Camping at Haywire Bay Day 1, 3 & 4

It turned out I didn't have to work on Wednesday and the use of a trailer already parked at Haywire was waiting, so off to the campsite we went. I fully admit I'm not much of a camper but we had a great 4 days made much better I think because we slept inside a trailer rather than on the ground in a tent (call me princess if you'd like but that's what I prefer). My parents and our cousins showed up on two different nights with supper so we were pretty spoiled overall. Once again Jackson had a pretty harsh leg injury on his bike (something very very similiar happened last year at Haywire) and once again I let him convince me not to go to emerg. The scars will be gruesome but he doesn't seem to care.
I can't say that I loved it but fun was had and we will most likely do it again next year much to the joy of the kids who are definately campers! It sure makes me appreciate home especially my own bed!
