About a month ago, while my mom was visiting, Nick built a fire pit. If you have a fire pit, then surely you must roast marshmallows and sleep in the camper right? The kids enjoyed some good daddy time in this fashion, while mom and I retreated inside for plenty of late night talking.
(Here I would like to say the for all you unbelievers out there…the laundry fairy is real, I assure you. Thanks mommy!)
Since then, Nick and the kids have slept in the camper a few more times.
We did this in our own yard. I mean, 20 acres? Why pack up and travel and cook by flashlight? Well, mostly we have just been too busy to get away. This idea Nick came up with was a great one.
I admit I didn’t sleep in the camper once. I stole away inside to read in silence. It was great for everyone.
What are some of your favorite family fun ideas?
I can’t wait for the birds to fly south. Living so close to their winter home conservatory of the Sandhill Cranes will call for family walks in our Autumn future.
