Some of my fondest memories as a child generate from camping trips we had. As a family, we haven't gone camping since the boys were little and the girls have never gone. That makes me sad and soon we will have to plan a trip that includes us all. So, it was no surprise to me that when a friend invited Felicia and Madelyn to go camping overnight at a local campground, the girls were excited beyond words! The woke up early and had their bags packed before lunch even though they were not leaving until the evening! lol!
Looking at those smiling faces, you might never guess that it had been raining! But, thankfully just before they left it stopped and the sun came out.
They couldn't wait to go so they sat on the front porch waiting and asking every 30 seconds what time it was! Stella was a little less excited that the girls were going without her. Although, she had a great night! She always becomes so much more talkative when she's alone. We stayed up late and caught fireflies. Good times!
When the phone rang after 9, I got a little nervous that someone was homesick. NOT! There was a small mishap with a flaming marshmallow and Madelyn got a little burn from the hot marshmallow. She was fine and actually when I talked to them later to tell them good night, they had no time for mom, they were having too much fun!
I can't wait for them to get home and share all the fun stories of their first camping trip!
