The Father and Son Campout

Ryan here. This weekend was the Father and Son's Campout so Eric and I struck out with Uncle Zach to Rotary Park near Hobble Creek. It was a beautiful spot and the weather was great.
Here's Eric eating his Lunchables with Zach right after we got the tent up.
These pants are 5 slim's and they still won't stay up! Poor kid has a cracked future.
"What'd you say about my pants?!"
Taking a breather on one of Zach's camping chairs.
The kids were playing 500 and this was a ball "dead or alive."
The stake put on a quick fireside about the restoration of the Aaronic Priesthood. You can see Eric falling asleep in Zach's arms.
Eric's first cooked-on-the fire s'mores. Or as he calls them: "Marshmallow sandwiches."
One of the dad's from the ward had the brilliant idea of bringing along these little glo-sticks for his kids. It's a great way to keep track of said kids in the dark, and the kids had a blast with them. Eric called them his "swords" and went all Errol Flynn.
My little swashbuckler.
En Garde, Daddy! (Sorry it's so dark).

These are the greatest pictures!! It looks like you guys had so much fun, I'm a little bit jealous of Zach. I miss those cute kids of yours! Thanks for sharing your experiences, Ryan. It's good to hear from you.

It is so great that you got some fun pictures - helps keep the memories vivid for the future, cracks and all. Looks like everyone has a great time. What did mom do with her girl's night with Beth? They are never too young to plan something special while the boys are off playing.

Thanks, Ryan, for the "pictorial account" of your campout (and of course we always enjoy your little funny comments). It was good to see Eric rough housing and having fun with Uncle Zach. It looks like you had a great time!

Eric looks like his Uncle Jason in those photos. ;o) That's awesome you could have some "man" time!
