We be campers

For months and months, Charlie has been planning a camping trip. And we just haven't done it. Busy, adult excuses, we don't have time, blah-blah-blah. He's decided it's got to happen. And we've decided it's not very nice to keep saying we're going to do it and then not doing it.

So tomorrow, we're going camping! We're heading out super early (for a Saturday morning, that is), heading out to a great big conservation area, hiking in, pitching the tent, cooking breakfast, lunch & dinner(!) on our camping stove, and then just before actual bedtime, we'll come home. (Can't actually stay overnight in that park this time of year, and we don't actually have winter gear.)

The camping gear is all over the living room, the menu set, shopping's been done, and we're just negotiating with Charlie to be allowed to sleep in til at least 7:30.

Should be fun! Stay tuned.


  1. what great parents, and what a great idea! Have fun ...

  2. Not-sleeping-in-a-tent sounds like the PERFECT kind of camping to me!
