a dirty getaway

Over a week ago we wanted a little adventure so we went camping.  Last October was the first time we camped out as a family but it was at Camp Geronimo with my brother's stake so there were toilets and food was provided.  This time we did everything au naturel (and by that I mean 'in the natural state' not 'naked'!)  We invited some family to join us and we had a wonderful, dirty time!  The only thing that could have made it better was a camp fire but since we are in a drought we did just fine with camping stoves.
The best part about camping is escaping virtual reality and taking time to enjoying life:  fresh air,beautiful scenery, and family.  Not to mention excellent meals cooked by the men.  We went home a different color thanks to caked on dirt but it was all worth it just for one night.  Andrew wants to camp two nights next time but I don't think I can manage that long without a proper shower.  What about you?
