So! Cabin weekend was awesome!!!! I miss it so much already! I really need to go camping more……
We left Friday night after Moira was done cheering at her game. Grandma and Grandpa showed up as well so they and the kiddos stayed and watched the rest of the game. They had a lot of fun doing it too! We had left and started heading for Chain-O-Lakes! It was dark out by that time and there was a storm rolling in. It was really pretty watching the lightning across the horizon and behind all the trees! I couldn’t get a good picture of the lightning unfortunately.
We arrived at the cabin at around 9:30 and got the car unloaded just in time for the rain! Well, we kind of stuck in it a bit….. We got everything that couldn’t get wet inside just in time and we finished just before it started to pour! I read out on the porch and sat in the swing and read while watching and listening to the storm. It was heaven!
The next morning, Michael and I were the first ones up and everyone else followed shortly after. I helped our friend Jen make biscuits and gravy for breakfast (OMG, SOOOOO GOOD!!!!!!) and then we started playing D&D!!! These are some pictures I took while everyone was finishing eating…….
After breakfast we started playing. We played from around 9 or 10 in the morning until around 12:30 at night! We only took a couple food breaks throughout the day during which, we watched the old Dungeons and Dragons cartoon! It was so funny comparing the cartoon to how things work in the game and I think we all were in agreement that Eric needed to be slapped around a bit because of how whiny and selfish he was 🙂 LOL!
We also had a fun little challenge to keep us going through the game as well! Our friend Austin when to the store in the campgrounds to get some orange juice to go with breakfast and came back with these HUGE jaw breaker type suckers! We started them in the early afternoon and sucked on them for HOURS!!!!
5 out of 7 people finished them! Once we started, we just couldn’t stop. It was like we had to defeat our own personal enemies! It was fun but, our tongues and taste buds paid the price! But, it was worth it!!!!!
Sunday we had to pack up and head home. We didn’t get to go hiking because of the rain and I didn’t get to read a whole lot…… Obviously 😉 It’s all right though. I’ll make up for it this week!
It was a bitter sweet ending to the game this time. We all survived when we expected a couple of us at least to die and we saved the world! We had finished this campaign after over 6 years of playing. We had grown to love our characters after all this time and though we are happy they all lived, we wont be playing them anymore. However, there will still be cabin trips to look forward to as we are starting a brand new campaign with Alex being the DM instead of his brother Travis. I am going to be sad for a little while at not playing Anastrianna anymore but, I am excited to be starting a new character and new campaign. A whole new adventure and I have no idea what to expect. Makes it all very exciting!
