Father's Day Camping Trip

For Father's Day, Amy's friend Alison invited us on a group camping trip to Big Basin Redwoods State Park: 12 children, ages 3 weeks to 4 years, and 14 adults, sharing 4 adjacent campsites. Once we finally got the kids settled down around 11:30 PM, the adults chatted around the campfire late into the night. Except for Paul, who got out his ear plugs and went to bed at 9:30. The next day several 3- and 4-year-old girls impressed everyone by hiking 5 miles to a waterfall at a respectable clip with no whining. Amy and Paul, who are tired of backpacking their increasingly heavy children, are hoping that James and Sadie were paying close attention.


  • Looks like you all had a blast! I heard there was a reprise of "No Kisses For Dan" sung around the campfire....hilarious. Bummed we had to skip out this time. :)
