Three beautiful things from the camping trip/music festival:

1. The blueberry pancakes Mike makes for breakfast on the campstove griddle.

2. Having my sunburnt skin misted with cool water by two small children.

3. Shelley and I intend to stay down at the music on Friday night when the guys return to camp. Instead, it begins to sprinkle and we decide to head up early. The sprinkles don’t turn into actual rain, so after sending the kids and the guys to bed, we decide to mosey back down to the midway for a late night cup of hot chocolate. Just as we arrive, the skies open up and the rain pours down. By the time we walk back to the campsite, we are thoroughly soaked. (My sneakers only just dried today.)

One of my birthday presents was a gift card of unknown amount for Barnes and Nobles. In between Harry Potter and Ratatouille this weekend we slipped into B&N to see what they had to offer to add to my collection that already overfills the shelves.

I was drawn to the cover of Ella Enchanted, and the jacket sounded interesting. I recall there was a movie made (IMDB says it was all the way back in 2004). I couldn’t remember whether you had mentioned reading that or not.

I’m halfway through The Goose Girl. Shannon Hale is wonderful.

Sounds great – I love camping. I wish I could get away from work more often on the weekends to go!
