This past weekend we took Cupcake on her first camping trip. It was so much fun!
It was a very last minute trip. Over lunch on Friday, I convinced my husband that I couldn't possibly be happy if we didn't leave right then for the great outdoors. He decided to humor me, and a few hours later we were pitching a tent, roasting stuffed peppers, and enjoying the sunshine.
Of course, camping with babies isn't exactly easy, but it's worth the extra work involved. You just have to accept that fact that they are going to eat some dirt, and you probably aren't going to sleep very well. It's all part of the fun!
I love laying in bed and looking up at the stars, a cool breeze blowing through the trees, surrounded by the most important people in my life. It's easy to be joyful and full of worship, even when things don't go quite like you planned.
FYI, "Franklin the Turtle" is my absolute favorite cartoon and you can watch entire episodes on YouTube. Win!
So if you're in need of a little R&R, go outside and pitch a tent! The heavens declare the glory of God. The world is full of his handiwork. Enjoy it! Breathe deep and be joyful!
