memorable memorial day

With a bit of determination and courage and more than a hint of crazy, Casey and I solo mommaed our brood of four at Ragland Bottoms Campground at Center Hill Lake for a “kickoff to summer” overnight, tent camping get-away. Bigs and littles got along and played really well: caterpillars and snails, frisbee and coloring, sand castles and tent house. Twice on the walk back up from the lake (the bottom) Darwin, whew, girl! You threw two unprecedented screaming fits. (I’m guessing it was attributable to exhaustion and feeling a bit puny from a barky cough that’s trying to take you down, but maybe–sometimes–I gotta kinda wonder if you’re just a brat. :))

In addition to the first camping and swimming of this 2014 summer season, it was also a busy weekend of firsts for my little–and getting bigger daily–girl:
-first two naked peepees in the woods,
-two peepees in the potty,
-first chewing gum without swallowing it,
-and first night in the big girl bed in the bottom bunk underneath brother. Sweet sister, you described it as: “so snuggly…”
