Late Summer Camping trip, August 2010

I drove to Sacramento
last August 29 and 30, 2010
for a late Summer Camping weekend.
This is my third camping trip
for the year.

It seems this camping event was a very disorganized
trip for me. I was so in a hurry to head to Sacramento
for the Camping weekend that I forgot some essentials
such as sleeping bag, pillow. I arrived in Sacramento
late as well, hay.

Good thing my sister-in-law
brought a Summer Sleeping bag to share to me.
But mind you, the early morning cold was overwhelming.

I didn't bring nor cook food as well.
Quite a change from my usual routine of cooking good Camp Food
when I bring my kids along. See what the absence of our children
can do to our lives?

This time around, I didn't bring the kids to the camping trip
because School started a Wednesday before the weekend event.
Another planning blunder on my part.

Nevertheless, it was a good time to get together
with my brother Fidel, my siter-in-law ASte Marivic
and their friends.

It is a good departure from the hassle and bassle
that we face from everyday life. To forget the stresses of life
if but for a moment.

School year 2010-2011 starts for our kids

Oh my, I can't believe Summer vacation for our kids is over. Today marks the start of School year 2010-2011. At least for our part of the country.

They start a new chapter in the book of life. They've been anticipating this start of school year: no more white, red and blue uniforms; school is nearby, new friends, lots of changes.

Let the school bell ring. Time to go to school.
