We got to the camp site at Ensign Ranch around 6 p.m. and set up the tents. The little boys had their own tent and Stephen, Leone, David, me, Margot and Fritz all slept in another. We were like little sardines in there but we lived to tell the tale! William was giddy with excitement. He was so obviously thrilled to be on this camping adventure. When we told him we were going to Seattle we started telling him what our activities would be. When I got to the camping part, his eyes lit up and he talked about it several times a day. Now that we're home he plays "camping" on the ground with blankets all the time. I guess we need to take him more . . . when it cools down!
I love this picture so much. I feel like it really represents the relationship between these two boys. William looking at Beck with such admiration and Beck just being fun and leading William around. They also had a great time roasting marshmallows for s'mores (with Nutella, of course, although it was really the cocoa almond spread from Trader Joe's).
Meanwhile, I snuggled it up with my baby boyfriend before I unsuccessfully tried to put him to bed in the tent before it got dark (which is at 10 p.m.!).I tried sharing a sleeping bag with him and that was a nightmare. He promptly kicked me out as soon as I got in. But I'm a nice mom and let him sleep.
Notebook moment. I was like, "let's ditch the kids and then, yes!" Haha!
