Labor Day 2010
The time had come... for Beck's first camping trip! We went camping at Spring Mill with the Seymores, Shockleys, and Williams. We only stayed one night because I feared how it would go. I figured he'd do alright, it was me I was worried about! I don't do well under extreme elements. I'm a little tempermental. Shocking. I know. Don't get me wrong, I love camping, but with a baby!? I wasn't so sure. BUT it turned out to be awesome! I actually wanted to stay another night. I got over my issues of his toys, stroller, and him getting dirty. I was unrecognizable, well... maybe. Ha!
The weather couldn't have been more perfect and Beck did so well. He LOVED having other kids around to play with. They kept him entertained so well that I hardly had to tend to him, which in turn made naptime difficult. He was so stimulated by all the people and new sights, not a chance he was gonna take a nap in his pack n play with so much going on around him. But all it took was walking about 50 feet in the stroller and he was out. At night it got down to 45 degrees, so we layered, and layered. He made it until 2 a.m. at which point the sound machine (cell phone) died and he woke up. I didn't mind. I was anxiously awake and waiting for him to wake up so I could bring him into bed with me and warm his little hands and face up. So while I slept very little that night, he slept great! It was so cozy to wake up to him in our bed, on a cold morning, in our tent.
