Week 23 (June 2nd – June 8th): The Great Outdoors

Posted on

The kids have been saving their coins all winter for a tent. Every time they saw a penny, they picked up and announced that it would go in the “tent jar.” After months of talking about camping and prepping for it, we finally got a night under the stars. We planned on two nights at a campground less than two miles from home, but ended up getting a late start due to rain. Luckily, we camped close to home because we had left a few essential items at home: pillows and dinner for the kids! Otherwise, the trip was a success. Delicious dinner, a fun “hike” and marshmallows by the campfire. Instead of ghost stories, the kids each told a story about their invisible friends, Mackie & Suza. They conked out by 9:15 and woke after 7. Not too shabby! We all can’t wait for the next trip!

  1. Looks like fun. Hope you will still come “camping” at my house.

  2. We wouldn’t miss a stay at your “camp ground” for anything! In fact, we are hoping to book a stay for June (in addition to our fall visit)– someone in the family heard about the triathalon that begins with a jump of the ferry and wants to do it!
