optimus sleeping bag

it all began with a crazy idea.
the thinkers and thinkees sat outside enjoying another beautiful evening and said to one another, "hey, let's go camping this weekend!" all schedules and calenders were checked. our people called their people. we facebooked about it. it was made an official activity. preparations were made (we bought these awesome sleeping bags that totally zip together and transforms to make one super sleeping bag - cool - thanks kyle) and that friday we and some friends were on our way. we went to a small piece of land up hobble creek canyon owned by a friend. we initially weren't quite sure if we were in the right place and feared getting shot for trespassing, so jake and i hid in the car and bravely sent our wives to scout out the land. once we were reassured it was the right place, we set up our tents and cassidy earned her fire making merit badge and got the blaze going. smores (with a slight twist thanks to jake's world famous recipe) and other fatty snacks were roasted. i got burnt by a starburst - can't say i ever thought i'd say that. :( well it got pretty cold pretty quickly that night, and while we entertained ourselves with games for a little while, the temperature got the best of us and we hurried off to our tents. it was fun climbing into a sleeping bag together. being married rules! :) no worries - the story isn't turning "r" from here - it was way too cold for any hankey pankey. but the cold also meant we didn't sleep too well, which was the only drawback of the trip. we arose the next morning and were happily warmed by the glorious rising sun. we enjoyed a delicious meal prepared by jake. our wonderful chef was even clever enough to serve the breakfast promptly at noon so we were warm enough to enjoy it. ;)
well long story made short - we went camping. we maybe jumped the gun a little early as we would have liked it to be a little warmer, but it was a lot of fun anyways. thanks jake, katie, jordan, cassidy, and, of course, my beautiful wife amber. why are your feet always so cold? :)
