Mother’s Day Camping Trip

Tent Setup
Tent Setup

There is no doubt when I married my wife, I married up. On this past Mother’s Day, I asked my beautiful 18 week pregnant wife what she wanted for Mother’s Day. I expected the usual: a day to herself at the spa or a new item of clothing that she had been eyeing. Instead, she asked for a weekend of sleeping in the dirt, eating food cooked over a fire, walking in the woods, and playing in the creek.

How could I say no?

    Awesome weekend! I’ve been following your blog for a few years now, our kiddos are about the same age as yours. It’s crazy how fast they grow up…
