Easton got to go on his very first overnight camp-out with the scouts a few weeks ago. He had the best time! I’m so happy that Joe was able to go with him and they could spend some time together roughing it, haha! (They went to a little park here in town.) These pictures are from the day he got home, and he couldn’t wait to show me how to start a fire. I tried seriously about 30 times to get a picture of the little spark, but no luck catching it in a picture. We did get some smoke though, haha!
Reesie and I had a girls crafting party while the boys were gone. We did q-tip paintings, made bracelets out of shower rings and fabric, and watched The Swan Princess: A Royal Family Tale; and also Barbie: The Pearl Princess mermaid movies with s’mores for dessert. We also did a couple Spirograph projects. It was a lot of fun for both of us!
Spending time with our kids is so incredibly important to Joe and I. I’m lucky that he feels the same as I do when it comes to the most important thing in our lives being family. Last night a picture popped up on the screensaver on our computer with him and Reese driving the RC truck up some rocks. He said that he wanted to find a few more pictures of him doing fun stuff with the kids, and I told him that just about every picture he’s in that I take involves him doing fun stuff with our family. I’m not sure if he realizes what an amazing dad he is to them. But he is.
