into the woods



have i mentioned yet that we're in the midst of planning a family trio campout? in excellent wilderness territory, i might add. have i mentioned yet that dan, my mountain man, is on cloud nine about spending four days in the woods? have i mentioned yet that i am packing loads of layers, planning on rain and practicing my brave face about our potential proximity to bears. dan took benji to sportsman's warehouse the other night for a few extra necessities. everytime d takes b anywhere, it's called a boys' trip which i think is completely endearing. dan is pictured here going over our camp gear inventory, sitting in a new nine dollar camp chair and stuffing benji's very first sleeping bag. dan likes the high quality performance of its material; i like that it's called The Little Tree sleeping bag. another good investment in a new generation of family traditions.

happy labor day. i scheduled a few posts to keep you entertained while we're eating trail mix.

p.s. i hope you showtune lovers noticed the title to this post. into the woods has an incredible soundtrack and is one of my on stage favorites.

Where did you get his sleeping bag? Do you know what it's rated to?

We're looking for a bag for Elijah but the youth bags seem to all be warm-weather bags. This is odd to me - you'd think you'd want your child to be at least as warm as you! We want something rated to 0 but they don't seem to make those (we like to camp in Canada and Yellowstone and such).

sounds great! here in australia we never have to worry about big and dangerous as we have small and dangerous really well covered with snakes and spiders. I can never really work out which I would prefer....
hope you trip is bear free.
