Camping Disaster

My family and I went camping in McCall for a week. My family included my mom and I, my Ant summer, Uncle Brad, Aunt Erin, Uncle Kent, and Kylee, Keagan, Emmy and Grayson. While we were driving I saw pine trees that looked as they were taller than the mountain tops. The air had a strong smell of pine trees and camp fire. The trees covered in neon green moss. It looked awesomely cool!!!!!!!
The family and I went to go look for delicious wild strawberries. We all got ready and my aunt accidentally left her tent open and forgot to close the coolers. We took a trail it took about 20 minutes find our spot. We saw a few foxes on our way there. There was a lot of wild bird flying. The dogs tried to get the squirrels and other small wild creatures. We gathered our strawberries. As we headed back we decided to have a few.
My mom asked me “how many do you want?”
“Four” I said.
“Are you sure?” she said
“Yes!” Mom
While eating them we all thought they tasted as sweet as gobs topers. They tasted so delicious we ate half of them!
As we were arriving back at our camping spot we realized it was thrashed the trash was scattered all over the floor along with what was left of my aunts ripped up tent! My uncle found some bear prints!
“Cool!” said my little cousin.
We all laughed when he said that. My mom and everyone else spent about two hours of cleaning but the kids and I went for a walk down to the lake. Luckily no one was there to get hurt. It was an awesome trip besides that.
