It technically started on Friday, even though due to a family emergency we were able to leave until Saturday morning. Adrian still took Friday off and we were able to spend the morning packing and making sure we had everything done for the week. It was nice not to be stressed trying to do this at night after working all day. Then Friday afternoon I had a great play date with three of Daniel's friends from preschool. We spent about 3 hours at the local pool while Adrian finished up cleaning and packing. We all got a good nights sleep and were ready to hit the road first thing Saturday morning.
Saturday morning our goal was to leave by 8:00am. We were on the road by 7:50! I was so excited to be on the road early. I was hoping to make it to NJ for a friend's daughter's birthday party at 4:30. But we had a lot of long stops on the way and that didn't happen. The boys did pretty good in the car, playing cards, coloring, watching movies & playing the alphabet game. Zak got a little grumpy for the second half, but he didn't have as much to do as the other boys.

I drove them back to the camp ground and Adrian took them to the free ice cream social they were having. I turned around and finally got our sub from WaWa. We finally were able to eat our dinner and get the kids to bed. They did great going to sleep the first night, everyone was asleep by around 10. Adrian & I hung out for a little while, then headed to bed ourselves. We were really tired from the drive and the stress of setting up camp.
I'll leave off there and pick up with our Sunday tomorrow.
