I had promised the kids we'd go camping last weekend, but after talking it over with Mr. Wonderful ;) we decided that we probably shouldn't since we had too much going on. So since the kids hearts were set on it, and they had been looking forward to it all week, we decided to have a backyard campout instead. Why not? It was tons of fun... we roasted hot dogs, marshmallows, and sang campfire songs. The kids absolutely LOVED it! Then we all got in our jammies and crashed in our new pop-up camper. In my opinion, it's the best way to camp! We got to be outdoors together, but the shower/microwave/computer/etc. were all still accesible. :)
The kids making "snores".
Baby Jakey is finally old enough to indulge (he takes it very seriously)! Check out those chubby fingers... Ahh! I just wanna eat 'em!
Singing and cuddling around the campfire.
I always thought campers were for prissy girls. Jon had to convince me to get one because I've always loved camping in a tent, but now I am so converted! We even got to plug in a heater, and watch a movie after the kiddos went to bed. And the best part... NO bugs.
