Last weekend Matthew and Austin got to go on their first father and sons camp out. It was the perfect weekend since Matthew didn't have a test the following Monday like he usually does. This is the first time Austin has been camping and he was so excited. Almost too much so in the fact that he wouldn't take a nap that day. Matthew said Austin was great and really fun the whole time.
I guess his favorite parts were going to go look for sticks and hanging out inside the tent. He thought the tent was the coolest thing ever and thought the sleeping bags were such a novelty. I guess he would always come inside the tent and lay down on the sleeping bag just because he thought it was so cool. He also loves flashlights and loved being able to use his in the dark.
When it was time for bed Matthew took Austin inside the tent, read him the books I packed and then they both laid down and Austin went to sleep. I was a little worried that it wouldn't go as smoothly. However, Austin did wake up a 4:30am ready to get up and play! Poor Matthew. So they got up and looked for more sticks until everyone else got up.
