We had our first camping trip this weekend. This morning I’m doing laundry, cleaning up, putting away, baking, playing catch-up. The kids are dressed up as a knight, a baby, and a ‘girl that is sometimes a princess’. I’m pretty sure you can figure out who is who. The peaceful playing is common with home-comings. It’s as if all their toys and the rooms in the house are fresh and new to them. It makes all the work surrounding a weekend away like that a lot easier.
We went over to the East side of Glacier Park, and camped at Rising Sun. I love the East side; it always feels so far from home, even though it’s just a 2+ hour drive. Some friends joined us Saturday and Sunday we hiked into Saint Mary’s Falls and Virginia Falls… a perfect hike for kids. A stop up at Logan Pass (just open this weekend) on the way back home to play in the snow topped things off perfectly. It’s a recipe we’ll have to repeat a few times this summer, I hope!
