Fifty Shades of Brown

We had a blast on our camping trip – but let’s face it, there were less-than-glamorous aspects that we had to contend with for four days. The first one was the aforementioned wasps; they got a couple of the kids, so we had to designate off-limits areas. The second one, or rather, uh, number two, was a most odorous situation. Meaning, no-flush toilets. Our friend P, who, along with my husband, decided to aim their headlight down the long-drop toilet to have a look, christened it Fifty Shades of Brown. That’s boys for ya, because I used those toilets as much as they did and not once, NOT ONCE, did I feel the compulsion to aim my headlight so I could see better. Bleargh.

ANYWAY, on to better things now.

The day before we came home we went to a river, it was such fun – the boys busied themselves with building a dam.

Friendly river duck πŸ˜€

Our youngest enjoys a jam session with our friend J:

See? This is proof that I was cleaning those boys up whenever I could ;D

The next morning, it was time to pack up and head home:

“Thank you very much, good night!”

And that was our four-day adventure at Yosemite. The boys love camping, playing around in the woods, and being manly men with their buddies. We love hanging out with friends and family and having great food. And wine. Wine is good.

Have a wonderful holiday weekend!

  1. I really don’t think I could handle camping at all. I hated it when I was a kid, what more as an adult? No showers, being yucky…*dry heaves* I’ll watch you all from the comfort and sensibility of a recreational vehicle with a shower.

    Kudos to you, though. There were children present. I don’t think I’d have coped well…wait, you had wine. I see through your trickery. πŸ˜‰

    1. LOL, I think I won’t do four days anymore, though, that was just a little too “ripe” for my tastes. There were showers down at Curry village, for $5, so a few people did that. The rest of us went to the river and felt better after that ;D
