Four parents, nine kids and a dog. It sounds like the beginning of a joke, and at times, during our camping trip it felt like a bit of one.
We just returned yesterday from a camping trip with good friends who also have 4 kids (and we brought an extra kid for good measure). The leaves up in the mountains of NC were glorious and full of every autumnal hue. When we weren't staring in awe at the foliage, we hiked, carved, gathered wood, chopped wood, gathered leaves, jumped in leaves, washed dishes (with a great amount of singing), dunked heads in waterfalls, endured a 28 degree night, drank hot chocolate, shared secrets with friends, played with a baby, whittled branches, and so many more fabulously fun activities. I think the pictures do a better job telling the story.
