The Peanut is a trooper (like her Mom) and likes camping no matter the weather - even if its raining. It's the joy of being outside and excitement of being one with nature. Of exploring the sights and sounds and of indulging in the simple pleasures (like smores :).
Singing by the campfire, or making hot chocolate on the fire - these are all important parts of the whole. It's the journey, the excitement, the acts of battling the fierceness of the universe with very simple tools!!! Ok, maybe not so fierce, but the appreciation of the outdoors and pride in making a grand meal with very limited tools - definitely!!! And of course the ability to start the fire with only what is found on the ground - and a few matches, of course! (A challenge when raining - but one that is always conquered!)
What were you up to this weekend?
