Camping Trip Numero Dos

So remember how I said we took another camping trip? We did, a few weeks later the night before my birthday. We went up with some of our neighbors for tin foil dinners and dessert and then just two of us stayed the night.
So we get to the camping sight and all is well. And things generally continued to be fine...we read books in the surrounding of nature...
We prepared meals to share with our friends...

We sat around the campfire...

And made closer bonds with existing friends...they look like they're having a blast don't they!?

There's a smile! We ran around and got all sorts of dirty...

Enjoyed some peach cobbler and an attempt at Taboo...everyone quit when Rob and I started ladominating. Not really, but it's true that we can never be on the same team, it's so sad. We love to play together but we know each other to well and think too much alike it becomes unfair.

And then...the night came...
All was well, we put Elizabeth to sleep around 830 and she went down pretty easily. We enjoyed the rest of the night around the campfire and retired probably around midnight. I don't remember anymore if it was right then or an hour into it but our little neighbor friend was not having as easy a time slumbering as the rest of us. He started crying and crying and crying and just when we thought he'd stop...it woke Elizabeth up and she started crying which eventually got him crying again. Let's just say this went on the majority of the night! My poor neighbor tried everything, even getting in the car for a little drive but he was just so sad. So we were up the WHOLE NIGHT! We were in exhausted hysterics by about 4 AM with nothing to do but laugh as Elizabeth jumped up and down on our mattress wide awake and lovin it.
Unfortunately Rob was supposed to leave straight from there to go golfing the next morning in Park City. I had promised to drive him to his car probably about a mile away maybe longer because I'm always up early when we camp. Well, in the brain fog I was experiencing of like one hours sleep I said, "bye I love you" about the time he was going to ask if I was still driving him. So he just walked to the once in a life time golf opportunity he just had to take on my birthday that he's had three or four times since! :)
So this is us first thing about 6 or 7 in the morning on officially the worst night sleep of my life. :)
I love this little girl.

We don't look to horrible right? How can you be in a bad mood on your birthday!? We seriously did have a great time anyway and laughed off what can only be expected from even the best of little ones every once in a while. So will this derail us from many a camping trip next year? Not one bit!
