    I love this! So creative! It brings back the memories of more than twenty years ago when I was at camp with my three boys! You will pull this out of your mom treasure chest years from now, too, and all the wonderful stinkiness, sweat, laughter, and tears will be fresh to your senses. Love you and love yours.

I love comments! Go ahead. Give me a piece of your mind.
