The boys returned safe and sound on Sunday evening from their rugged – “I am man hear me roar” – winter camping trip. Well… it’s wasn’t as rugged as years gone by but they had just as much fun. I am glad that my 8 year old, Q, was able to experience it with his dad.
They traded in their igloo making gear for a heated Yurt and the weather wasn’t a blizzard with freezing rain. That was last year! This year they had beautiful hiking weather and a wood stove to keep them warm at night. They were able to take up their favourite game, Settler’s of Catan, to play as a Yurt is more like a canvas cabin! The two younger boys (mine and a friend’s 11 year old son) watched movies on the portable DVD player. Yah, so not so rugged…. 😉
I know Q is looking forward to going again next year. He loves winter and loves being outside, he would have been fine and would have loved it if they did have to stay in an igloo! I can’t wait until my hubby can take all three boys — and our princess as well!! I think I’ll stay at a spa that weekend….
Just in case you didn’t believe me about the igloo thing….
I – AM – CANADIAN!!
