We loved our campground. Meredith was thrilled to be outdoors all day. I loved the feeling of no nagging chores. And it just felt really good to break routine and spend time as a family. Chris and I got to just talk and laugh. We got to share camping traditions that are special to us with Meredith. We took a walk among Redwoods with no time frame or lofty goal. We ate s'mores and cheetos and breakfast burritos. We watched a crackling fire and tried to keep a certain toddler from burning herself. It was perfect. Just as a family weekend should be.
Also? It felt really good to fall asleep in our own bed on Saturday night.
