Gone Camping

Well, we've been camping since Friday. We got back yesterday and haven't really had anything interesting to eat. Oh, that's a lie. I made the chocolate cupcakes out of Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World with the chocolate butter cream frosting. This really is the most amazing chocolate cake recipe. I've also made lemon cupcakes out of that book. They were also wonderful.

Anyway, back to camping. We went to the La Jolla Indian Reserve. Everyone had a great time. Day one we had bagel sandwiches for lunch. For dinner we had veggie hot dogs roasted over the fire. To be frank, hee hee get it, they really sucked. Joe and I worked out to take a bite of broccoli at the same time to avoid the bad hot dog taste but not be hungry.

Day two we had soy yogurt for breakfast with granola. For lunch we had canned vegan chili and toast. For dinner we had pasta with sauce. Bless the camp stove.

Day three we had bagels and faux cream cheese for breakfast. For snacks we kept around fruit, veggies, fruit leather, granola bars, cookies, pb&j, apple sauce, and I our favorite Trader Joe's Spicy Thai Peanuts.

Aside from my sleeping bag still sucking and me being cold, everything went smoothly. We're already planning or next trip. The bike pictured is Isaac's big cousin's, Daylon. Joe showed him how to stand on the back. Yes, I know, no helmet. The ride wasn't repeated. The kids loved being right by the water.

There was a lot of poison oak around but we managed to avoid it. There was also a baby rattle snake. We steered very clear of his hole. Joe scratched himself up pretty good tubing down the river. Those were all our mishaps.

All in all, a successful trip. It's good to be back.
