26 hour layover

Picked Carly up from camp this morning. She was all smiles and chatty - both an indication that she had a good time. Before we got on the road we had to make a pit stop at this super cute snow cone stand.
Carly chose cherry cola and I chose fuzzy navel. Both were really good. We sat outside for a few minutes on these cute diner stools talking about all the fun she had and then headed home. Carly talked nonstop all the way home (about an hour). When asked what was her favorite thing this year, she answered canoeing. This was a surprise since last year it was the only thing she didn't like! Carly brought home this huge pile of good camp mail! She said there were 18 pieces of mail. Given the fact there were only 4 days to receive mail, that's a pretty good daily average. Thanks to Finn, Nonna, MamMam & Grandaddy, Aunt Libba & Uncle Beege, Aunt Kacey and even Gabby for taking the time to send mail! She also brought home this huge pile of dirty {stinky} laundry. I already put the sheets and towels in the washer when I took this picture. She wore way more clothes this year than last year and they are all icky. This is not surprising given the temperature has been in the mid 90's this week with a heat index around 105!
She ate a little lunch.
She turned on a movie.
She climbed on the couch.
She promptly fell asleep.
Just enough time to wash clothes, rest up, and re-pack
to leave for MamMam and Grandaddy's house tomorrow!

Oh the memories!

No other laundry is as bad as CAMP LAUNDRY.

Ah yes, the "sleep away 24 hours" catch up post-camp nap.

Wow, 18 pieces of good mail in 4 days at camp, that's really something! That would have been a camp highlight for me for sure.
