Weekend = Camping

Sam decided to take off Friday and yesterday.  So, we got up Saturday packed up a tent, ice chest, and puppies and decided to go camping.  Every campsite we went to was full, so five hours later we found some sites up by Winter Park.  It was so nice.  Except, we didn't anticipate the temperature dropping so drastically at night, to the 40s!!!  Yikes!!!  So, Sunday morning, Sam took a quick trip into town to buy me a cheap hoodie, and two sleeping bags with fleece linings.  =D  Sunday night was snuggly happiness!   Hehe...
All in all it was a nice weekend.  So relaxing.  We grilled, drank some beer in front of the fire.  I got to sit back and begin a trashy romance novel.  The puppies were able to frolic.  There were no phones, faxes, tv, computers, ahhh, nice.  And the smells were so clean, Christmas like because of all the pines!!  And our campsite was right near a little running creek.  We even spied some beaver damns.  Oh, and I got to sit in my collapsable rocking chair and watch birds and butterflies! 
Though, it was nice to come home yesterday and get a shower!!  We cleaned up, and I made a quick dinner so we could watch "Rock of Love" then "Big Love".  Yes, we like the cheese!!  Then we slept like the dead until the alarm went off this morning at 4:45am....

What you have to remember about Colorado is it's a semi-arid desert. That means just like any other desert, there can be a wide variation between the high and low tempertures between day and night. Much more extreme than in more temperate areas.

You know, it never even crossed my mind. That's something that I never had to think about before. Hehe, boy do we know that now, hehe. =D
We'll definitely be more prepared next time we try it!
