clint I had to make pinto beans for dinner tonight. lol
Memorial Day Dinner:
Pinto Beans(just like Clint Eastwood would like)
Peaches and Cream Corn
Sliced tomatoes and onions(fresh from the Farmers Market)
Smores of course but over a candle at my kitchen table. Surprisingly good. :-)
A few more pictures . The other night the moon was a gorgeous orange. I tried to capture it as beautiful and orange that it was but this is the best I could do and so perfect here in "Orange Country".
In honor of the orange moon I have to add: GO VOLS!
My orange flowers finally bloomed!!!
Happy Memorial Day!!
