DD1's first experience of camping...
DD1 went and joined some of her friends at Kaitoke Regional Park yesterday afternoon to 'camp out' for the night... I sent her a txt at 10pm asking how she was going, her reply:
10.15pm "Camp's so cool mum! Haha everones been really nice. Have a good night xoxo"
next text received from DD1
7.42am "Last night was hell, ended up sleeping in the 2 older boys cars cos the tents broke! Weathers still horrible now :("
So by 9am, DH and I were there to pick her and one of the friends up. The weather had turned in the night to a gusty, wet nightmare. Driving along the road to their campsite a huge tree had toppled in the wind too. Not a great first experience for camping. They are warm and snug back home catching up on their missed sleep.
On the plus side.... today is a PERFECT day for quilting!! which is what I'm about to do.
Have a happy day.
