End of May and Memorial Day

Another exciting event in May was the purchase of our brand new (to us) camp trailer! We searched high and low to find the perfect one, and we finally did. It was located in Oklahoma, but the guy was gracious enough to haul it all the way here to deliver it to us. It's everything we had hoped for. There is bunk room in the front, with 4 individual beds, and in the back is a slide out bed for Cahl and I. The inside is nice and roomy and there is a lot of storage space. We are really happy to have it, and look forward to putting it to good use.

Our first trip with the trailer was up to the cabin for Memorial Day. It was a crowded weekend up there, so it was nice to have our own little spot. The kids of course had a great time with all the cousins and friends, riding the 4 wheelers and dirt bikes. The kids are all especially happy with the zip line. In fact, they were all so excited about it, they tried to convinced me to try it. How hard can it be right? Come on, EVERYone has done it! Alright fine. Trying to be the cool mom that I am, and hide my terror of being off the ground, I agreed to try. And I fell off. Not near the bottom, or even halfway down. No. I fell from the very TOP. I hung on for just long enough to let go and fell flat on my back from 10 feet up. It knocked the wind out of me and I spent the next few minutes crying and making some sort of choking donkey noise while trying to get my air back. So the rest of my weekend was spent high on painkillers and trying not to breath. I came home bruised from the bottom of my butt to the top of my shoulders, with a few cracked ribs. Yay me.
