The Boys go Campin'

The older boys got invited to go camping overnight. They had to drive a couple hours away and then hike in about 2 miles. Rob bought them a 4 man tent that he could carry and a little stove to cook on. They also got some cool little headlights that we really could have used during our marathon training! It was not easy running in the dark!
Joseph looks like there is no way he could make it on a 2 mile walk, but really that is just stuffed with his sleeping bag. It only weighed a couple of pounds. Sam totally forgot to put his sleeping bag in, so he had an interesting night! In the end, both Joseph and Sam crashed on the way home the next day and were more than happy to go to bed at 9 pm.
I think in the end they had a lot of fun. Thanks Dad for taking them out!

There are so many beautiful state forests in Ohio. I'm glad your boys had such a great time. Hopefully, the girls can go next time!

That looks like a scout kind of fun week-end. Is Sam getting ready for his 12 year old adventures? MOM
