Once again, it’s Friday. Once again, it’s been a crazy week. Did I say crazy? I think maybe cray-zay might suit a little better. It all started Sunday. Sunday began the first-ever Kauffman Family Camping Extravaganza. Our adventure did not exactly get off to an auspicious start. For one thing, Seymour wanted to leave our house by 10:00 a.m. as the campground we were heading to was three hours away. His parents were going to go with us, but they live a good hour and a half south of us, so we couldn’t leave till they arrived at our house, and they were late. Seymour’s mama wasn’t feeling well, so his papa let her sleep in a little late and it was nearly noon by the time they made it to our house. I think we pulled out of our driveway somewhere around 12:30 p.m.
About an hour or so into the trip, possibly a little more, one of the tires on our camper blew out in spectacular fashion. There was no fixing this tire – it was in pieces all over the road. I should have taken a picture of it, but I didn’t think of it at the time. And apparently campers don’t come with spares standard the way cars do, but Seymour is a smart one and bought one when he picked up the camper, so he got the tire changed and we were soon back on the road.
