Foto Friday--Fathers and Their Sons

What is it about camping without mothers that is so appealing to boys?

 Quick pick-up softball games that even dads play
 Twenty-five minutes on the tire swing with no one around reminding you to share
 Sticks, sticks, sticks and no one around to warn you that someone could lose an eye
 Hanging precariously with no one thinking to spot you in case you fall
 Personally designed weaponry and no one reminding you that you put your pants on wrong
 Staying up super late and no one there telling you it's bedtime
I get it.  And I'm so glad my boys have a dad that takes them every year.


  1. I'm so glad that your boys have a dad that takes PICTURES! Those were fantastic!

  2. Great pictures! Love those fathers and sons camp outs :)

  3. It's awesome, isn't it? And I hope you and Lily and Evie had a wonderful girl's night.

  4. m I mistaking or do the first three photos of your three guys all have their tongues peaking out in deep concentration?

  5. My grandsons and Matt had a great time, too. And from their photos, I would agree on the sticks and the precarious climbing without a spotter theories.


  6. Looks like they had a wonderful time!!.. Just dad and the boys..
    Robyn :)

  7. Yep, that's exactly why they love camping! :) My guys leave in a couple of weeks for a 3 day camping trip....I can't wait! :)

  8. great pictures...

    glad i'm not a boy! i don't mind walking in the 'wilderness' but i can't sleep there. i need my noise maker! haha

  9. Love Fathers and Sons,. Ours was this weekend, too, but did my man take pictures? No.

  10. That took me back to when TGD and our son used to camp in the Adirondacks and the Gatineau Hills every weekend. They even winter-camped! I loved to hear my four year old grandson talk about camping this afternoon - the tradition goes on.

  11. Sadly, The Agronomist will never get this opportunity. He would have been a great 'boy' dad.
