As my last post emphasizes, I am now a fan of camping with my kids. The boys love it, I love it, even our dog, loves it. That’s not to say it’s not a butt-load of work, which it is. But at the end of the day being out in nature without the distractions and conveniences of home provides a unique time to create memories.
Here’s my list of five things to remember to bring.
glow sticksjiffy pop
silly ghost stories
From the flashlights to the ghost stories, each of these things enhances our trips. For example, the glow sticks became the vehicle for Bobby to put on a light show. How he loved seeing them dance in the dark. The jiffy pop was more of a distraction, but a fun one. And, of course the ghost stories told around the fire usually involving two superheros who scare the ghosts away. That’s right – Bobby and CJ were the heroes – hopefully will be cherished for years to come.
