Elijah loves to be with his dad. He'll tell him, dad we need some man time. Caleb gladly gives it to him. On Friday they had a camp out in the backyard.
I know that at the end of a long week it would be easier for Caleb to just want to relax and put the kids to bed early. But Caleb always invests his time in his children. He enjoys them and happily chooses a bad nights rest in a tent with his son than the comfort of his bed.
I'm so thankful for the relationship they are building. Elijah admires his dad and could not have been happier. He kept saying, this is so cool dad.
He helped put the tent together...
He was so proud of himself.
He brought out his little tent too...
You can't have a camp out without roasting marshmallows.
Caleb told Elijah stories of times that he went camping and mentioned that he usually fished on camping trips. Elijah said that if they were having a real camp out then they needed to fish. So, he grabbed his fishing pole and fished in his blow up pool.
Elijah's great grandparents gave him a flashlight and now it doesn't leave his side. He loves it and loved being able to use camping. He starting shining the light all over and yelling, thank you Propa and Proyia.
At this point I they told me no girls allowed. I went inside thinking it wouldn't be long before they came in, but I was wrong. They made it all night long and Elijah's only complaint was the Sun was too bright in the morning.
