Trees and dirt. And bug spray (and bugs). And heat. And deer, alligators, raccoons, armadillos, and fish.
And R&R. And family. And fun.
That was our weekend.
We tent camped at Myakka River State Park, near Sarasota, FL with our Cub Scout pack. This park has some pretty amazing climbing trees, which were very well climbed by the time we left the park.
The rest of the park was just as fantastic as the climbing trees. Fishing, hiking, a bird watch area, a scenic drive, shopping and dining, a fun canopy walk bridge ... one weekend wasn't enough to take it all in.
The dirt - at one point over the weekend I wrote "Wash Me" with a wipe on one of the boys legs. It was clearly visible, until he went back to the woods and trees.
Everyone arrived home filthy, tired, and very happy ... signs of a successful weekend of memory making.
