So, for this one weekend in July we went camping.
Eight adults, seven kids, four sites, two nights, and lots of junk food. The kids rode bikes, cooked over a campfire, and spent a pair of solid days (mostly) away from devices and just playing outside. It only rained a little bit, and the bugs seemed to have gone on vacation, too.
For a brief moment I tell myself that I could once again get used to sleeping in a tent for many nights in a row, eating food that can be grilled over a burning log, and having to walk half a kilometer to use the bathroom. But I do enjoy coming back home at the end of it… so a quick weekend camping topped up that empty space for another while.
