Packing Race: Son #3 vs. Son #4

Sons #3-4 were feeling left out of things here on the blog after Sons #1-2 wrote a post recently, so we wanted to give them a chance to shine. Here they are competing for the title of House Packing Champion before our recent overnight trip to Fort Mims.


I don’t know if it was because of the race, but both of these boys ended up forgetting to pack something they needed or wanted. Next time we’ll use a checklist.

This is the first video we have ever uploaded to YouTube or edited with iMovie. As you can see, we have a learning curve ahead of us, not only with software but also with controlling the conditions of the shoot. You can see Son #5 (age 1) trying to interrupt the proceedings about halfway through and voicing his displeasure when Daddy removed him from the scene. But maybe someday we’ll be real videographers.

  1. That was really fun to watch! Even though I’ve backpacked for over 4 years, I’m still terrible at packing and I often leave things behind.
