Let me begin by saying that Mike is a camper.  He was a boy scout and has gone on camping trips for a good portion of his life.  He has always looked forward to taking his kids camping.

Me?  Not so much.  I prefer to have running water and a shower where I don't have to wear my shoes...sleeping in a sleeping bag..on the ground?  It just doesn't sound like much fun.  Plus, you have to lug all the stuff to the site..set it all up..cook..and clean it all up--without the help of any modern gadgets.  It just all seems like way too much work to be called fun.  And bugs.  Ugh.  Need I say more??

However! I have always said that I would be willing to go camping..once we have no diapers to deal with.  I concede that the kids will have fun..aaaaand, if we all pitch in, it probably won't be too terrible. ;)

So, as my title states--you have to start somewhere.
(we're down to one in diapers at this point in time)
Somewhere being the backyard.
The past couple of Friday nights, we've lit a fire and cooked hot dogs, corn, and roasted marshmallows..the kids love it.

Mike loves it too.

These are huge marshmallows!
Campfire style!

Corn on the cob!


Someone is tired!!

I'll go camping.
As long as we can even it out and hit the resorts every once in awhile too.
Happy Monday!
