I've heard a statistic about camping and families. I don't remember all the details but it basically said that the one thing a group of healthy families had in common was that they all went camping. I don't think there's anything magical about camping itself but it does get you away from a lot of distractions and is a fun thing to do together.
Sometimes, we just need to get away. Away from routines and hurrying. Away from TV and computers. Away from responsibilities and stress. Playing with the kids and roasting marshmallows were about the extent of Tim's duties this weekend. The kids spent the weekend playing, swimming, and getting dirty. I think that's the definition of a perfect weekend. Hooray for camping and healthy families! I think we just may be getting a pop-up camper and doing this more often.

The St. Lawrence River borders the US and Canada. This bridge is the shortest bridge between the US (the island pictured here) and Canada
We give camping 2 thumbs up!!
