Girls will be girls

I had a fantastic weekend hanging out with Byrd.  We haven't done much in the way of Girls Scouts this year but, we ran off with her troop for a two night camping trip.  Despite my apprehension, we had a really great and relaxing time roughing it.
I was very pleased that the girl and I remembered how to put the tent up and had zero issues.  I, being old, did bring and air mattress for under my sleeping bag.  I wouldn't have last two nights without the extra cushion.  Percolator camp coffee was a huge help as well.
We couldn't have asked for more beautiful weather or scenery.  The best part of the trip, though had to be the girls.  Each of these young ladies has been in scouting since they were very young.  Mine has been a Girls Scout since Kindergarten.  
We are so very proud of them.  This trip was bitter sweet in that it is their last one as Juniors.  Next year they will be high school seniors and finishing up more than just their Girl Scout careers.  I am so glad I was there to share this time with my girl.
