Camping is more fun with more people. So we were thrilled to camp alongside my brother, Dave, along with his wife Amy and their kiddos, Allie and Justin. Julia’s friend Meghan also joined us. We spent the weekend at Baylor Regional Park, celebrating the first weekend of the kids’ vacation from school.
We also spent the weekend finalizing our family’s Summer Bucket List, built with an ice cream bucket, slips of paper, good old-fashioned clothes pins and best of all: imagination and goal-setting with a sense of humor!
We started filling the bucket immediately:
The kids created a Haunted Trail, full of zombies, haunted outhouses, snakes, rats, hidden bog monsters–and a tour guide with a British accent (nice lilt, Matty).
And of course we wrapped it all up with great meals and s’mores.
I hope this lovely weekend is a sign of a great summer to come.
