The weekend before last we went camping in Petoskey with the Wanous and Somasi families. We left home later than planned on Thursday, so we arrived at the campground around 9 PM and put up the tent in the dark. The Wanouskis arrived around 11:30 PM, and we listened to them do the same...finishing around 1 AM.
Friday morning the Moores took a bike ride from the campground to downtown Petoskey (about 5 miles). We attended part of a concert in the park and then met the Wanous family at Julienne Tomatoes Deli and Bakery (Lisa's choice).

After lunch we (traveling by bike) and the Wanouskis (traveling by van) planned to meet again at a park by the waterfront. However, a major thunderstorm intervened. We took refuge in The Little Traverse History Museum while the Wanous family waited in out in the van. Afterwards, we spent a little time at the park before heading home pretty quickly because we were worried about prospects of another thunderstorm and also wondering what the first storm did to our campsite (which, though not the lowest place in the campground, was next to a bit of a hill).
Our desire to get back to the camp site was not so urgent to prevent us stopping at Bob-In Again along the bike path for frozen custard.
It turned out that since the floor of our tent isn't water proof, the water just ran between the tarp on the ground and the tent and soaked the floor. Next time the tarp will go inside the tent.

Today was the first day of second grade. My teacher's name is Mrs. Burtch. We had recess 3 times today! One in the morning, one at lunch time, and one in the afternoon. For lunch I had a PB&J pack, tomatoes, and a Capri Sun. Tomorrow is the second day of school! Gnarly man!
Today was my first day of kindergarten. My teacher's name is Mrs. Ribble. Some of my friends in my class are Parker, Jeffrey, and Jacob. Today I played outside, went on a tour around the school, and got to draw a picture of me. For lunch I had a peanut butter and jelly pack, a Capri Sun, and strawberries.
