this past weekend, i went camping with my family. i'm not a camper by any means but i am trying to embrace it b/c my kids think it's fun and you know what, it's kind of growing on me. we camped at the beach and it was actually hot enough for us to go swimming in the ocean. it was quiet the day and it was fun going back to the campsite and cooking out. i will say though, if i am going to camping more often, i want an airstream :)
my husband and one of his good friends had spent the last 18 weeks training for the chicago marathon. we were suppose to be in chicago this last week with two other couples....ironically, all of us lost our homes during the flood.
