Today Walter took the kids camping overnight. I decided to stay home because I just wanted some time to myself.
The kids were so excited to go. Both kids were in the van before it had been completely loaded. Becca called for me to come out and buckle her as Walter got a few last things together.
When I married Walter I knew that he would be a good dad, I just never realized how good of dad he would be. He’s a fun dad who has more patience than I’ve ever seen a man have. He looks at times like this camping trip as memory building moments that will last a life time. Ben and Becca are so lucky that their daddy has time for them and enjoys being with them.
The campground where they are at is about 2 miles from the beach at the lake. Ben didn’t want to ride his bike that far so Walter hooked the trail-a-bike on to his bike and then the bike trailer to the trail-a-bike. Walter said he got a few “oh how cute” comments from his long train as he took the kids on bike rides.
As I drift off to sleep tonight I’m so glad that I’ve had this time at home by myself, but I’m excited for my family to return and to hear all about their adventures in person.
