A few weekends ago our family went camping with our regular camping family friends. We try to get away each spring and fall, and we always find new places to explore. We finally found a few moments to transfer around some photos, and as I’m looking at them now I’m getting more and more excited for our upcoming vacation adventures. The girls and I got new hiking shoes and better outerwear for exploring this weekend, and now I feel like I could leave tomorrow. I want to be outside, seeing new things, exploring to the point of exhaustion, and starting all over again the next day.
I love being their mother. I love seeing them outdoors exploring. I hope they remember our adventures. I hope the seed is planted for their own adventures beyond us. But first I want to cram in as much of this as possible.
