This is the ride that Cameron and I went on...I told him it would be the last time for me..lol...
This is our campsite...

We went camping the week-end before last..I took two days of vacation. It was wonderful to have a few days of not having to answer my darned work phone..Although I do have to say, I did check my phone a few times to make sure everyone had checked in...lol..I'm going to break myself from that habit..lol...

We had to put our tent up in the rain..NOT fun...it was also very windy out..so that didn't make things any easier..
We were happy to finally get it done..we didn't put our stuff in there until it dried out..
The next day we did some things away from camp...when we returned, the tent was almost completely collapsed..lol...we hadn't put the connectors on right..but we got it figured out and fixed..

We were in the Dells and received free tickets to one of the water parks...so we spent some time there..that was a lot of fun...

We never did make our dinner on the campfire..we decided to go the more relaxing route and eat out...lol...

It was a good time and certainly didn't last long enough..

This last week-end, I finally was able to have Cameron over..I had Paris here too because I had to go to work..When I got home at 6:00am, Cameron was already up. He was very understanding about my needing to get a little sleep before we started our day..

I had taken the boys with me the night before to meet my friends at a small church festival..
Paris isn't into the rides..but Cameron loves them..So, we went on a few..he played one of the games..We had something to eat..
After leaving there, we went to Joe and Lisa's house, minus Paris..he just wanted to come back to my house so he could play his game..lol..
Joe and Lisa have a great pond in their backyard..It's still kind of cold though, so Cameron just played in the sand on the beach..he had a great time...

Destiny was sure it was HER turn to come over..so I told her that I would write it on my calendar that she was next...lol..when they came to get Cameron, I'll be darned if she didn't look at my calendar and let me know that I hadn't written it down...lol..I did it while she watched...

Her birthday was June 1st..I didn't get a chance to see her..They are having a surprise birthday party for her next Saturday..so of course I want to take her presents to that..but I felt bad that she had to wait..I didn't want her to think I had forgotten her...I told her that I had to wait for her present to get here...she didn't seem concerned about her present..she only seemed concerned about her turn for coming over...it makes me happy to know that spending time with me is more important than getting a present...pretty nice..

Work has still been hectic..training people..people not even showing up for training and giving the newly acquired restaurant a final clean..We start regular cleaning there tomorrow night..ugh..not looking forward to it..but that's life in the big city..lol...

I did have some great news...I got a $3000.00 a year raise...AND they are going to get a part time manager to handle the restaurants...that is the BEST news yet...
It might take a couple of months, but they are doing it...I had hoped it would happen before summer is over so I could enjoy it, but not sure that will happen. Keeping fingers crossed..lol...

I guess that's it for news..time to get some stuff done...
Hope everyone has a great week!!
