The All-Boy 48 Hour Adventure

Andy and Luke have longed for another camping trip. They started asking about the next camping trip about an hour after we got home from our beach vacation. I think that means they like to camp. Recently they started hounding Steve to stay not one but TWO nights at the camp site. And they wanted to try a boat ride. Poor Steve, you all know how he hates to be outdoors. And drive a boat. Kidding. It was not a hard sell at all. He eagerly booked the camp site and the boat rental. They piled into the car on Friday afternoon with all of their gear and zipped off, leaving Eli and I to wander the house looking for somebody to play with. Here they are, posing in their life jackets on the boat.

Andy isn't quite ready to make new friends at the camp site but he must have sweet talked somebody into sharing their cars with him. As far as Andy is concerned, it's not a party until Mack and his trailer show up.

Luke immediately joined the other boys camping nearby. I have no idea who these fellas are, but Steve tells me they became buddies for the weekend and spent quality time doing what boys do.

Every boy's dream: lighting something on fire.

Apparently dessert involves a walk to the store for something loaded with sugar. And blue dye. The love affair with the push pop begins.

They had a great time and came home tired and smelly. It sounds like the boat ride was the highlight of the weekend, as each boy got to take a turn 'driving'. I'm not sorry I missed that part.

Eli and I had a good time playing with everybody else's stuff and embarking on his favorite adventure: strolling through the neighborhood and squealing "hi!" to everyone we meet.
