Well, we have finally reached it; the weekend every dad has been looking forward to, Father’s Day Weekend. I myself have only been able to celebrate as a father for the past three years. However, this is the first year that I will get to celebrate with both of my daughters. Instead of waiting until Sunday to celebrate, I am going to start tonight. The best way I know how, is camping…… in the backyard. That’s right, my oldest daughter has been wanting to go camping since the weather turned warm. She’s never been camping, so tonight we will rough it, in the backyard.
By roughing it, I do mean we will be having a fire in the fire pit, roasting S’mores, and setting the futon mattress in the tent so I don’t have to sleep on the ground. I’ve even picked up a vintage white gas lantern to try and get working for tonight too. It’s a lantern that I purchased used and, so of course, it doesn’t work. With any luck we will be camping under the stars with the flicker of an old white gas lantern.
Other than that, this will be just another weekend at the Farno household. What are your plans for the upcoming weekend?
