My Little Ladies

 

 

I know I have boasted about my wonderful wife on my blog a couple times already, and this one isn’t really focused on her, but she is the best.  A little over a week ago I went on my Scottsdale trip with the guys from my lifeboat (small group).  She was the “single mom” for those 6 days.  So, I had pre-arranged for a little break for her by taking the girls camping for a couple days!  She and Will were able to have some good Mommy-Son time while Daddy took his girls on a camping trip date!  What a blast.  I sensed Elisabeth enjoyed the break and when we returned she had the “back to school” surprise on each of the girls beds.  New clothes!  The girls were quite excited!

 

Camping with the little ladies was a lot of fun. They were pretty pumped about everything!  The tent took me 10 minutes to set up and about 10 seconds for them to “call home” (setting everything up as they liked it).  They loved the fire times (marshmallows especially). And of course they loved the lake.  They had just finished their first round of swim lessons on Monday (we’ll resume in the winter or spring); so they put it all into practice at Lake Kachess this week.  Halle even swam briefly without any lifejacket!   Poor little Audrey must have some pretty sweet blood, she must have 25 mosquito bites (in spite of my best efforts with spray).  We took five books for Halle (all about 100 pages)… She read four!

I love camping, can’t wait to do it as an entire family next summer, but this one was special with just the girls!  Thanks Elisabeth!

One thought on “My Little Ladies

  1. Very sweet! And yeah, after thinking about the meal question I decided that we would have to have octupus hotdogs, broccoli cut like seaweed, cheese cut like starfish, goldfish crackers, blue finger jello, something cold and blue to drink. And we would have to make a ocean in a bag or container to take home. Because in families where there are little people, kids rule!
