Getting ready for bed! Woo

We got to the campsite and immediately checked in like we were supposed to. After chatting with the camp host for a little bit we decided we'd better get at setting stuff up. Jaime and I set up the tent while Britney her friend and Kayla set up food, chairs, etc. We fought the tent for about an hr, hey we couldn't figure out the overhead tarp thingy!! We're girls pardon us!! We got everything out of the cars and put it in the tents and since I hate hate hate junebugs we made sure the tent was zipped up tight. We don't want or need any little uninvited friends with us tonight.

We then decided to go to a presentation the park rangers we're having on insects, animals, etc in the park at 7pm. Well that was interesting and very brief so we went back to camp and decided to eat dinner before they had the constellation presentation.

Me & Rachel goofing around (aka setting up camp)
I've always loved the stars and thought it would be fun just to be able to star gaze for a bit. We had some hot dogs (and a few roasted marshmallows) and off we went to be astronomers. The park ranger did a great job and pointed out some well known constellations, which kept everyone interested and then moved on to some no so known constellations that were a bit harder to find. We all had fun and enjoyed the hour long presentation and went back to our camp site chatting about Orion :)

After returning everyone chowed down on the marshmallows and we sat around the campfire chatting for a few hours before we went to sleep. Tomorrow we're planning on viewing the mill and museum.
