Okay, I have survived another camping trip. Each time it gets a little better. We travelled to Tyler Bend, off Highway 65 through Marshall. The drive was better for me - I tend to get a little car sick. We arrived on Thursday afternoon, got the tent set up, etc. and started enjoying our time with friends. That is probably the most enjoyable part of this for me - spending time with our dear friends. The Lord has really blessed us with a group that loves one another, loves each other's kids, helps one another, encourages one another and truly enjoys everyone's company. On Thursday night we enjoyed a group meal with chili, fritos and all the trimmings. That night was a little cold, but my mummy bag is so great! On Friday morning, after breakfast we enjoyed an "easy" hike. I am getting better at these, but this was hard. We had a little funny happen. Tim had left his shoes outside that night and of course they got wet. He was trying to dry them out and ended up burning some of the rubber soles. I would like to say I responded in a kind and loving way. The Lord is still working on me. I was defintely frustrated by this. I looked around and decided it was time to make an ice run. We all now laugh about this. The weather was great. But I have to say my bed never felt so good as it did on Saturday night.
