I decided about two weeks ago, with dad working out of state this week, and big sis not planning on coming to visit, I would take little man on an overnight camping trip.  I hate bugs, I like comfort and indoor plumbing, etc.  but I love my kids more!

saturday, after troop popcorn sales, I popped the hatch to show him a trunk full with tent, firewood, cooler, and sleeping bags.  His smile was incredible!!!!  We jumped in the car and hit the road.  No trouble setting up, starting a fire, and cooking.  Our plan was to relax for the afternoon, eat, sit around fire til bedtime, sleep in, clean up, go hike, then head home.

we did almost all that.  I asked him if I had done well enough to try it again, I got a yes!  What a wonderful time!

Must be the half empty nest syndrome.  We’ve been going through closets, dressers, cabinets, and shelves.
