Let me tell you, I don't know why we waited so long to buy an air mattress. Foam pad, be gone. I didn't wake up at 4 am with aching muscles. This is a definite improvement. Breakfast, on the other hand, needed some help.
In preparing to go camping, I thought I would make up my own pancake mix so all we had to do is add water and eggs. It was a good idea, but the execution was lacking. The powered milk, well, I can't remember when I opened it originally. It did not mix in with the other ingredients at all, and when the pancakes were cooked up- there were these dried milk bombs that exploded and tasted gross in your mouth. Sigh. You win some, you lose some.
And since I know everyone is as fascinated by bubbling mud as we are- here's a video of it.
We stopped for lunch and opted for crackers, apples, and cheese instead of another peanut butter sandwich. There's only so much of that a person can take. We had some inquisitive birds check us out.
The clouds were amazing. They provided nice contrast, I thought.

Time for more driving. The prairie is beautiful.
You can see it has started raining and hailing at this point in our day.
Kids in sleeping bags, who didn't want to go to sleep.
