Father and Son Camping

Our stake has two Father and Son Camp outs a year. One in April and the other in the beginning of November. Well the camp out was scheduled for the 16th and 17th of November. So Austin and I, after talking about it, decided that we wanted to go camping. Well we don't have a tent. So Austin and I decided that we needed to go down to Bass Pro Shop and get a tent. I attended a window demonstration a few months ago and I received a $50 gift certificate to Bass Pro. Se we headed down there and found the perfect tent. A few days later I got a call from the Branch President. He told me that the camp out had been cancelled due restriction to open flames. See we are in the middle of a drought down here and the campground that we were going to go to is so dry that the Fire Marshall told the Stake President that we can't even light a coleman stove. So they called it off. Austin was very sad. So we decided to have a father and soon camp out anyway.

We set up the tent in the middle of the Living Room.

That is where we slept. He had hot dogs for dinner. We played and had fun friday night and saturday while Michelle and Nana went to Raleigh. They went to the temple and to Trish Elder's reception. We each had a great weekend.

Looks like a great time. Your a great dad Brian. I am sure Austin loved every minute of it.

I love it! What a sweet thing to do. It's a good thing you had a big enough room for it or you'd have to actually rough it outside.

That is awesome. What a great idea. All the comforts of home (heat) and still the outing.

That has to be one of the sweetest things that I have ever seen! You are such a super dad Brian, and Austin is turning into such an awesome boy!
