so last night mrs. viking n i were up to wellesley to watch the santa claus parade as Anaara, our 8 yr old grand daughter was participating with her brownies group. they did great by the way! afterwards we went back to my daughters to enjoy the apple pie mrs. viking brought up with us. all the while there Anaara was regaling us with escapades n stories from brownies and the topic turned to them going campin’ ….”papa, i’m gonna show them real camping n camp like you showed us when you took us out last summer!” that’s my girl!!!!
