I was convinced that our final trip of the year was over before it started. Forecast says 48/36,showers & breezy for weekend & I knew DW wasn't in for this. I had resigned myself to doing winter prep & saying goodbye until April. DD #1(12) was visibly upset when I broke the news @ dinner tonite. DD #2(8) said nothing. That is an indication she's pissed. DD#1 asks me later "why are we not camping?" I explained the forecast & she comes back with-"Dad we have a camper,rain gear & heat.". DD#2 says "we just split & loaded 2 bins of wood." Well,I can't argue with any of that. Sooo......DW gets a weekend alone to scrapbook & DD's & I are going camping. I offered up ipods & dvds just in case,they chose bikes & fishing gear. As much as we (well I) think we fail at this parenting thing,camping works.
