I can camp in a tent and I don’t abhor camping in a tent but, I’ll admit it, I do not love it, either.
Earlier this month my boys’ Cub Scout pack was invited to take part in a Mom & Me camp out.
Yep, just the moms and the boys. In tents. In the somewhat wilderness.
And as much as I griped about it to my husband (poor guy), I went with a smile anyway… and actually even ended up having a great time with my guys.
We pitched our tent, I turned off my phone, and we pretended to rough it for just one evening, one night and the better part of the next day. We had a great time talking, playing, hiking, playing games and building breadboxes which will probably be used to house trophies and ribbons in their bedrooms instead of bread in the kitchen.
The best part was the time together, undistracted. And that really was priceless.
Do you camp with your family? Would you be up for a Mom & Me camp out? (Or would you grumble like I did… and then treasure the time?)Filed under General tales | Tags: camping | Comments Off
