Keagan has been camping and fishing quite a few times with Andrew in the past couple of years. They have gone to a couple of different guys weekends and to a father's & Sons campout, but we have never been camping together as a family. We are trying to remedy that by going on our first camping trip as a family (also my second camping experience in about 12 years).
Andrew and Keagan went on their first camping trip this year to the Fathers & Sons campout at the end of June. A few weeks later Andrew and I asked Keagan if we should all go on a camping trip together and he looked at us and said, "No, mom, it's too dangerous for you". Now, everytime we talk to him about going camping he tells us that it is too dangerous for me and Deker and that we can't go.
So...Despite Keagan's warning, we are going to attempt our first family camping trip this weekend. Hopefully we will come home safe and happy and Keagan will realize that it isn't too dangerous for me.

When I finished the skirt and realized that I had a fair amount of material left, I decided that I would try making the little boys some ties. I am pleased with how everything turned out, especially it being my first time making these things. Keagan, Deker and I wore our new things to church. Here are some pictures we took before we left.
For those of you that are interested, here are the links for the patterns I used. For my skirt I used the tutorial on V & Co. for her Tablecloth Skirt. Although, I didn't have a tablecloth so I just used fabric. For the boys' ties I used the pattern and instructions from The Purl Bee for Little Boys Ties. I did make quite a few changes to the ties I made to make them more kid friendly and I sewed all of it with a machine.

I am not sure if you can tell or not, but that is Keagan pulling Deker around the house while also riding his truck. What a helper.
It mostly fun, but also frustrating at other times, to see how these two boys interact with each other. When Deker is doing something that Keagan thinks he should be doing, like crawling up the stairs, Keagan says "Deker no, don't go up the stairs! Momma take care of it".
I love my boys and hope that they will always love each other.
