Once again, we went on our annual Red Butte Gardens camping night in June. It seems to get easier every year that Theo gets older, and we have a nice tradition of going with our dear family friends. This was our 7th year and it was great!
This year, the Gardens have an exhibition called LEGO Connects, which places large structures of LEGOs among the nature in the garden. We took a scavenger hunt walk through the gardens and found them all. They were clever and intricate and we loved finding them amongst nature!
One of the activities was to create your family’s camp flag, and Theo designed a “B-i” that are the first letters of our last name, while also being the outline of the mountains and sky that we can see from our campsite.
This year I was determined to be as comfortable as possible and insisted on bringing a queen-sized double-height Aerobed. I even packed an extension cord so we could pump it up inside the tent. It was definitely much more comfortable than sleeping on our old cots and pads, but nothing beats home. Glad we could appreciate the outdoors as well as appreciate what we have indoors when we go home!
