we had the most amazing labor day weekend. we initially had plans to go to my moms cabin for the weekend. we had been wanting to get away with our pups before things got crazy with our schedules, which is sort of always. also, we are starting ivf next month and this was our last free weekend together until then.
however, it turned out that my mom had double booked the cabin so, of course, we were out! after that we thought we would take the boat and dogs to a lake for the weekend, but then started thinking about snakes and ticks and decided that was also out. so john went out and bought a big two bedroom tent (one for our messy dogs and one for us) and we tried to find a spot on the coast to camp. that didn’t work either. i don’t know what we were thinking trying to find a last minute camping spot on labor day weekend.
so this is what it came down to. the dogs were out and we packed up the canoe with a smaller tent, (yes we went and bought another tent) a camping stove, blankets, the yeti, drinks, food, and johns fishing pool. i am not going to lie, when we talked about going the night before i was very hesitant. i am big into showers and there obviously wasn’t going to be a spot to shower, let alone a spot to even use the bathroom. i was also concerned with weirdos bothering us and also mosquitos and other bugs. but i woke up the next morning feeling excited and i am so glad we went because it was seriously one of the best weekends i have had in a very long time.
