Monday morning arrived all too soon. We took another burley ride, dissasembled camp, and headed to Mam and Pap’s to hang out in the pool. I really can’t say enough about how great it is that that place has a pool. Because, really, what’s better after the crappy job of taking down camp then fighting with your spouse over fun noodles in a pool while your toddler sleeps quietly in the condo.
On the way home, we stopped at Happy’s again to make sure the bunny had his fill of clover. Back Seat Girl ate an entire bowl of soft serve, and took her sweet time about it, too. We got back later than we wanted to because that bowl could not be taken away from her. She guarded it with her life.
When we got home, we had one VERY satisfied toddler, and two incredibly exhausted adults, but we had a GREAT time. Driver and I are very happy we seem to have a little girl who enjoys to do all of the things we love to do, and we are looking forward to many more family camping trips. Also, we highly recommend Kathio State Park near Lake Mille Lacs. It was a great place, with lots of hiking trails, a VERY clean bathroom, great tent sites, a nice pond for swimming, and nicer pit toilets then I’ve seen in a lot of other places.
Thus ends the first camping adventure for the entire Station Wagon Family. I’m sure they will be much more complicated in the future, when we add a Back Seat Boy to the mix, but for this summer we’re just going to enjoy having only one small Back Seater to worry about.
