I've always wanted to go, but have never been able too because of summer classes or summer jobs. But I'm a teacher now, which means I have nothing better to do on my summer days than sit around and eat bon-bons.
So I left with my mom and Aunt Christy the day before the team was leaving. We go early to grocery shop for the team and have dinner ready when they arrive the first evening.
We shopped for 55 people. For 5 days. With a small SUV and a carry-top. Obviously the shopping was easy. Three hours and SEVEN carts later we started packing the car....wondering when we would have to call it quits and let the campers pick up the rest on the way up.
But thanks to Christy and her organization skillz, we fit all of it in.
The next five days were mostly spent working: cooking, running around to the team cabins and restocking, doing yucky boys' laundry, more grocery shopping, and TONS OF DISHES.
|Christy was usually doing something like this.|
|My mom planking on a hike. she.is.awesome.|
|We hiked down to the CO River and right after we got there these golden retrievers emerged one-by-one and ran into the river...I think there were 4 or 5 in all.|
Exhausting trip? Yes. Fun? So much. I loved getting momma and aunt time. And then hubby time.
We shall make this a yearly tradition.
