2 the epic eaton family camping trip of 1988

what you need to know: 

*burvil kept buying a loaf of bread, leaving it in the van, going to the grocery, buying a loaf of bread, leaving it in the van, going to the grocery... when we got to the camp ground, we had eight loaves of bread.

*photographic proof: we really did ride around in joe's van sitting on plastic lawn chairs in the back.

*in the middle of the night joe's air mattress sprung a leak. the entire rest of the night, he and burvil argued back and forth about her sleeping on the leaky mattress, him not wanting her to, him not being able to sleep on the leaky mattress, her volunteering to sleep on it instead, him not wanting her to. 

*yes, my sleeping bag was herself the elf
