We went on our last desert camping trip for this season this past weekend. :( Connor will be sad. He really enjoys riding his dirt bike a lot! Which is good. We will have to plan to day trips on some weekends so he can get some more riding in. Anyway, it worked out good because Connor had no school on Friday so we left early Friday morning. Got out to Stoddard Valley around 9:30am. Found out the first place we were going to camp was filled with trailers and motorhomes because there was a race going on that weekend. Whoops! So back up plan, we went to another spot. No big deal and it worked out great. There weren't too many people camping around us and we even got to go watch part of the race Saturday afternoon.

Friday was beautiful! We had been debating on whether or not we were going to go because of the weather. We were suppose to have a big storm coming in. They did push it back to Sunday so we decided why not. Let's go. Like I said, Friday was beautiful! It started getting windy about 1 or 2 pm but the sun was still out so that made it ok. Our friends got there Friday afternoon and we all just hung out, played outside and enjoyed. Saturday was not so great. Lots of clouds, lots of wind and a little cold. The kids didnt' mind it that much. Well, the girls didnt' like it (especially Taylor) but they did ok. We did play outside. We even managed to take a short ride to the race track so we could see the cars racing by. We were by the pits though so they weren't going that fast. Maybe 20 mph. We also ended up watching lots of movies. ;)

Saturday night the wind kept me up some of the night it was so bad. We were up at 6:30am packing up to leave. We ended up leaving around 9:30am and it's probably a good thing we did. We hit some strong wind on the way home and some rain but nothing like it was at our house in the afternoon. We were actually able to beat the storm home and unload the motorhome before the brunt of the storm hit our house. Whew! So we got to enjoy a camping trip, and miss most of the bad weather so we were lucky.

Our next adventure . . .Flying to Buffalo in April. What was I thinking???? ;)
