This weekend was a little different for us. Besides our news about Blueberry, we had a lot of things planned. One of those things was that Dad's neice had a birthday party. She loves, loves, loves camping and always has wanted to have a camping trip for her birthday, which is the day before Halloween. Every year, it's been rained out, so last year, they rented a cabin at Camp Wokanda so that everyone could camp, but they didn't have to worry about the rain cancelling the trip or the fun. Since it was so much fun last year, they decided to make it an annual family event. This weekend was when they picked to have it.
We didn't camp out there, because Dad's younger brothers and sisters, Number 8, Number 9 and Number 6 can get a bit wild and crazy, and because we didn't want to be away from Blueberry and Lilac too much. Still, we didn't want to disappoint the birthday girl, so we went out and had s'mores Friday night and sat around the campfire. Dad decided that since Morgan can be a little Sheperdy, especially in the dark, that she'd stay home Friday night. So, I was the only one who got to go and eat s'mores. I really liked that part, and I even had to rough it and lay on the floor on a thin blanket with no dog bed. I almost wished I'd stayed home when we were outside by the campfire for a while because it was cold! Thank goodness Mom brought my warm coat to put on over my tummy warmer. She was nice enough to rub my cold feet when we got back in the cabin, too.
