Thursday Rachel had her first prom so I was a busy girl with that. She got her hair and makeup done at a local spa.
On the way home I suddenly remembered that the girl is supposed to supply the boutonniere! It's 3pm when I have this sudden epiphany. I called Kroger and did a little begging and they got one ready for me. Whew. And boy did I feel old all of a sudden. How could I forget this?
Rachel met up with a bunch of friends for a pre-prom dinner at Olive Garden. Here she is with her date:
|Sorry the pic is so fuzzy.|
Next morning we sleep in and finally start getting our gear together for the camping trip at Huntsville State Park. After over two hours in traffic we arrive and get set up.
|Home Sweet Home. "Welcome" mat is an alligator that says "Warning: Trespassers will be delicious!" :D|
|Sometimes you need a helping hand to hang lights in high places. Rachel on Chuck's shoulders and in the background is a friend who came to see us.|
|The view of the lake from the campsite was beautiful. And we got a constant breeze.|
|This little titmouse stayed around us the entire weekend. Sometimes it would land right at your feet. It was gathering food for its babies. :)|
|Campsite at night. Peaceful and relaxing sipping on some bubblegum vodka and listening to Marty Robbins.|
|Saturday we hiked for about 4.5 miles. Beautiful day. The morning actually started out a little chilly!|
|Rachel making friends with the locals.|
|It got pretty cool at night. In the morning we'd all be huddled in blankets and sleeping bags.|
Charlie and I had some serious allergy issues going on. *sniff sniff*
It was a great trip and I think we were all a little sad to see it end. You sure do sleep good in your own bed after being on the ground for a couple of nights!
Glad I'm home. Now to get back to exercise, low carb, and blogging.
Edit: My head feels so fuzzy because of these darn allergies. So if I said anything that didn't make a lot of sense it's because there's not a lot of sense going on in my head right now. :) Probably not the best time to blog, eh?
