One of my goals for the summer: take the boys camping. Not because I don't think girls should camp (obviously) but because my boys would appreciate it most at this point, and my life is one hundred thousand times easier camping without the Scout. So that was my goal, and this past weekend we completed it. Yay.
It really could not have gone much better, as far as my expectations were concerned (except for the racuous party going on the next site over well into the wee hours for the morning). Beautiful, adventurous, perfect-for-six-and-unders hiking, campfires, s'mores, gang of reunited friends (moms included), swimming, delicious food (we don't skimp when we're roughin' it), delicious coffee (we don't skimp when we're roughin' it), and lots of "Mom, this is the best thing ever. Can we do this every summer?!"
