The week after spring break we tried camping again-- this time in our tent and with our dog. We had so much fun that BOTH Jared and I ended up writing to our families about the trip. So this post will have portions of Jared's emails because there were some things that I just couldn't say any better than he did. You will recognize his words by the different font.
Griffin stayed tied up while we set up the tent and started the fire.
Both boys enjoyed cooking hot dogs over the fire even though they both refused to eat theirs and dragged their food in the dirt instead. Griffin appreciated the dirt coated hot dogs, though.
I tried to get a good view of the inside of the tent but it didn't work so well. I like camping but just can't seem to tone it down. Jared thinks a sleeping bag and pillow are all we need. I am not so much of a minimalist. I brought air mattresses for Jared and I and for Luke. Micah slept in a portable crib. Griffin had his crate and cushy bed. We also had toothbrushes.
Jared describes our night pretty well:
