It's A Guy Thing

Last weekend my hubby took the older boys camping. This backpack was just for fun before they left. A friend of my father-in-law owns a farm with a really nice pond on it. My hubby has access to fish/camp anytime he wants. He's been taking Monte and Hunter there since they were little. But this was the first time they camped there.

I stayed home with Carter. Okay, actually we went shopping, but I don't like to camp. And so I didn't mind being "left out" of this overnighter. And I think even the boys liked that I stayed home. That they got Dad all to themselves.

They set up camp

saw a gorgeous sunset

snuggled in with favorite "friends" from home

did LOTS of fishing

and cooked those fish for breakfast!!

Me and Carter had a good time. It seemed very quiet in the house. Sometimes too quiet. But the one on one time alone with the baby was a good thing too.

Oh, we love to camp! We dont' fish, but we love camping. But, I bet it was nice for the boys and dad to have some alone time together...and good for mommy and Carter as well. :-)

You'll have to see my blog for our camping pics on the OuterBanks of NC this past weekend.

What a great adventure! I don't know about fish for breakfast though, I prefer something a little sweeter.

I found your post and thought I’d reach out to say hello and ask if you’d like to receive a free Maya & Miguel DVD. If you’d like to receive the DVD just email me at Kerri at with your address and I’ll have it shipped it out to you.

I don’t know if you’re familiar with Maya & Miguel, a show on PBS in the afternoons -- -- that emphasizes cultural diversity and language learning but I’m reaching out to talk to parents about the program as part of a marketing project I’m working on with Scholastic.

If you do choose to blog about Maya & Miguel show or episodes on the DVD, please make it clear how you received the information. Our goal is to be open and honest with everyone we reach.
