Happy birthday to the youngest in our Family Glamper crew. Our little guy turns 8 today – which is so hard to believe! It’s true what they say, “The days are long, but the years are short.”
This guy is full of life, overflowing with love of adventure. I pray he always keeps that as he grows.
In honor of his birthday, I “interviewed” him on what he likes most about camping, hiking and adventuring. Here’s what he had to say:
How old are you today? 8
Where is your favorite place to hike? Table Rock State Park
Why is that your favorite? “Because I was so happy when I made it up to the top of Table Rock. You could see out so far!”
What’s your favorite camping food? Potato chips
What is your favorite thing about hiking and camping? “Going around nature, and climbing! Climbing is my favorite.”
If you could travel anywhere to hike, where would you go? The Himalayas (interesting choice, we thought!)
What are you most looking forward to when we get our new travel trailer? Sleeping in the bunk beds!
What do you want to be when you grow up? “A person that digs up dinosaurs and looks at their bones.” (aka – an archeologist)
What is your favorite memory of one of our past camping trips? Eating dinner in the car when it poured down rain. (Please note: this was NOT mom’s favorite memory!).
What tip would you give other kids who want to hike and camp?
He said, “Encourage yourself to hike more, even when your legs are tired, because if you keep going, you will see something beautiful at the top.”
No truer words spoken, son. We wish you the happiest of birthdays, and can’t wait to see what the next year of adventure holds for you!
