We’re about to leave on another family camping trip. This will be our first “out of Texas” adventure. We are still newbies considering this is only our second year. Our boys have taken to it as if it’s the best thing ever. It’s what they want for there birthdays!?
The point of the title is, if done right, camping can strengthen your family. There is something about getting away from the comforts of your home and “roughing” it for a few days. It isn’t just getting “close to nature” though that is really cool. Waking up to the sound of hundreds of song birds waking up (warning, this is at first light), it’s glorious! My favorite time is after the sun drops below the horizon. No city lights. The Milky Way is poured out across the sky.
OK. Back to the point. It’s taking time away from work, routine, home business, slowing down. You see your spouse and kids, talk to them, do stuff with them, and share in a safe hardship. The memories you take away from those few days are timeless, priceless. We like to do this. We’ve been out five times now.
Not to mention the obvious, the pictures add a dimension to our photo books. We have to recommend doing this too. It keeps the memories within hands reach. We can be easily distracted and forgetful. When things are tough in your family, looking through pictures & remembering can be a balm.
I know some people do not like to get outdoors. I wonder if they’ve just not had a good experience. Or just have no idea. God bless them. This is a photography blog, so, one photo point. Take a camera. The pictures will be treasured.

Hope we’ve convinced you.

P.S. When camping I think I miss my Pandora One the most.
