thing thursday: a camping we will go
as dan grinds coffee beans soon to be percolated on the campstove, i'm taking a break from packing everything from canned beans to diaper wipes, flash lights to board books.
preparing for camping can take as long as the camping excursion itself, but once you're lying on a blanket in the blue ridge, you find that the hub bub was well worth the effort.
there is nothing like being outside all weekend long.
when ever tristan is having a fussy moment at home, all i have to do is step outside. he calms, cranes his neck to look at the trees, and whoops a little. i think our wee lad is going to love camping.
to add to the fun, we're camping with friends. tashi gets to sleep in a tent with a her pal, while the parents sip adult beverages around a camp fire.
things, yes, things. camping things. lanterns. cookware. sleeping bags. tents. canned goods. produce. dry goods. ice. diapers. books. socks. sleepwear. rope. plant guides. binoculars.
and off we go. . .
