Father-Son Campout

Each year, our church hosts a Father-Son Campout for the men in our church. It is a tradition that my husband had when he was a child, attending the campout with his father, and now George, Daddy, and Granddaddy all go together (Liam still needs his mommy, but he may be attending next year).

This was George's third year going and he has a blast every time. His favorite thing to do is to go out on the lake. There are canoes and paddleboats to use and George was able to go out on both. Here he is on one of his canoe rides.

The boys opted for a cabin again this year (instead of using the tent) because it had rained a lot lately and more rain was expected that night. Later that evening, George's friend (and our future neighbor) arrived and I was told that they played all evening and did not go to bed until 10:30 that night.

While the boys were out camping, Bridget, Liam, my mother-in-law, and I spent Friday together, making a trip to the library and having dinner. That night, Bridget and I stayed up late reading the books we had borrowed from the library. It was nice spending some quality time with just her. I had intentions of going somewhere fun with Bridget on Saturday, but since we spent most of Friday out and about, and had been unproductive all week prior (I was diagnosed with strep last week Monday), we did some catching up on schoolwork and house cleaning. The house was very quiet with George being gone but we were happy to have our boys back home with us that evening.
