Over the weekend, our church congregation held a little camp out. Typically they call it the “Fathers and Sons Camp Out,” but because there are so many young couples in our area, many without children, they deemed it “Man Camp,” and invited everyone that’s a dude.
Philip came home from church a few weeks ago and told me about it, and said he would really like to go and take Peanut. Although I was a little bit weary of how well Peanut would do sleeping in a tent, I was all for it…Peanut loooves one on one time with Philip, and it was a good chance for them to have a whole day of it before another little boy joins the family and takes away some of daddy’s attention.
We talked about it for the entire week leading up to it, hyping it up, so that by the time Friday rolled around Peanut could hardly take a nap because he was so excited. It was so fun to see them pack up their bags, load up the jeep, and then hold hands as they walked to the car to head out. Despite the fact that we just transitioned Peanut out of the crib and into a real bed, and we were nervous how that would go in a sleeping bag, he did so well. And has talked about little else for the entire weekend. Including the s’mores that they ate (sans chocolate, cause whoever was in charge forgot to bring it…).
And while they were gone, I enjoyed an eerily quiet evening where I ran a bazillion errands, worked on a few house projects, and had a few girls over to sew (where I made this maxi skirt out of that polka dot fabric I bought forever ago), and then the next morning slept in past nine o’clock. Heaven.
