Our mini backpacking trip turned out well. Long story, short: we had a very entertaining adventure full of excitement and MANY almost-peed-my-pants-moments. Big Sis arrived at my house early with overflowing enthusiasm and wearing a hat that had a striking similarity to Amelia Bedelia.
Thankfully, Big Sis didn’t share Amelia’s tendency for taking everything literally. No tents were “pitched” into the bushes, and the marshmallows were not thrown into the fire to be “roasted.” The hat didn’t make it through the first mile, just long enough for all to enjoy the first of many hearty laughs.
