Into the wild.

We are packing up for our first camping trip of the year. This year we decided that rather than take several short weekend trips that we would take just a couple of longer trips. The children are beside themselves with excitement and could hardly sleep last night. I have to admit I am looking forward to a bit of down time. My only concern this year is that the bugs have been so horrendous. We can hardly stand to be in the backyard because of the swarms of bugs. My hope is that our camp fire will drive them away to some degree. Thankfully if it gets too bad be can always go in the camper to get away from them.
