They Survived Camping {Mama Braggin' Monday}

They survived.

It was man vs. wild at times. But they survived.

And if there were a reality show about dads taking their kids camping, I'm sure this trip would have made the cut.

My man and one of his buddies took all of the kids camping last night. It was a first for 3 out of the four children. We had our kids try out sleeping in the tent in our back yard on Friday night and my poor little man only made it about an hour before he came in because he couldn't get comfortable. So, I'm not kidding in the least when I say we were unsure of how it was all going to go. But, by all reports they had a great time and slept well.

Why didn't the moms go, you may ask? We did. In our own way. Our version of camping was to go see the movie Valentine's Day and have sushi afterwards. So... yeah. You get the picture.

We got home from church on Sunday and began to pack. And pack. And pack some more.

All this for a single overnight camping trip. Less than 24 hours. Good grief.

But look at these faces. They were so excited!!

Their camping site.

Apparently there was much hiking and biking and scooter riding and...

... and falling.

Just evidence that a good time was had.

What fun! I love your idea of camping muuuuuch better. As my boys get older, I think I am going to have to surrender to the other type of camping here pretty soon. I think we are going to experiment with a hibachi grill and a little tent in the back for them. Fun times! Family is the best for fun.
