Who Needs Reservations???

Apparently everyone needs reservations to go camping these days. Joel, Maddy (our camping buddy), and I set off last saturday to go camping at Farragut State Park in Idaho. This is one of our favorite spots, and we have never had a problem getting a camp site. We drove all the way there (1 1/2 hours), just to hear...sorry we are full. You have got to be kidding...this place has a million sites. Ok, maybe not a million, but over 100 sites. So, as you can imagine, we had one very sad little girl. Joel and I decided to try a campground that we had heard about on Hayden lake on the way back. I do not recommend this place at all. It was creepy. It was full of several back-wood folk, that looked like potential serial killers. (Joel, assured me that I should not be judgmental, and that they were probably really nice) After about one hour, we were done. It was just too creepy and we had already found a tick. Joel and Maddy had enough time to cook a hamburger on the fire and go for a quick hike. We ended up at home, after a disappointing day, to play a mean game of "SORRY" and let Maddy pick a movie from a rental shop. We had a great movie/game night after all. So a word to all the wise out there...Make Reservations!

Boy do I miss those hamburgers. Not to mention our fun camping trips.
