Easy Adventure with Cam

My son Cameron and I decided to go on a little adventure yesterday afternoon. I asked my older son Joshua to come, but he wasn’t in the mood. So off the two of us went. Cam is the perfect candidate for this type of adventure, because I had no plans on where exactly we were headed, the only plan was to get in the car and get going. Lucky for me, Cam has the personally to roll with that type of blind faith that life will lead us in the right direction.

We ended up heading up to Knox Mountain Park with the idea of driving farther up the mountain than we had previously went. When we arrived we discovered the top half of the mountain was close off. Cam suggested we just park and wonder down one of the many paths at the part of the mountain we were at. Good idea!

We wondered around, jumping on and off the trail to smaller trials, looking over cliffs and enjoying the views. We had no stop conversations about life and the world around us with a dash of imagination tossed in there. These are the types of days I live for and I was so happy to be doing it with my son.

    • Totally! I tend to just fly by the seat of my pants with out planning stuff so if someone is good with that it makes getting out together a lot easier haha. And yes, soooo fast it’s frighting! I gotta take in this time while I have it.

  1. It’s all about making memories. He will remember this over anything you buy for him. My boys were brought in adventure and to this day they are adventurous and seek it out. My youngest told me on the last big hike we did together that he loves how I’m down for just about anything.

    That’s what my Dad used to do. He would get us three boys into the back seat and we’d “go for a drive”. We never knew where we were going. I tried that with my kids. It didn’t work. They always wanted to know where we were going, for how long, etc. Eventually, it became too hard to convince them, so I gave up.
