fishing & camping

I love the outdoors- the smell of a campfire, roasted marshmallows, breeze in my face… Until the mosquitos. And the sticky heat. And stinging caterpillars.

This weekend, I got the best of both worlds. I spent two days watching my little ones fish with their cousins (and even bait their own hooks with real crickets- who are these kids?!?), and then I got to sleep in my warm, clean bed. The boys camped out in real tents with their dad and the girls had a slumber party at home (after eating s’mores, of course).

It was the perfect plan! For now, I can use my youngest as an excuse not to sleep in the wild (she’s just a babythe heatthe bugs…). And who knows, as she gets older, I may even learn to enjoy it.

Abe clearly had a blast!
The boys (minus one cousin who was fishing nearby).
Jack & the ill-fated crickets.
The girls tried to rough it...
Juice & brownies... the breakfast of champions.
There's no place like home... there's no place like home...

I hope you had a great weekend, too!
