I’m not going to complain one tiny bit in this post!
We didn’t take our whole family on an overnight campout with the Cub scouts this weekend!
I don’t feel like I’m cheating to say I went camping because at 9:30PM I decided to take Baby Boy and myself home to sleep! (We were approximately 5 minutes from our house) I wasn’t back promptly at 8AM the next morning!
Their were not a gazillion, billion mosquitoes at this campsite!
I would not have dressed my family in pants and long sleeves if I’d realized the mosquitoes were a much bigger issue than the sweltering heat! My children did not come home covered in bites! The guy at the grocery store did not ask what was wrong with my son’s face this morning!
Did I mention that it wasn’t a 10 minute walk to the bathroom or any running water!
After carrying Baby Boy on my back (in my mei tai) during a hike to the visitor’s center I didn’t get overheated and have to hand off Baby Boy and sit down the whole time we were there and drink a ton more water before I felt like I could walk back.
I didn’t enjoy tying the mei tai on my hubby for the way back! I don’t really wish I would have thought to take a picture of it! (He wore him on the front instead of the back). He didn’t end up knowing the park ranger from high school either (he knows somebody everywhere we go)!
I did not still feel exhausted the next day, even though I got to come home and sleep in my comfy, mosquito free bed!
My camera did not get lost because I left it with my husband who didn’t know I left it with him! I’m not praying we get it back and I don’t feel the slightest disappointment that I don’t have any pictures to go along with this post!
Oh wait, I didn’t almost forget that I got about 3 pictures with my hubby’s older camera, here is one of Baby Boy moving a horseshoe stake around!
