Bird is the Word

This camping trip post is long overdue. To be completely honest, I had planned on posting yesterday but was seduced by the 2nd book of the Twilight series, New Moon. (I'm already half way through it too.) As I walked in the door from work I immediately saw the big puffy mailer and knew my love had arrived...

As Jason would say, I'm ate up with it.














First day at Camp Livingston, about to hit the trails. That's Baber and me and my big swishy cheeks.














We pretty much had the campsite to ourselves. Thank Jebus we had the camper. After an evening of riding on those dusty trails I wanted nothing more than a semi-normal shower. We heard later that the crew in tents were taking half ass baths from water out of the drums they brought. In the freezing cold. Yeah, not my cup of tea.















Me with my dirty hair and holey ten year old shirt cooking my boys breakfast. I love that camper.















One of the kids that came with us, 18 year old TJ, just happens to be the butt of most jokes. For some reason J and his buddy DJ are relentless in messing with him.

That's J in TJ's tent. Just before this photo J drove around the campsite picking up these abnormally huge pinecones...


















... and filled TJ's tent with them. (Grr..blogger is twisting the photos around again, but you get the idea.) Hey, it was a lot more innocent that some of the other stuff they were coming up with to do to him.














My take on an abstract artistic camping photo. Bud, the beer of choice for riding.














My Baberlove. Stop squinting! You're going to get wrinkles!

Before I go I have to share the reason behind my post title. Does anyone watch Family Guy? Well, its a favorite for me and J. One of the most recent episodes was stuck in my head that weekend, one where Peter is obsessed with the song Bird is the Word. Below is a clip from that episode.

I'm warning you, like we struggled all weekend, you will too. The song will not leave your head once you see this clip.

How cute are you camping. Ok, you win. I see the light, I think I might be pro camper camping after reading about hot showers and wonderful things like stoves. I love the abstract camping photo.

I'd totally go camping except that I'm afraid of lighting an entire forest on fire. But I'm glad you had a good time.

PS, I LOVE FAMILY GUY.
