I don't know how many of you will remember Father/Son Camping Trip Pt 1 (link here), but last year I took Steven on an overnight camping trip. Well, Matthew felt left out, so I promised him that next summer it would be his turn to go camping with Daddy. Since the summer was coming to an end (it's definitely over now, with temps below 0 at night, but these were taken a few weeks ago) I decided it was time for Daddy and Matthew to get out into the woods.
All the wood was wet, but after enough coaxing, we managed to get a fire going, much to Matthew's delight.
Better still, a delicious hot dog to roast over the fire was the next order of business. It was a busy agenda, though, because straight away after supper we moved on to the evening's entertainment - throwing rocks into the river.
We did this until I couldn't stand the mosquitoes any more (though as you can see above Matthew could have done it all night; he was having a great time) and moved into the tent. The novelty was fun for ... about 20 minutes or so. Then we read a book (we're working our way through the Little House series) and went to sleep.
A fun time was had by both, though as you can see below by the next morning I think Matthew was ready to head home.
Thanks for stopping by, and be sure to tune in next week when we hopefully will have some pictures of a completed foundation and maybe even the concrete floor poured at our pine nut factory site.
