Memorial Day 2010 continued

On Sunday night we headed up Hobble Creek to camp with our friends. We had tinfoil dinners at the usual time when camping with this group of friends - 10 or 11 pm. We enjoyed stories and songs by B-Money and Willy - our cowboy friend. Willy showed us how cowboys sleep on logs, but fell off after a few seconds and decided he'd sleep on the ground instead. He also told us how he grew up on coffee and beans and that he learned the hard way not to wash cats' heads under the water tap or else they'll bite your fingernail off. He was a hoot and the evening was thoroughly enjoyed by everyone. It was FREEZING cold. Eric and I brought our tent but most people set out their gear on the ground before evening set. When we all decided to head to bed, the bedding that wasn't in tents was covered in frost. Micah and Rachel ended up in our tent with us. We were glad, we always enjoy the company, but I'm not sure how glad they were after Reese decided she needed to run around the tent for an hour at 4:30 in the morning, eat a granola bar, and then go back to bed for a couple hours.

In the morning Jeremiah made us some delicious brown sugar and vanilla oatmeal. It was delish!We shot guns and then Eric, Jeremiah, and Dallas rode the dirtbikes to the beginning of the asphalt road, while the rest of us drove the cars and met them at the road. It was a very enjoyable little camping trip.
