We're going to use air quotes here because we didn't really camp. We had planned on staying overnight, but when it came down to it we decided to head home to our soft, warm beds instead of pitching tents in the rain to sleep on the ground. The deciding factor was when we realized we forgot tarps. That plus we were borrowing tents and didn't want the added hassle of making sure to get them all dried out (rain was in the forecast for days) before returning them. That plus the fact that we had a lot to do Saturday and were planning to head back early-ish anyway. That plus we really like everything about camping except the actual sleeping in a tent on the ground part. So, air quotes. "Camping."

We joined a group of friends from church and headed to Frozen Head State Park one fine Friday evening. It rained the entire drive there, but when we pulled up at the pavilion where our crew was gathering for dinner, it had trickled off to an occasional drizzle. Mostly the rain just made everything look misty and beautiful.

We visited, played on the playground, ate dinner, caught crawdads, and sang a few tunes before calling it a night. We look forward to "camping" again sometime soon.
