Camping Trip Part 1

Camping Trip Part 1

1

I meant well with this camping trip, I really did. It took long enough to persuade Julie-Ann to venture into the outdoors. Aka, grandma’s backyard. But after promising her unlimited icecream for the rest of the summer, she reluctantly agreed.

2

I frugally packed all the necessities while Julie-Ann packed with reckless abandon. Her room was a sea of pink and Isabelle was confined to one small corner on the bed where the pink was pushed away.

3

Standing in the backyard I surveyed the gear. My stuff fits into one backpack and then there was the camp stove, food, pillows, sleeping bags, and a tent. Julie-Ann was behind me lugging her huge suitcase across the lawn.

4

“Why did I agree to this torture?! Why?” the overdramatic diva complained. She sat down with a huff and then looked at the sky moaning.

5

I sighed, why didn’t I take Tammy up on her offer? It would have been more hassle-free. “Let’s start setting up this tent Julie-Ann.”

6

She looked up at me and blinked. “Seriously?” she asked. I turned away, reminding myself to give Julie-Ann more chores when she got home. “Fine.”

7

Ten minutes later I finally had the tent standing upright and steady. The camp stove was set on a table and the sleeping bags laid out. Julie-Ann was taking selfies on the grass, doing nothing productive.

8

“Alright drama queen,” I called her over. “Let’s start supper.” She plodded over, stuffing the phone in the back pocket of her pink shorts.

9

“I’ll grab the hotdogs,” She informed me.

While she disappeared into the tent, I heard the screen door creak open and Ginger bounded out in the direction of us.

10

I fired up the grill and Julie-Ann came out of the tent, hotdogs in hand. I spied the rock to late and Julie-Ann toppled over, head over heels.

11

The hotdogs flew through the air and landed at Ginger’s feet. “Julie-Ann…” I groaned. “That was our only food.”

12

She shot me a nervous glance. “Oops.”

So what do you think of my new photostory? It’s only 2 parts and I plan to post them on time. Unlike Trying to Trust where you’re waiting for the last part. I might combine the 2 parts in 1 post as I have everything all planned out and stuff. So stay tuned for that.

Have a great summer!
