it must be summer

because all we can think about over here is going on vacation.  We got the summer off to an early start last weekend with a camping trip to Hanging Rock State Park north of Winston-Salem (thank you to Melanie + Anthony for loaning us some needed equipment like a, uh, tent).

Overall, it was a success.  I introduced Will to the art of camping without the use of dehydrated food.

We made little w.’s lifelong dream of roasting marshmallows come true, and the kids got to play in the “little house” as much as they wanted.

We masqueraded as hikers, too.

And we relaxed at the top.

Due to the glacial progress that we made on our hike up Hanging Rock, I think that Will has temporarily put on hold any plans for a family through hike of the AT adventure.  No great loss.
