Camping for a week in Sequoia National Park…all I can say is that the boys did not want to come home. On our last morning when Tyler poked his little head out of the tent door and saw us packing, he immediately asked when we are going camping again. I think these boys would live in the woods if they could. Wouldn’t we all? Can you imagine a treehouse among the pines or a little dugout home hidden under a hill? Days romping in the creek and nights cooking over the campfire, the smell of smoke never quite leaving your hair. It makes me smile just thinking about it. And when it comes to spending time in nature, these boys are definitely their mother’s children. They would move out here in an instant…except for the bears…Tyler wasn’t a fan of the two bears we saw which came within 50 and 10 yards of us, respectively. But bears aside, the outdoors really is the place for little boys to grow bold and strong.
…stick races in the creek occupied much of our time.
…playing in the tent with the camping guys I made last year.
…rock jumping never gets boring.
…staying clean is highly overrated.
…evenings around the campfire.
…playing games together.
…if we lived next to a creek I’d never see my children.
…picking the perfect rocks out of a clear mountain stream…this is the life. More soon.
