Camping at Wanroads with the Powells

Best of Friends, Norma and Maddy

We went camping a couple of weeks ago with our wonderful friends, The Powells and their family! They have 3 kids, Tucker, Thad, and Norma, and a dog, Wall-E. Nate works with Jered out on the highway. His wife's name is Bobby. She was a great person to hangout with. I enjoyed getting to know her better. The kids played ball, frisbee, went on a hike, caught butterflies, grasshoppers and bugs, rode Madison's 4-Wheeler, roasted marshmellows, watched movies, played games and had a good time!
It rained a little the first day and they were sleeping in a Tee-Pee. Luckily they brought tarps to cover themselves. The second night it rained and POURED!!!!! I have never seen so much rain at once, especially while camping! So needless to say, we invited them into our trailer for the night and there we all slept, all 9 of us and a dog! It was a "bonding" experience with the Powell family, and it was a LOT of fun! The kids went to bed and the adults stayed up playing games until 1:00 a.m. Next time I think we'll pay more attention to the weather forecast before we head for the hills
