Father/Son Camping

Yesterday Michael came up with the idea of camping out with Frank. They are the outdoorsy ones in the family. Last night there was a chance of thunderstorms so they put it off until tonight.

It has truly been sweet to watch.

They set up the tent in the yard. They dug up a small spot in the lawn and made a fire pit. They packed up all of the necessities: bug spray, blankets, pillows, marshmallows, drinks and double stuff Oreo's. Seriously, my son is just beside himself with joy at being able to do this with his dad.

Yet another reason why I love my husband...

How sweet!

Dad didn't sleep out with us, but he would set up our pop-up camper for us in the driveway in the summer and we spent most of the summer out there! SO MUCH FUN!

Your husband is a good Dad to do this with him! Michael will remember that long after Frank isn't around anymore.

Did you grab some Oreos before they headed out the door?
