This weekend has been an amazing one. One of the reasons why this week’s Bear Portraits are a day late. You know, one of those weekends that are a little bit special and you know you’re going to look back on it for years with a smile. It’s been a simple one spent camping in the Lakes. With 8 adults, 7 kids under 4 years of age and a dog, it was chaotic at times with tears, tantrums and a severe lack of sleep. However, it was also wonderful too full of fun and smiles.
She had the BEST time ever. An entire weekend spent with her 3 best friends, she hasn’t stopped speaking about camping and playing with her friends since. There were high emotions – especially on the third night as sleep was getting more rare – but it was worth it just to watch her interact with her little buddies and see just how much fun she was having.
This weekend I realised that my baby is well and truly gone and in his place is a lovely little boy. He tried his best to keep up with the girls and had the best time joining in with their games. We did camp last year too when he was around a year old, but this is the first time where he really got into it and enjoyed the freedom too.
