Camping.

Camping was perfect. Well, we cut it a night short because we froze our tushies off the first night and I was having major pregnancy aches, but minus that, it was perfect :)

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.

This trip makes me really want to go camping with the boys. I think we'd end up leaving like the day we got there, but I just want a s'more so bad it'd be worth it :)
