Father Son Campout

Friday night was our ward's father/son campout. Parker took off work a little early so they could head up there. Jackson and Josh have been SO looking forward to this. Actually, so has Parker. He took them shopping to get camping supplies and they each picked out a new sleeping bag. I had to get a picture of them before they left...Campfire with Josh "Billy"...Stick fights...Apparently one kid fell in the river, I'm surprised/grateful it wasn't one of mine...Josh's mouth stuffed full of marshmallows...Parker said they were SO tired when they finally got into the tent around 11pm, but they still really wanted to play a game so they played Trouble...Jack eating breakfast...Cute guys with their friend Yoshi...When they came home they were SO stinky and exhausted. We got them in the tub, let them play at the park while I got them registered for kindergarten, then they crashed during quiet time...
Sounds like they had tons of fun with their daddy. Parker is so lucky to have three sons to do stuff like this with. Jackson, Josh, and Tyce are so lucky they have a daddy who loves to do this stuff with them. Now if only I had a little GIRL to do GIRL stuff with. Guess I better learn to love camping! :)

That is what girlfriends are for!!!! Then you don't have to stay up all night worrying about what kind of girl trouble they can get into or crying over the girl catfight you had, or arguing over the girly prom dress that doesn't cover any skin, or trying way too hard to get girl make-up out of your carpet, or dealing with girl hormonal break-downs, etc. etc. etc. Two sisters and a mom and a family of female in-laws should be plenty to fill all that, and the girl friends can make up for the fun. ;o) We should know all about this topic right? remember living with our sisters? Now picture actually being in charge of them. makes you love your boys.
