A little DQ can make it all better.

We were supposed to go camping with the Cub Scouts this weekend.  Which in September, when we signed up, sounded like a really good idea.  But now that it's November, and cold, and windy, and cold and ugh, camping.  What was I thinking?  So I was not heartbroken when two  families backed out at the last minute and the trip was postponed until the spring.

And now I'm like, camping?  In the spring?  That sounds wonderful!  I'm in!  Let's do this!  But I know I'll be singing a different tune when it's time to actually sleep on the ground and pee in a latrine.

But not camping this weekend left us some free time so my husband decided we should go for hike.  He wanted to try some place new so we headed for the Piedmont Environmental Center in High Point.

The trail we took was nice - only about two miles.  It weaved through the woods around the shores of High Point City Lake so we had some nice views.

But Sarah decided about half way through the hike that she was over it.  She wanted to get home to work on a project and bugged me about ideas for this project the entire two miles.  Every time I would give her an idea she would say "No. Think of something else."

Maddening.  She's lucky she's so cute and that I really, really love her.

But it's all good because at the end of the hike, we headed for Dairy Queen.

And everyone knows a whiny hike and Dairy Queen trump camping any day.

Dairy Queen really just is the trump card sometimes! :)
