To Be 4 Again

A few weeks ago we told my Stepson4 we were going to take them camping next month. He got all excited at the moment and jumped up and down. We figured it was a momentary thing and would hae forgotten it and moved on to the next new and exciting adventure.

About 3 days later my fiance picked him up from preschool and Stepson4 started telling him that he needed to get his tent and his smores and learn the ghost stories for camping.

To our knowledge Stepson4 has never been camping and would have no reason to know anything about it. It was to cute that he was telling his dad he wanted to tell ghost stories around the camp fire.

So yes, in June we are taking the boys camping. We are going to go to the coast. We even got them their own tent. Big 5 had a GREAT sale and we got a tent for $26.00
We love showing the boys new things and getting their reaction to things like camping, playing in the snow, their first game of T-Ball....

Oh to be 4 again and have the fun of discovering new adventures....

Within just a few hours of me are more than a half dozen lakes, a few national parks, a couple of great rivers for fishing and one of the best rivers for floating (Buffalo National River) in the country. Yet, I've never been camping.

Can you believe that?

To discover and re-discover the beauty of camping and being one with mother nature and loved ones is absolutely magical...
I am so glad you guys are going and I know you will enjoy as much as the boys!

I don't want to be 4 again but a few years younger would be nice. My children are keeping me young at the moment and taking me lots of places I would never go by myself.
