Why I Love Camping

Having just returned from camping trip number three, which has fortunately improved from camping trip number one - I can't help but reflect...

(que squiggly lines and far off music)

...on some of the reasons why I love camping...

1- We get to wear silly headbanz and play games together.

 2- On rainy camp days, I have time to read!

3- My children create hideouts in the bunks and entertain themselves with no toys at all.

4- And maybe even work on a little school work together.

5- Sweet cuddle time.

6- My wonderful husband who works so hard to get everything set up for us...
and a campfire.

7- Secret agent super spies who appreciate my 007 sound effects.

8- Beautiful scenery and thankfully blue skies.

9- Laundromat trip conversations....

Me: Singing "you don't know a thing about me..." in a voice that would surely shame Kelly Clarkson...

Luke: I know a thing about you.
Me: What do you know?
Luke: I'm not telling.

Erin: I know a thing about you.
Me: What is that?
Erin: You are the best mom ever.

Sigh. Isn't that reason enough?

  1. Sniff. Sniff. "You are the best mom ever." Oh so sweet!!

    You are making some awesome memories with these camping trips, my dear. I'd love to be able to do that with our whole family.
