Well everyone, it’s finally looking more and more like camp season every day! Today we’ve got a bright and sunny afternoon here in the winter office, and we’ve been enjoying a few days of warm “summer-like” weather. Okay, maybe I’m exaggerating, it’s not QUITE summer yet, but in the Philosophy of Cara, once you start wearing open toe shoes, it’s basically camp time. So hello Birkenstocks, goodbye Uggs!
I have had a super exciting past few days, from my return from the ACA Camping Conference in Atlantic City, to the Taylor Swift Concert in Philadelphia, to a campy dinner in King of Prussia with the usual crew, and a few special guests. I’ll let the pictures do the talking:
Taylor Swift was excellent, and I know there were so many Canadensis kids in the audience! I was really impressed with how great she is live, and I’m looking forward to playing some Taylor covers on my guitar at a campfire now and then! We saw Taylor on Friday night, and then went back out Saturday to meet up with camp friends for dinner at California Pizza Kitchen, and dessert and coffee at the Cheesecake Factory. Our usual group of 4 grew to 9, which was SO exciting, and definitely made for a memorable evening. We laughed harder than I’ve laughed in a long time, and even played some camp games while waiting for our table to be ready. Laughing with camp friends always reminds me why I do what I do every day, and why I love camp so much.
This week in the office has been “wild” (wild is my catchphrase, according to Forti), and the change of season has definitely put the push on the preparations for summer. The Tri-State Camp Conference got everyone seriously pumped up and we all came home with fresh new ideas, ready to make summer 2010 THE BEST SUMMER EVER!
