In training for girls camp

Matt and Zoe had their first campout together last night. They canoed to their campout spot from the stream I dropped them off at near our home . Zoe has been canoeing several times with Matt this Spring and she really enjoys it. Matt says she's a good paddler.
They cooked ham, potatoes, and baked beans for dinner on a camp stove, which they say was very good.
They built a fire to sit by during the evening. I haven't heard all the details of what they did last evening, but Zoe did mention she got bored.
Zoe slept good, which surprised me because it gets cold at night, but I guess she didn't inherit my "can't sleep when I'm cold" genes.
They saw 3 beavers.
They ate pancakes for breakfast this morning, which was Zoe's favorite part of the campout.
I'm glad they had this daddy/daughter time together. With Matt as their dad, our girls will be old camping pros by the time they head to girls camp when they are 12 :-)

How fun! I love camping. And to get to go in a canoe is just fabulous. What a fun dad!

Sounds like they had a good time:) My city kids would probably complain the whole time:)

It's so great that your hubby took her camping! She'll remember that forever.
