The Camping Trip


The camping trip was fine until miss Naomi got sick. It was 9:30 pm when I got Naomi into her sleeping bag and lied down beside her. She was drinking her milk and I was singing to her – trying to coax her to sleep. When all of a sudden she sat bolt upright and proceeded to barf all over herself, the sleeping bags, pillows, the tent and on me. It was everywhere. And we were in the dark, in the middle of the woods.
By 10:30 pm we had packed up and were heading home. Thankfully I had brought a ton of garbage bags so we just threw all the pillows, sleeping bags, air mattresses, clothes, etc… into them to deal with at home.
On Sunday we had the lovely job of washing everything. The washing machine was going nonstop all day. We had to put the tent up in the yard to air it out …
It took the entire day but we got everything clean and packed away for the next time we decide to embark on a little family fun …

So sorry to hear that Naomi got sick...I couldn't think of a worse place to be when you need to clean up barf....no sinks, no washers and dryers!

So glad that she is better!

Wow where did all that hair come from on Naomi? When we were coming home from VN Lily barfed on S 1 hour into a 12 hour flight. Our extra clothes were gate checked, so she had to smell like formula/barf for the next 11 hours until we got the LAX. Not an experience I want to do again, at least that part!

Barfing can really break up a weekend. Sorry to hear but I hope camping attempt #2 goes better!

Oh yuck11 I'm so sorry you guys had to end your trip so soon. There is no worse place to be sick than when you're camping.

Glad Naomi's feeling better though!

I also can't think of a worse place to have that happen.  I thought when my daughter got sick when we were in line at a restaurant and then in the rental car was bad, but Naomi topped that!Glad she is feeling better.

OH NO! Poor little sweety pie! And poor you to have to deal with it under those conditions!
Hope she felt better after all was said and done.
