Chris has started doing something special with one child each month. This month is was Sam's turn and he got to go camping with Dad. The plan was to have them go camping at a real camp site down near the lake (about 20 mins away). But when we found out that it was $23 a night with a minimum 2 night stay we quickly decided that the back yard was a far better option! Cheaper and nicer! They cooked mac and cheese on the camping stove, read stories in the tent and had a really good time. Owen and Ella were a bit jealous and asked to go camping with Dad when it was their turn to do something special with him.
