Camping at Deerlick with the Thieles.

I heart John and Linda and their beautiful brood of boys– Jack, Andrew, and Daniel, each unique and spectacular, each a blessing and a gift. A few weekends ago, we went camping with them at Deerlick Creek Park. Max got to experience what it would be like to have brothers, with all the giggling, fighting, tussling, screaming, chasing, pouting, and hugging that is part of the precious package. Wildflowers littered the landscape, so we tried to stop time and catch beauty as it played butterfly.
Little Daniel found the perfect place to put a flower… in his ear. Friday night was the boys’ night. Linda and I took our littlest ones back to my house and left the gentlemen to their own devices. Of course everything went fine without the mother hens, though the kids were awfully thrilled to see us when we returned…. And the dads definitely missed Linda’s talent to whip up a feast from scratch. A few of my favorite weekend highlights:

  • Those home-made blue cheese burgers.
  • The feeling that we might be the loudest (and happiest) campers at Deerlick that weekend.
  • Linda’s story time with the kids.
  • How all the little boys were taken by Micah’s fussy ways.
  • Perfect weather.
  • Those ticks we found as souvenirs.
