Baby it's cold outside

This past Saturday we went camping. All eight of us – me, my husband, the girls, and the unborn babies, and our two dogs – hopped in the car and drove 2 hours to our favorite camping spot. It was cold. Very cold. At least to us it was cold. We decided against a portable heater thinking “how cold could it be?” And we bought a lot of fire wood instead. Which only helped so much.

We all sat VERY close to the fire. Close enough to melt our shoes. But we were still cold. Once bedtime came, we all squished into the tent – all eight of us. And, it was cold. Very cold. So cold in fact, that we wore hats, coats, extra socks – anything we could get our hands on. It was just SO COLD. And I am not kidding!

One of the dogs had been shivering all evening and was using two blankets to stay warm. The other started with the shivering around 2 am – right about the time we decided to pack up and go home. 2 am. Yes – in the morning. We packed everything, threw the kids and dogs in the car and drove home – arriving around 5:30. We will not be doing that again anytime soon.
