I might as well own up to it…this is the closest I’ll get to camping. Seriously, I look forward to my first colonoscopy more than a camping trip. At least my hemorrhoids will benefit by finally being itched…ahhh such a lovely visual…
Really, I am not a fan of camping. I prefer the comforts of home, or a nice resort – you know with amenities like a hot shower, sinks, toilet, pool side umbrella drinks, golf the list could go on and on…I’ve been urbanized beyond belief…it’s this thing called, ‘Life on the Grid‘. I’m ruined!
What’s the point you might ask? Lil Boo loves the outdoors – there’s so much that he is able to learn by trekking out and about – an inquisitive mind he has. From bees to digging up treasure rocks – there is an adventure around every corner. Quite frankly, I love the outdoors as well – in a controlled environment aka the backyard. Our backyard is a life long work in progress, ultimately to become our own little oasis – one of these
days years. The wife has her Provence garden with fountain, I have the citrus trees (though only the orange produces any fruit), Italian Cypress (I’m obsessed over these), nice patio to enjoy our #fnr, bonfire pit along with a whole lot of ‘still to do‘ mixed in there. Damn I sound like some urbanized freak.
Anyhow I spent the afternoon with Lil Boo in the Backyard Safari Base Camp. Entirely protected of course by our block walls – we wouldn’t want to be ambushed by a bear now would we?! He was having such a blast! Scavenging for treasure rocks, spying on bees through binoculars collecting pollen from the french lavender bushes to using the base camp as a new goal to play soccer…ah good times! All of this of course until the breeze kicked up and put a chill in the air (you know…brought the temps down to 70 degrees) and then we vanished inside our casa de la abode of stucco and cranked the heat up while enjoying lunch…
Yes, life on the grid…isn’t it grand?!
