Gadget-daddy's gone for a couple of days.
He's taken off with a bunch of strangers to go hike up a waterfall and camp in the jungle for a night.
This started back a week before Christmas when we were at a friend's Christmas get-together and he chatted with someone about going to waterfalls around Kuala Lumpur.
It seems there's this group on Facebook called Waterfall Survivors and he decided it was time to revive an old passion.
He was all excited about buying a new tent and some camping utilities.
The boys had a great time when Gadget-daddy tested out the tent in the hall.
That was when Micah decided he wanted to go too.
The really funny part was that he wanted to make the new tent look a little worn so that he would not look like a rookie, while he felt he has had more experience camping out (was very active as a scout in his school days) than most people. But of course we didn't do anything to the tent.
Mommy's fun part, of course, was going shopping with him for the food supply and amazed him by knowing which aisle to head to for the specific thing he wanted at the supermarket. :D
Micah's wanting to go along were expressed thus:
"Yes, I want to go. I'm coming along."
"Mommy's not going? Max not going?"
"OK, I'll sleep with you, Dad. We'll sleep in the tent, right?"
Of course we all felt he is just almost ready, but not quite.
Maybe when he turns 5.
He was quite disappointed when he discovered that Gadget-daddy had left early this morning.
Both the boys missed him and asked a few times:
Where is he?
When is he coming back?
Why is it so long?
I want Daddy...
Well, Gadget-daddy will be back tomorrow, and we'll then share some photos.
