Our family went camping the weekend before last. We hit our local KOA and rented a cabin. We have a pull behind 30 foot camper but we've left it in Kentucky at my parents home for the winter. (and all last summer) LOL We just didn't have that camping spirit this year for some reason. But I digress...

We rented a cabin at the KOA on the rainiest weekend of the year. I'm not talking about a little downpour every so often throughout the weekend. I'm talking about the weekend when all the hurricanes were hitting the southern coasts and the rain was pushed up, up, up all the way to Michigan! It rained THE ENTIRE TIME! All of the time, without ceasing. We're talking the beginning days of Noah only it stopped long enough for us to pack up our things Sunday morning and hop on the highway home a day early.

The Kids, however had a ball. There were kids all over that park riding bikes. They had mud slung up their backs, into their hair and all up their legs. It was a kids DREAM Camping Experience! You have no idea! They didn't want to come in! LOL AND the pool was open. Who knew!?

So, as I swung on the porch swing of our little rustic cabin our boys played in the rain. Anyone who knows me well knows that I Love the rain. If it is raining outside I try to go walk in it at least once. I would rather walk in the rain than the hot sun any day of the week. There is just something about rain that makes me smile. Oh my goodness and if I'm shopping and I come out of the store and it is raining...Oh My Goodness...I get such a high from walking to my car. LOL

I just had a brain blast! I need to find some rainy day activities for the boys. I can incorporate this into our homeschooling days! Ahh!! I'm so excited!

Hi there,
We were just up in Michigan. We made a delivery to Detroit.

So sorry to hear your camping trip was canceled but I remember how fun it was to play in the rain also as a child.

I bet they had a great time!!

I know you have a lot of sites and also enjoy getting your word out.

I have been away for 5 months and am trying to get back on my feet as well.

How much fun!!! I also love the rain, but alas, we now live in the desert. I'm lucky if I can get outside before it stops raining to enjoy it. Recently, we had a thunderstorm, and that was fantastic!!!

I also wanted to let you know that you have been officially tagged!

Head on over to our blog to read all about it!!!

Been there done that. Can't even count how many times I have been tent camping in the rain. Just gotta find things to occupy your time. Great blog. Keep up the good work.

I have been tagged by my wonderful friend ... Tracy Cavelli. So I am supposed to post 8 random facts about me and then choose 8 people to get tagged!

First, the rules:1. Each player starts with eight random facts/habits about themselves.2. People who are tagged need to write their own blog about their eight things and post these rules.3. At the end of your blog, you need to choose eight people to get tagged and list their names.4. Don't forget to leave them a comment telling them they're tagged, and to read your blog.
