I hope you all had a good weekend. Ours was busy, and definitely eventful. Here are some views from this afternoon.
We were at an Ent family reunion campout over the weekend, about a half hour to the south of the Shire. Our little hobbit clan went out to the campground for the day yesterday, and then came home to sleep. (In true hobbit fashion, I prefer the comfort of my bed to that of a tent or even a primo camper like my in-laws all have. I also prefer being able to take a hot shower too.) And then we went back out again this morning.

Thankfully, there was no major damage done to any of the campers (one awning took a hit), and even more thankfully no one was hurt. After a very long 20 minutes, the wind eased a bit and the rain slowed enough for my Beloved to come out from his brother's camper to get us. We spent another 15 minutes all crammed into the camper before we could head back out and clean up. And man was it ever a mess. There were a lot of jokes about finding chip bowls and playing cards two towns away.
We were blessed with some great sunshine after the storm, and the rest of our time together was pretty tame. We all got sunburned (me most of all), ate a lot of great food, and had a lot of fun. The kids stayed up way past their bedtime, got immensely dirty, and had an awesome time. And so did we.
