I heart camping.
I heart that my brain seems to completely decompress at the mere sight of a campground.
Ahhhh....do you hear that?
Me neither. Glorious isn't it?
I heart that my kids seem to bond even closer inside of a campground.
I heart the $12/night price tag associated with camping.
I do not
heart it when I forget my coffee creamer.
We had such a great weekend!
Friends who did not forget their coffee creamer and shared with me!
We have hit the friendship jackpot of late in that there are some incredibly great families that we are currently stationed with that all have teenage boys. This is big for us as it seems as though we are typically surrounded by preschoolers. And as cute as they are, it really doesn't do much for our older kiddos. So this has been incredible for them!
So when the invite came we packed up and headed out!
Justin decided it would be great fun to submerge himself in mud.
and then lie down in the mud...
and then convince his twin brother that this mud thing was pretty cool and he should come check it out...
which he did.
They played football.
This one canoed and canoed and canoed and went tubing and canoed and went tubing.
and he gave his little brothers a spin around the lake.
This one relaxed on the sand.....I fought the urge to just lie down and join him...but then it occured to me that I would then have to add myself to the list of people that needed major cleaning.(reference earlier mud incident)
So I passed.
And now I'm sorry I did.
I've been trying to purposefully participate in those little moments lately...and I missed this one.
So now we are home.
The laundry is calling my name...but I am ignoring it.
Instead I am going to try and convince any one of these
I'd say my odds are 50/50.
I'll keep you posted.
