Since I couldn't bring you all along on our camping trip last week, I thought I'd give you a peek into the inner workings of...
...the Grasshopper Family, on vacation.
First, spend lots of time, energy, and money setting up a high-tech and luxurious home-away-from-home at the most glamorous spot you can think of.
In this case, Lincoln Rock State Park, on the Columbia River,
with a view of Turtle Island.
Spare no expense to provide yourself with gracious and comfortable accommodations.
Spend every moment in earnest and industrious exercise of both body...
... and mind.
Eat nothing but the finest and healthiest local cuisine.
Store up memories of all your happy moments of family
And, feed your intellect by conducting science experiments.
(Yes, the flames are blue.)
Come with us, next time?!
