I must confess that I do not really know where Bruin Lake is, and that
The kids are probably better than fine with their perfectly capable Daddy, but since when has that stopped a mom and (ahem) control-freak from worrying? Our buddy who owns the pop-up camper is practically a professional camping expert, and was telling us how easy it is to set up the camper once you get the hang of it. He bragged that he could get it parked and completely set up in 20 minutes. His wife, who is my friend and kindred spirit, bragged that when she goes away for a weekend, in 20 minutes she can have the valet bring up her luggage, open the mini bar and have room service ordered. So, she and I spent our Friday evening together with good wine and good food.
Needless to say, the 'Dads & Kids' weekend is good for the moms, too.
