My Camping Weekend...

So, as some of you may remember from my splish splash nail art post, I went on a float trip. A weekend that is spent camping, partying, floating on the river and having a blast with friends. I thought I would share some of those moments with you. Don’t pay any attention to the quality of the photos as they were taken with a water proof disposable camera, by people that had a LOT to drink.

We packed up the car and headed down to the camp ground, trying to get there before the storm so we could set our tent up. However, after having to turn around twice and stop for food once our 1 ½ hr trip turned out to be 45 minutes longer than we hoped. We arrived at the camp ground and they told us it just stopped raining, so whew dodge it! We go it and check in and just as we walk out side it starts to drizzle – no big deal but then when you looked into the sky, it was scary looking.

  
The sky on the way down...

We made it down to the camp site and was able to get a pop up tent up to stand under, which we jokingly used as a garage. It’s so nice to bring your beater car down so you don’t mess up your good cars. Anyways we all stood under the pop up for about 30 mins before all hell broke loose and we all sprinted for our cars. It rained sooooo hard the site started to flood. Then I noticed that the pop was collapsing due to collecting all the rain. I jumped out and was trying to dump the water out, so it didn’t break the pop up. Then my brother and boyfriend came running over to help but they were talk enough to take the top off and guess where at that water landed??? You guess it, on me. About 20 mins later the rain slowed down and I was already soaked so I just cracked open a beer and hung out in the rain LOL!

 
Just being silly before the downpour...

Saturday morning we woke up around 6:30 am thanks to some noisy campers next to us. Made breakfast and got ready for the float. Loaded up onto the bus (that takes you to where you start) and cracked my first beer at 9:30 am. There are only a FEW times that I will crack a beer that early; Mardi Gras, St. Patrick’s Day and float trips. The float was only 4.5 miles long, but from stopping and partying so much we didn’t finish until 6:00 pm and then ½ of the group stayed down and partied in the water for another 2 hours.

  
Here are shots of what it looks like on the river...

We had sooo much fun; if you ever get the chance get your friends together, pack a cooler and head to the river!

I know this post had nothing to do with beauty, but I wanted to share more of who I am with you!!

Hope you all have a fabulous day!!!

Oh my god, I laughed a lot harder than I should at that car/tent picture. That's just too priceless, but I know the feeling. I don't think I've ever gone camping and not had it piss rain the whole time. Looks like you still managed to have a good time though! :)

Aw that looks like fun! My father-in-law is taking my daughter on Saturday and the hubby and I were talking about going tubing just to do something different together. This may have talked me into it!

@ Meredith: Girl you have NO idea! I was laughing so hard I was crying. People would drive by stop and look at us like we were crazy. Thats ok though!

@ Star: You totally should! I'm hoping we can make it back to the water one more time before summer is over but working 6 days a week I don't know if I'll be able to... oh well, there is always next year...
