I packed the car up and went down during the day to set up the campsite. When Kurt got off work, he drove down and I had dinner waiting. We enjoyed the evening, especially joining with an amateur astronomers club who was out at the equestrian area. We all got to look through an enormous telescope and see Saturn with the rings and it's moons! Kurt and Brody also got to see another galaxy while I went to the car with an extremely tired Seth.
We all slept together in the bed for the first time, as Seth was in a pack-and-play last time we went camping. It worked out well. The kids were so tired that going to bed was a non-issue.
It was a nice day and evening. The kids ran around the woods and played. We had a campfire last night with s'mores and another fire this morning. We took our time breaking down camp this morning and came home before lunch. We have some filthy kids who need a good scrub-down, though!
It was definitely some nice, much needed and deserved, family time. :)
It is a running joke in our marriage that Kurt isn't quite the master firebuilder that he wishes he was. We have spent quite a bit of time while out camping trying to get a fire going. Here he is with a butane lighter AND a firestarter log. :) I love you sweetie!
