Scout Camp was pretty awesome today. The activities have been a lot of fun, but they don’t have anything on a comment that Gavin made today that still has me smiling several hours later.
At one point it was Gavin, Dominic & I were all partnered up and paddling in kayaks at the pond. When we’d decided to move on to a new activity the three of us started walking back through camp. Knowing that Gavin also likes his independence I told him that if he ever wanted to not have me be his buddy (we use the buddy system at camp) I was okay with that and my feelings would not be hurt.
His head turned and he had a very confused look on his face. “Why would I ever want you to not be my buddy and be with me?” He was incredulous and couldn’t understand why I’d ever think that was a legit idea.
My heart melted and I had to fight hard to keep the awesome from leaking out of my eyes.
Bud, thanks for reminding me yet again that best-est buddies will always be best-est buddies. I can’t begin to tell you how much I appreciate this opportunity to experience Scout Camp with you. You’ve reminded me of so many memories I have with my dad while creating so many new memories with you and Dominic. Love you tons Bud!!!
