We're going on a bear hunt


This weekend we went camping with Jason's family. And in the spirit of camping, I've decided to give out pointless, yet meaningful (which I know is an oxymoron) awards.

For best story, the award goes to Nick for enchanting us with the tale of "The Topless Wonder."


For more prepared than any boy scout will ever be, the award goes to Adriana for having seriously everything anyone ever asked for, including things you would not expect from a lady who is 7-months pregnant. Way to help a sister out Adriana!


For most fashionable, the award goes to Jason cause that boy rocks dirty denim cut-offs better than any dirty hipster out there.


For cleanest, the award goes to Jeff for being OCD enough to shower at 11 PM every night in cold water because he is incapable of going to sleep dirty.

For best procurement, the award goes to Dave for thinking to obtain and bring a boat.


For biggest talker, the award goes to Tara because it was thanks to her that months ago we even began discussing this camping trip, and had a big hand in keeping it alive, and then bailed on day one because her baby had an ear infection.

For parents of the filthiest child, the award goes to Shawn and Chantell because of this:


For biggest chicken, the award goes to me because when we came in contact with a bear rolling around in the dumpster right across from our campsite in the middle of the night, I was ready to high-tail it back to civilization right then and there.

And for best grandparents of the year, the award goes to Bob and Pam.. by default because they were the only grandparents there. And because they really are the best. And we couldn't have done it
without them.
