She wants to go camping with him and his family for her birthday. Despite Morgan's protests, his parents call her family and before he can say "no," the two families have arranged for Aldeen to join them. While camping, Morgan tries to outdo Aldeen at every turn but he soon discovers that Aldeen loves camping and the great outdoors. She is a natural camper. In fact, maybe she is too good. Morgan has the sneaking suspicion that Aldeen is out camping him. Drastic times call for drastic measures, so Morgan decides to scare her at the campfire. He tells a spooky tale then discovers that he has spooked himself instead. In fact, he believes he sees a monster heading straight for them when, surprise, it is Aldeen's mom and grandmother with a birthday surprise. But the real surprise is for Morgan who discovers a new friendship with an unlikely acquaintance. Reviewer: L. A. Gallaway
