Fire Ring??

Fire ring? Sounds like an STD. But I have found out that it’s something you’d find at a camp ground. I’m a city girl through and thought, so I’m not quite sure how that works.
You see, Familia Martinez is going camping. Well, almost. We’re going to a camp ground and I will be sleeping in a tiny cabin while the Martinez Men sleep in a tent. I. Don’t. Camp. I don’t pee outside and I don’t sleep in tents. I’m making this concession because we haven’t done anything exciting with the kids in a while, and a trip to Disney World just isn’t in the finances. So Hubs had the great idea that we should get back to nature and what not. So now I’m spending my evenings reading about camping for novices and trying to figure out just what to do with a fire ring.
We have plans to go rafting, hiking and horseback riding. And while it’s not what I would have chosen, I find that I’m truly looking forward to it. It’ll be interesting to take the kids to do things we’ve never done, and to get them away from their video games for a few days.
Of course, my iphone will be in my pocket the whole time. I’ll go, but I won’t leave civilization behind completely :)

Watch Yer Booty, Thar Be Pirates

Isaiah ran into a pack of pirates yesterday. From the looks of it, they accepted him into their ranks.
