Last night on "Chrissy & Mr Jones," Pudie was done with camp for the summer so Chrissy suggested they go hiking as a family. The only problem was getting Jim to come along.
Pudie thought the best idea would be to trick him into thinking they were going to his favorite sneaker store. Jim got suspicious when the drive got too long. They pulled up to Bear Mountain and Jim was not amused, but he warmed up to it. He went from running from deer to pretending to meditate on a rock. Jim has got to work on those yoga poses.
Hiking was a successful family bonding trip and Pudie had so much fun that he wanted to take it up a notch and go camping. Since Jim is a bit of a sucker for his son and felt bad when Pudie told him he was on his phone too much, Jim said yes to camping after Pudie talked him down into doing it in their backyard.
The first thing they needed to do was get some camping gear. Jim got his payback for the hiking trickery by getting Pudie to “test” a sleeping bag and trapping him in it in the middle of the store. It’s so cute to see Jim let the kid in him show when he’s around his son.
Chrissy stayed inside away from the bugs while the boys set up camp outside. It was a win-win situation. Pudie was glad he was with his dad instead of Jim working or being in the studio all day. Jim was glad to be doing “weird stuff” with his son and making memories that he never got to make with his own father. They lit their camp fire, set up their tent, roasted marshmallows, made s’mores and soaked in their father-son time.
Aw, Poppa Jones.
