    Sounds like fun, Karla! I’m glad your weather is finally warm enough to get out there! We have plans to camp in North Carolina this weekend, but the weather is looking dismal. That’s the one downside to tent camping; the weather is more of a factor. We may go and just deal with the rain for as long as we can!
