    Oh. Emily was there. If I screwed it up, she'd be the FIRST one to call my sh*t poop.

    Jimmy only passed my site once, and I would have passed me twice to complete a ‘hot lap’.
    ...and I would have been the SECOND!

    She can't hide a lie. When I said I backed in the first try and hadn't, she would not have been able to contain her laughter. Some thing along the lines of "The first time you tried it for the FIFTH time it went great"!!

    We found a new place to kayak last week near the CG. Lowell Lake State Park is a beautiful quiet lake with 4 small islands, some with picnic tables on them. Parking is limited so if we do a group kayak we will have to load up the trucks.

    Well, Deb has decided to enter the Chili Cook Off this year.... Also, breakfast Friday at the pavilion (North Loop) at 9:30 am (that's a compromise ; )) I'll be bringing Sausage Gravy and Biscuits

    Left alone, Charlotte (almost 15) would sleep until 11. But she gets up without a fight if we wake her. Maddy is up at 6 or 7 whenever her alarm wakes her. Bright eyed and ready to roll.
    Lily would literally sleep until the afternoon if there's nothing to do.

    Still a few sites for you lurkers out there....
    This is camping not work so late breakfasts are a treat, I can't make it till Friday this year so I will miss breakfast unfortunately.
    Here is the itinerary for the rally -
    Friday 9:30 - Brunch (North Loop Pavillion)
    Friday 7:00ish - Meet & Greet community campfire followed by our annual beer tasting marathon @ site N20. Bring your chair and your favorite craft beer. I have a new favorite from the Alchemist to share.
    Saturday 10:00am - Group Kayak @ Lowell Lake State Park. We will meet at the hybrid hollow and go from there. Parking is limited so we can load some trucks with kayaks. Bring a lunch if you want as there are islands with picnic tables we can stop at.
    Saturday Potluck & Chili Cookoff - 6:00 pm followed by the annual hybrid hollow campfire.
    As always, if you have a folding table to bring, please do for the buffet line.
    See you all there!
