Cold and Rocky, thankyouverymuch

When assembling our camping gear for the next leg of the trip, I carefully hurriedly stuff items into the camping suitcase.  Sleeping bags, jackets, can opener, sleeping pads...

About those sleeping pads. Our kids have two sets. One that is lightweight and self- inflatable, for our backpacking trips. And one that is thicker and you have to blow up.  Whenever we are not backpacking, Tyler and I like to think we are being nice and sweet by blowing up the thicker mats, and daydream of our kidlets slumbering peacefully on their cushy soft beds wrapped tight in a mummy sack.

In reality, we blow up the mats, tuck them in, give them a kiss, and they roll off. Onto the hard, cold, rocky ground.

They like it there.

Yes, they like it. I have repeatedly tried to get them to sleep ON the mat, not beside it- but this, THIS is a direct quote from Isaac:

"I really like putting my face on the ground. No sleeping mat for me, thank you."

Oh. Ok.  

From Victoria  and Saltspring Island, BC. Go there. Go there now.
