Circle X

Question: "What's your favorite part about camping?

Answer: "The lack of cell coverage"

P. McGraw

Circle X was once again an opportunity to remember how much I love to go camping with a bunch of 3-5 year olds. At first I was totally wishy washey. Oh, it is going to be a low turnout. oh, I am too tired, oh. There is too much going on in my life right now to go on a camping trip, yada, yada, yada.

But then you get there and then you once again experience how awesome it is to see stars, how awesome it is to hear silence and how awesome it is to watch a bunch of yungins go kooky crazy, not eat anything for days on end, find anything they can do to keep going and just go nutty fun crazy. Sorry, but as a parent, I think there is nothing better.

Circle X is a really pretty site, with a fully shaded all day long table area and quite a beautiful surrounding vista of what Luke called "chocolate covered mountains".

Sleep, nah, eat much, nah, but I think a great time was had by all and I feel down right anzy about Leo Carillo in April, 2015. It is going to be an awesome trip, I can feel it in my bones and I am already designating it the Chris L. memorial Birthday trip, bebecauset is indeed Chris L. birthday that weekend.

Thanks everyone for showing up and a special thanks to the grey fox and the newt who made Circle X a really memorable trip.
