It was the most comfortable night I’ve ever spent camping…but that’s not saying a whole lot 🙂 I can say that I was neither too hot nor too cold, except for those couple of times I woke up and my butt cheeks felt numb ;). And those little pads they sell to put underneath your sleeping bag, make quite a difference on the ‘ol hipbones. I crawled out of our tent to see this:
The rising sun and fog over the mountains. A couple of sweet sleeping faces:
And my husband getting breakfast started on the fire:
I am willing to “rough it” when it looks this good 🙂 We had eggs, sausage, cheese toast, and coffee,
And apparently Mary Aplin’s night was too rough to feed herself. Thankfully, Sister was there to help…as always.
We took a walk through the fields,
And then we broke camp and spent the rest of the morning getting prepared to tube down the Madison River.
I didn’t dare take my camera with me in the water, but here’s a shot of some other tubers. Apparently it’s quite the past-time, and people float on all types of things…including air mattresses 🙂
As we lolled down the cool, rolling river, underneath the big Montana sky, with mountains towering on either side of us, I wished for my sisters. Taylor, Caroline, Kendall–it was our kind of paradise. A sport that revolves around laying out 😉 We L.O.V.E.D. all three glorious hours!
That night, tuckered out from camping, and sun, and water, we had a low-key night. Mrs. Ohs taught us how to make sushi, and we watched Willow while we ate her favorite strawberry ice cream.
