It's not all sunshine...

It rained on the second day of our Labor Day Weekend camping trip. Not just a quick shower... but off-and-on all day. What do you do when it rains on a camping trip?

Lyle enjoyed standing under the awning watching the rain come down.
We had planned to go Geocaching that day, but didn't relish the idea of tramping through dripping trees. Becky was just sure the day was a total bust. It wasn't.
In between showers the girls went wading in the lake. I expect the water was cold, but they didn't complain!
When they came back to the campsite we put up a canopy over the fire ring. We spent several hours reading around the fire.
We had fresh popcorn for a snack!
When it began to get dark we went inside the trailer and played games and had hot chocolate.

It was a relaxing, cozy day in spite of the rain!

I LOVE camping days like that. Curling up with a good book in the rain is VERY relaxing. I ALSO take my lappy and do a little blogging. The games and hot chocolate sound wonderful too.

Now, this is ALL contingent on NOT camping in a TENT. If it's a tent - - - I'd be headed home.

Pass the popcorn please. I would love it and a good book on a rainy day.

Geocaching and camping sound like so much fun! I would LOVE to go camping next year!

How did you make the popcorn?
