Jude has been talking about going camping for over a year now and this past weekend he took his first backpacking trip with Joe. They went backpacking at the Eno River State Park and camped for 1 night.
The weather wasn’t perfect in fact there were high wind advisories the day they left and a freeze warning the night they camped. Thankfully Joe spent years in the Boy Scouts camping almost every weekend and in all types of weather so he was prepared.
I love that Joe and Jude got to go out alone for some guy bonding time. Despite the weather I know they had a great time. Jude came home looking exhausted but the big smile on his face let me know he had a great time.
Jude said he’s ready for their next camping trip and the other boys are now begging to go camping too.
