the rest of the weekend
Once it stopped raining Saturday morning we realized we still had issues because now we were camped in the muddiest spot in Pine Lake. My ideal spot with the great view was also nicely shaded so it had the least amount of grass. So we moved down 4 spots next to Tom's folks. We sacrificed our "view" for cleanliness!
The rest of Saturday was perfect! Tom's Dad made us a fantastic breakfast of pancakes, eggs and sausage. Wav and I got a shower and we spent the rest of the morning lazing around, reading and relaxing. My folks and the Niedert's showed up mid afternoon and Uncle Brian and Waverly headed off to fish. They are really best buds. He is so patient with her, teaching her to fish and talking to her about just about anything she wants to talk about. By the end of the night she was casting like a pro!
About 4 or so I decided I was ready to try my hand at fishing. I attempted to bait my own hook which left me with worm guts all over my shirt! I caught a couple little "bait" fish at first, I was thrilled with those. But then I got a real fish. I hooked a bass! I was all excited, showing off my fish before Tom pointed out that I might want to keep a lower profile as I wasn't exactly legal (what's the statue of limitation on that?).
We cooked up a big dinner for everyone and enjoyed sitting around the camp fire until late in the evening. Our 10x10 awing with rope lighting worked out great, it's a nice addition to our pop up. What in the world did we do before we got the pop up? What are we going to do once it's too cold to camp? I can't imagine, lol!!!
