My little family went camping, this weekend. It was my first time ever. Same for my boys. My husband, on the other hand, is an Eagle Scout and has been itching to go camping for the past few years. I finally felt confident enough to take the boys. It was so much fun! We were there during Astronomy Day, so we got to visit the observatory and look through the giiiiant telescope. It was rad.
our little abode for the night. FUNNY STORY: We slept right under a pecan tree and the wind knocks them out. OF COURSE, when it’s 3am and you hear branches snapping you don’t think “pecans” you think “vicious tree monster that’s about to eat my children.” The coyotes howling did not help this anxiety. I wasn’t really planning on getting the boys up to see the meteor shower, but being in the tent alone with them (Jason was insistent he’d go see them either way) kinda made me nerrrvous, so we all got up from 3-4am and saw shooting stars. Win win!
It was beautiful.
Do you like camping? Do you get scared of howling in the night and branches snapping above your head??
