Camping...

This last week we went camping with my family- 27 of us were there, missing just 5. Next year we'll be bigger, as 2 of us are expecting right now. Only the 4 older siblings are married and have children, so in another 15 years we are going to be one huge family. Here is just us outside our cabin, we had a good time. It rained and snowed and then finally the last day we were there the sun came out and the guys caught some fish- so we were able to have our fish fry after all. :-)
We each ate our own breakfast and lunches and then met at my parents cabin for dinner, we took turns cooking and had quite the tasty variety.
We had:
Green chili enchiladas
Spaghetti and french bread
Chili and corn bread
Tortilla soup (going to have to get this recipe!)
Fish fry and hot dog roast

One sister-in-law made some great salsa and another one made some brownies that really impressed me- it was just a boxed chocolate cake and a 15 oz. can of pumpkin. It was nice and warm and was very close to a traditional brownie. Apparently low fat as well- but how nice to not have to take eggs and oil along!
We didn't have to rough it too bad- our cabin had 2 double beds, a fridge, electric oven/range and a wood cookstove for heat. We did have to walk to the bathrooms, but other than that it wasn't rough.
I will admit that I packed bagels and cream cheese for breakfast (ok- I brought 2 pancake mixes, that I mixed before we left- but that's all the cooking I did!) while my s-i-l's showed me up with pancakes, bacon and eggs. At least we couldn't smell it or my family would have been jealous!

I'm so glad you had so much fun! Eating breakfast and lunch on your own was a great idea - giving each family time together as well a big-group time.
