We have gone on so many trips this summer, it’s unbelievable. Normally, it’s big for us to get 2 trips in…but right now, we’re working on our fourth trip!! I think we’ve been quite adventurous this year. 😉
Actually, right now, I’m on vacation. I wrote this post ahead of time for it to publish on Sunday….hopefully it worked. Let me outline all our trips we’ve made these past few months!
The end of May started it all. We went camping in the KaibabForest….at our usual spot. It was really fun and relaxing…and we actually had about five days of straight camping – really nice. Camp fires weren’t restricted, but it was sooo windy, we had to keep the fire pretty low….oh well, at least we had a fire, right? I mean, c’mon, what’s camping without a camp fire?!
Our next trip was at the very end of June, beginning of July. So, we had about one month to recover from our last trip. This time is was Church Camp. We were somewhere out by Mormon Lake– with no cell service. 😯 I had like a bazillion text messages when we got back home. Anyways…it was LOTS of fun.
We had services in the morning, Ping Pong Tournaments, Archery, Hay Rides…etc. Our theme at camp was “Trusting God”, so we had lots of messages on what’s really trusting God, what’s not, and how you can trust God more in your everyday actions. It was a great time of fellowship and worshipping the Lord.
The only downfall was the rain (which if you know anything about me, you know I don’t like to get wet). Oh and the last night there was like a big fight and drunk people, police and sirens – all involving the campground next to us. Somehow I slept through it (really weird for me, I’m usually a light sleeper)…and I was completely confused in the morning. Haha
Our third trip was to Arizona’s Families for Home Education Conference at the end of July. I already posted about this with Ken Ham (founder of Answers in Genesis) and everything….but it was definitely one of our trips. We were actually gone for about 3 days….two of those days being spent in a chilly air-conditioned building, listening to Ken Ham, touring the exhibit hall, and talking with friends.
For dinner every night while we were there I had a chicken chimichanga, but since I became sick with a horrible flu-ish sickness lasting about a week (starting the night we got back home), I’m not going to eat a chicken chimichanga for a loooong time. My parents tell me it wasn’t the chimichanga, but all I know is now every time I think about it, I get nauseous. Coincidence? I think not. 😉
And right now we’re on our fourth trip! We’re visiting my grandparents…just for the weekend, but it still counts since we’re sleeping in our camper and it took about ten hours of driving put together to get here! 😀
We have been traveling so much more this summer than usual….but it’s all been fun. However, I’m really hoping this is our last trip for the year. I’m quite a hermit and anti-social thank you, and I like to stay home. Away from large crowds….and you know…people. Lol Just give me a few at a time and I’m good! I’m even better if I can stay home. Hahaha
How was your summer? I know it’s not quite over, but schools are starting, and it seems like its pretty much over. Did you take any trips? Or just stay home and chill? (Which, you know, is fab in my opinion…. 😀 )
Leave a comment and let me know! You know I always LOVE comments. They just make my day. Even if you can’t think of anything else, “this post was amazing” works well. 😉
