Bacon, scrambled eggs cooked in grease, toast, jelly, FATBACK! Oh my, I love fatback! And coffee... coffee always taste better when you are camping. Why is that?
After breakfast... a walk through the campground and board games.
There is something about camping that brings out my love for board games. Not the games that require you to think about anything in particular or even care about winning (ie. Monopoly)… I'm talking about the mindless board games that you can play while having a conversation with your mom and nursing a baby. Where it's nearly impossible to cheat unless your name is Rhonda and you throw two dice after space 95 in Snakes and Ladders instead of one to see which one sticks.
Of course, Get-Together-Games surpass all board games. While they may require more thought, and the conversation sticks to what is happening in the game - (although as I found out, you can still nurse a baby but it does take more effort than normal…) - they are SO much fun! There is nothing that will get you laughing so hard your stomach hurts using dice and pawns… but combine 2 part parents who've never played before, one part tired bundled up baby, one part annoyed wife, and a know-it-all yankee on a front porch - at night - in the middle of the woods - playing Taboo… pure belly aching bliss.
Well, it was great while it lasted… but all good things must come to an end - and it's back to work and back to reality.
