Screaming at the top of my lungs this past weekend to cheer on my pal Boomerang wasn’t the only highlight of my trip to Maryland. Oh yes, I got to go camping with my family!
After helping pack the horse trailer – Boomerang, mom, dad and me headed south for the weekend.
I love camping because it means I get to spend lots of time outdoors doing manly outdoor things….like collecting sticks.
Helping dad build the campfire is also quite fun – although it is a shame that all those perfect chewing sticks will soon be going up in flames.
But, it was quite chilly on Saturday night, so I was happy to sacrifice a few of my sticks for the sake of warmth.
This time I got to test out my new camping tent – as the last one I accidentally burst a hole through when I couldn’t find the door….oops.
The good news is my new tent passed my rigorous test and I was extra warm and toasty all night inside mom’s sleeping bag.
When I wasn’t cheering on Boomerang or doing camping things I chowed down on french fries and fruit smoothies in the spectator stands.
I also got to help mom score some of the other divisions. Although to be honest I did use it as an excuse to take a nap.
At the end of the weekend Boomerang thanked me for coming along to cheer him on.
He even showed his appreciation by taking me on a pony ride – isn’t he the sweetest?
