Fathers and Sons Campout



While Maggie and I were enjoying our night together at the mall on Friday, Dan was camping with the boys. Our congregation at church puts together a camp-out every year for fathers and sons. Dan has looked forward to taking his sons camping since they were born-- so this trip has been a year and 10.5 months in the making.

Nobody died. Everybody was able to get at least some sleep in the tent in the rain. And they got to launch some pretty cool rockets. So, I say it was a success.

I am just amazed/proud that Dan did it. I don't think I would have dared do it by myself.

Here's to many future camping trips!

Just hope, every time, that some of the boys remember they are dads.

We had the father-son campout over the weekend too. And it rained buckets here. My boys still had a wonderful time. I think it's great!

Don't tell my son, but I hate the father's and son's campout. I am not a big camper. Although if we shot off rockets, I could change my mind.

Wow, Dan! I would never have attempted taking a toddler camping, let alone two. Maybe it's because I've taken a toddler shopping. Good for him!!

That man is very brave. And it's endearing that he loves his boys that much!
