Early in 2015, Sam started talking about his "8-year Old Trip." I have no idea where he got this idea, but I know he is not the first one to think of it. His first proposed destination was Hawaii. I told him this was not an option, though I would love to visit Hawaii someday. After suggesting a few other locations, Sam did what most people do when looking for an idea: he Googled it. The result of his query was Chickasaw National Recreation Area in Sulphur, OK. This seemed more reasonable, so we booked a camping site and put a date on the calendar. This was my first camping trip with just one of the boys, and Sam and I had a great time. You can see some of our pictures below. Nate and I are heading to a different spot in about a week, and I will write about that when we get back.
