First Father and Sons

Hyrum and I went to our first Father and Son's camp-out a few weeks ago. We arrived after dark due to some other obligations we had during the day and found a spot to park our car near a few of our friends. Hyrum saw the fire and everyone preparing smores and you could tell that his eyes were just glowing with excitement. Because it was so late, we made smores and then ended up going to bed. We decided to rough it and blow up our queen size mattress and put it in the back of our van (quite possibly the most comfortable camp out I have ever been on).

Most of the activities took place that next day. We joined the stake for breakfast and then went and played out near the lake. One of our ward friends brought a canoe and was so kind in taking Hyrum and I out for a spin around the lake. I thought he might be a little afraid but he loved it. He kept looking for fish to jump out of the water but had no luck.

After getting back, I took off his shoes and he enjoyed playing with all the big kids on the shore. It was a fun experience for me to spend time with Hyrum and I know that he had a blast.

That is so cool! I can't believe he is getting so big, it's amazing how quickly they seem to grow up!

What a blast. Glowing is a good word to describe Hyrum. I don't think that I have ever seen him frown:) Glad you had fun.
