Father's Day Weekend Camping...

To say that I was surprised that Andy wanted to go camping for Father's Day weekend would be inaccurate, ha.  Of course that's what he wanted to do!  Adam, Liddy and I were more than happy to oblige.  With campgrounds filling up months in advance, our only option was to head to Lake Fairfax in Reston. 

We actually really enjoy this campground and we picked our usual site which has a big "front yard" and makes for a great soccer/football field and also a great golf course for Adam.  It's also very close to the club so Andy was able to sneak in 9 holes and we were able to take advantage of the pool.  We even had Olivia and Aunt Kathleen over for a quick swim. 

My only reservation about camping over Father's Day weekend is that it's also US Open weekend.  Alas, with modern technology, we were able to watch coverage on our iPads in front of a crackling fire and on Saturday night we went all out and moved the tv outside so we could watch coverage with a crackling fire behind us getting absolutely no attention.  I'm certain the other campers were mocking us, and I'm ok with that. 

We also got to have a great pre-Father's day dinner with Andy's Dad (and Ommy too!).  Adam had a great time shucking corn with Poppy and Ommy couldn't stop laughing at Adam taking a BIG bite form his big boy hamburger.  It was a a simple gathering, but it was perfect. 

I have a feeling we'll be doing a lot of camping over Father's Day weekends in the future, and that's cool, as long as there's a fire...and a device to watch the US Open. :)
