"Like branches on a tree we grow in different directions yet our roots remain as one. Each of our lives will always be a special part of the other."
One day my babes are going to be grown and out living their own lives, but my hope is they carry pieces of our days together with them. Camping is one of those activities that I feel deep down they will cherish. I even hope they remember the imperfect moments, like arguing over who got the first s'more or the times we forgot essential food and clothing items or circling around and around out in the middle of nowhere when the GPS stopped working as we searched for the campground. The perfect moments only feel so important when balanced with the real life, down on the ground, kicking and screaming tantrum kind.
So here is our first camping trip of 2019 from way back in the spring. These are some of my favorite memories we make each year.
