I wasn't there, but I can share the pictures sent my way, and attest to the exhausted boy that returned home to me Sunday afternoon. :)
Aidan had not only his first Scouts campout, but his first campout, period!
He & Patrick headed out late Saturday afternoon, meeting up with the other campers about a half hour away.
Aidan returned home a more manly-boy.
He climbed sand dunes.
Shot a BB gun (didn't shoot his eye out;)
Lit sticks on fire
Ran around in the dark with his friends and flashlights
Stayed up til almost midnight (still woke before 7 the next day)
Ate donuts for breakfast
Filled his shoes with sand
Slept in a sleeping bag in a tent. Just him & his dad.
I know he had a blast. I am thrilled for him he had this good experience. :)
(and for a husband who is such a good father!)
