off to yosemite!
we hit the road in the morning in a borrowed truck pulling a borrowed tent trailer. the truck was huge and the situation had been described as “a gnat on the back of a whale”. pretty funny.
nolan came with us, and he was the only who had ever been to yosemite before.
after we got there and got the tent trailer set up, shane and I unloaded some stuff and put layla and micah in charge of gathering sticks for kindling. we hadn’t brought any wood, and the campsite was out, so dave and nolan took the hatchet and went in search of downed branches in the woods. there were plenty, and they got a good haul of firewood.
after dinner, we played some cards while we waited for it to get dark. then it was time to make s’mores. (micah was VERY excited about this part. it got him over his disappointment that we couldn’t go back to gramma and papa’s and swim.)
I love camping. my favorite part is just sitting around, chatting, and staring at the fire.
