This happened a little while back, when we were up in the beautiful BWCA, attempting to camp despite the on-again-off-again rain.
Setting: in the cabin my parents had rented.
Nea: Night-night ou-dide? (Sleep outside?)
N: Yeah, in a tent!
N: Because it's fun. Why, don't you want to?
But we did (Well, for the one night. We had hoped for 2, but the weather was not ideal.), and it was fun yet a little damp. Right before Boo fell asleep she said she wanted to go to a hotel, but that was just a fleeting thought, thankfully. We were not eaten by bears. Nor did we go to the outhouse in the middle of the night and fall off a cliff. We also did not get mushroom poisoning, despite eating one Reizker (German, which is how I've learned the little mushroom lore I know) - Lactarius Deliciosus (Latin) - saffron milk cap or red pine mushroom (English).
We had to split the one specimen seven ways, so the portions were very very modest. I had heard about this particular type of mushroom my whole life, so it was nice to finally get a taste. Very deliciosus, indeed.
Off for kids' fall break
