The story is really too long to tell so I'm going to pick out the lowlights for you:
Friday Night at Frenchmans - SUPER HOT, not cooling off!
Saturday Morning - SUPER HOT, poor Calli!
Saturday Afternoon - Mom takes Grant to her house for the night because he's complained for the 300th time that his feet are dirty. She has pity, we don't so much. (HIGHLIGHT)
Saturday Evening - Caught in a downpour with Calli while fishing, we run a half mile to the car and join 75 bugs inside who also don't want to get wet.
Saturday Evening part 2 - Stuck in the car hiding from the rain. Calli is having the BEST time of her life and keeping us entertained.
Saturday Night - It's official, the inside of our new tent is SOAKED so we end up packing up DURING the end of the downpour. If we had Grant during this time this would have been 80 times worse so God looks out for us again! I mean, He could have made it sunny but I don't expect that weather patterns should revolve around my happiness.
Saturday Night/part 2 - Back in Reno, we arrive at our empty house in Lemmon Valley at 10pm with a Little Ceasar's pizza since our awesome dinner plans were rained out. It's 20 minutes closer and has an empty garage for our wet mess. We drop the muddy stuff, bathe, and crash.
Sunday Morning - Go home and unpack
Sunday Noon - Watch pro volleyball. Pack for Tahoe. Grant's friend has a birthday party at Sand Harbor.
Sunday Afternoon at Tahoe - Arrive late to the party but just in time for the RAIN! We last long enough to eat a hot dog in the rain and then abort, running with Calli to hide in the bathrooms. It is coming down!
Sunday Evening - EVERYTHING is wet and sandy but my weekend has sucked so hard and the friends we were with are so great that we just keep hanging around. Finally it clears and we get 2 hours of a perfect beach evening. Wow, I needed that!
So once again we have a camping adventure for the books. No fish to speak of but I saved 13 out of 15 worms for the garden. I used to be able to kill them but my mommy heart is just making it harder and harder. Sad eh?
And now we are thinking about going to the park to play volleyball. We already had a huge thunder and hail storm this afternoon so maybe we're safe?? But we promised Calli we would stop running with her in the rain so maybe we should stay home!
