In early May, we jumped on some excellent weather and took the kids camping at Baker Lake. Nothing could have made them happier.
The moment we arrived they wanted to put up the tent and make a fire so that we could have s’mores. We held them off the best we could on the fire and s’mores while ran, jumped, climbed on logs and rocks, threw rocks in the lake, etc. Leighton was besides himself the entire time with the abundance of sticks and rocks.
We even went for a hike to the Baker River foot bridge. The kids insisted on wearing a backpack and stuffing them full. Along the way, Leighton found more sticks and lots of bugs. Molly found an enormous tree and earned a blister.
If you asked them, I am sure that they would say that there isn’t such a thing as too much camping.
