Our camping trip was wonderful despite the yellow jacket sting I received. While I'm extremely thankful I do not have a life threatening reaction to insect stings, I have some localized reactions that are an issue. The swelling covers a huge area, it's all red and puffy, hot to the touch (localized fever), and blisters have formed. And it's not only painful, it keeps me from doing things on my To Do list!
(Is everyone feeling sorry for me now?)
Oh, but the trip was fun! Great food, river swimming, kayaking, water rafting down the rapids, campfires, some light hiking, and best of all, the wonderful company of friends. The kids will remember this trip for a long time to come. And it was a good opportunity to practice some campfire cooking in the dutch oven. Each family took one meal and prepared it for the entire group. Mine was a Mountain Man Breakfast (so healthy! LOL!) along with tortillas.
I also had a chance to go to a county fair and see the Dairy Goats being judged. It was lots of fun to see if I could place them before the judge did and then compare my results to how they actually placed. Since there were two judges and two rings, the goats were actually judged twice and you could see how different judges placed them as well. I was particularly interested in the Nigerian Dwarfs for my daughter. Perhaps we'll add one to our Kinders so she can actually show in the fair next year. Oh, and the LaManchas are always fun!
How was you're week?
