Family Camp Days 2-3

The first morning of camping Andrew woke up at 5am, oh joy. So I got up with him and we just played in the tent for a little while and then went and got ready for the day. We ate breakfast and then got ready to go to a local water park. But...after we got all ready we found out they closed the park due to the risk of lightning. Oh well. Instead we put Andrew down for a nap, and we ended up napping too. Micah and I got a 2 hour nap in, and Andrew slept for 2 and a half hours! Then we had fun hanging out with family, playing games and snacking. And trying to stay dry and out of the rain. Thankfully it stopped raining when we started fixing dinner. After dinner we went over to the volleyball court, and we enjoyed our family tradition of playing volleyball while camping.
That night it rained, and rained, and rained. It rained for over 12 hours straight. When we woke up in the morning the blankets at the end of our bed were soaked. And I later found out Andrew's bag was on top of a puddle that was under our tent, so all his clothes and diapers were damp, and some were completely soaked. We decided we would be leaving that afternoon, unless it got sunny enough for everything to dry out.
After getting ready we helped my aunt and uncle make crepes for breakfast. Yummy! Then it was time for Andrew's nap. While he slept I packed up our stuff as much as I could. After lunch we packed up the car. Then we headed to the volleyball court so Micah could play a few games before we had to hit the road. It was another LONG drive home, but we had fun, and of course Andrew kept wanting to eat. :)
