A CAMPING THEY WILL GO...

The key word being "THEY"...

Do you recall my post last Monday when I said that we were going camping that Friday?

Do you remember how I wasn't that thrilled about going, but I was going to suck it up and go with a great attitude?

Well, it turns out that I didn't have to...

My youngest son Daniel still had a phlegmy cough, so we decided it was best that he stay home and get better before he gets worst (picture me with a big smile on my face, fist in the air, and saying, "YESSS!")

He was a little bummed out that he couldn't go, so I had to make sure he had a good time with me! Remember, he is my "BOYS BOY" and he would love nothing more than to be in dirt all weekend!

Of course, I had to take a picture of all of them before they left. And I don't know what's up with my oldest sons face..lol. I don't know if he's still half asleep or if the sun's in his eyes?

"Peace out!"

Saying his goodbye to Mocha! Can you see her through the holes?
Photobucket
All packed up and ready to go!
Photobucket
Bikes on!
Photobucket
"Please...can I just go???" Just kidding, he wasn't doing that. He was just being silly!
Photobucket
So long, farewell...until we meet again!! In other words..."C-YA!!"
Photobucket
Of course, I wanted to make the most of mine and Daniel's alone time together, so we had this to look forward to later on!

And the next day, we did this! We saw #12 (Night At The Museum) with my mom. The movie was really cute! Better than the first one, in my opinion! Alot more action!
Photobucket
Danny & my mom before the movie. He was saying, "No more pictures..no more pictures!" LOL

So, overall, it was a QUIET, RELAXING weekend!

How did they all manage camping without you? I mean I don´t know if mine could do it. without the cook they would be lost! LOL

Isn't it great how something just work out! I love movies that sounds like the perfect weekend!

momstheword said...

I haven't camped in years and I am o.k. with that. It always gets my allergies going being in all those trees, etc. Glad you had fun!

Love the picture of Mocha in the sidebar. She's a cutie. To bad we don't live closer.

We could have a puppy playday!

Pilar Stark said...

Sounds like you had a great time!

You gave me two ideas for movies to watch :)

So sorry you didn´t get your camping trip ... heheh ;)

Kelli said...

It sounds like your "camping trip" turned out pretty good after all!! I guess this is one time when your kiddos being sick turned out good!! I'm glad you got to have fun with Daniel even though he wasn't feel the best!

Life with Kaishon said...

I am so glad you had a wonderful relaxing one on one weekend with Daniel! It sounds like a good time! Gary is dying to see mall cop! Did you laugh a lot? Hope your week is wonderful!

Shoebee said...

wow, better than the 1st night at the museum? I loved the 1st one.
Glad to see that you had some alone time with your little man

The Farmer Files said...

LOL and I was looking forward to your post on camping and surviving!

Helene said...

You know, it looks like it all worked out! And you got to have some one-on-one time with your son, which I'm sure he just loved! My kids love one-on-one time and it doesn't happen often!!

Darcie said...

Smiling about your luck over here! :o) Sorry your little guy had to be sick and miss it, but what I weekend the two of you had. Good for you.

Had to laugh at the back picture of your car...did they forget anything?

Stephanie said...

Can I just say that I think you planned that :) HaHa!!!! I hope everyone is feeling better around your house. My boys went to see Night at the Museum over the weekend too and they thought the first was better also.

Debbie said...

That sounds like a perfect time! I'm also glad you liked that movie. I loved the first one but had read bad reviews of this one.

Muthering Heights said...

It sounds like you two had a nice time together...how special to a have one-on-one weekend!

Lisa said...

Alicia, I can't believe you did not want to go. I am sad that the family is going early this year and it will be the weekend of Emily's dance recital so we will be missing out. Girl, it is really fun I am serious.... Your kids are so cute, beautiful...I am glad you were happy and had a good time with Daniel although I hope you get another chance..honestly we love I should post some pics from then...the tents you can get are like little homes...it is a blast.

homeschoolceo said...

Sounds great! Happy bday to your 12 year old!!!

Jane In The Jungle said...

Girl that would so be me also, WooHoo gotta stay home!! Looks like he enjoyed it!

Laura said...

hehehehe, yay! You didn't have to go camping!!! ;)

Neisha said...

So, I'm laughing at this post because I too, hate camping. There is no way you could get me to go. I would probably beg my son to say he was sick to get me out of it. Glad you had a great time with your mom and son in a movie theater with air conditioning and coming home to an actual shower. LOL
