the weekend

We logged 647 miles in the car this weekend. If we had a choice of how to spend a holiday weekend, this would not have been our first choice. Or even a close second. But it was the only way to bring him from here...

to here. Week two of Cam's summer camp adventure.

Maybe it wasn't our first or second choice... but the only choice we would want to choose. It gave us almost 24 hours of being together, the four of us.  We heard the stories of Boy Scout camp and white water rafting and four merit badges earned (if there had been fish in that lake, he might have earned 5!)  Just being four again was worth the miles.  Add in the two giant hugs from my son?  I might have driven 'round the world and back...

Awww! Nothing better than summer camp. Minus the bug bites, but I imagine he had that taken care of. And the best way to spend the weekend is together! I love it!

"around the world and back." This is know is true!

So sweet. Glad you had a bit of family time together. Between you and I, we will keep all the gas companies in business. :0

What an adventure, for ALL!
Glad you all made it home safely. And does he look older in that second picture or is that just me? :)

Sounds like the 647 miles were worth it! and the hugs were worth the long journey!

Oh, I know just what you mean. I'd walk a mile for one of their smiles. And a hug?? I'd drive a long, long way for one of those!

I hope he earned a badge for sleeping in that tent. ;)
