Rainy Days

22 08 2009

august 09 001I’m quite sad that our camping trip with our playgroup friends got rained on. And rained on. And rained on.

We got to the campground on Friday night in time for the lightning show, so we turned around and headed home. We did try and hang around in the area a little to see if it would let up, but after dinner at a nearby pizzeria, the rain was still going strong.

Most of the other families made it out and a few even braved the storm overnight. We drove out to the state park again today to spend an enjoyable afternoon with them. Bean really wanted to go to the lakeside to swim and play ever since we peeked at the beach on our “first attempt” yesterday. Beautiful skies accompanied us on the hour long drive back, but just as we reached the water, the skies turned dark and dumped rain, rain, and, yes, more rain.

Argh! Doesn’t make for many happy campers, especially since this year hasn’t been the greatest camping season in New England and this scenario is “like deja vu all over again!” So home again, home again, with not much to show but a melted cooler of food and a bunch of bug bites.
