Well, the 3rd Annual Ridley Camp Out Extravaganza was a success! This was the best year we've had weather wise. It was a perfect 80 degrees, sunny, a little breeze. Just perfect. I did all of my shopping on Wednesday and made made everything Thursday night so that Friday afternoon I could just ice down the coolers and go! This year I made pasta salad, taco dip, and anti pasta salad. We had cookies, puppy chow, lots of hot dogs, brats, and burgers, oh, and a lot of beer! We rode 4-wheelers, shot rifles, listened to nothing but country, and hung out by the campfire. What I was really stoked about was our DoubleNest ENO hammock we finally got to use. Thanks to me blogging about it around Christmas time, my little sister in law mentioned it to her mom and we all go one as our family gift this past Christmas. This is the first time we were able to use it and we all loved it!
I love our property so much and I'm going to miss using it as a getaway once our house is there. Of course we will live there permanently which is my dream, but it is nice to have a place to go to relax and get away from cell phone reception and just be with our friends and family!
Lastly, I want to wish everyone a happy and safe Memorial Day and take a minute to thank all of the brave me and women who have fought and died for this country and for our freedom.
