Backyard Camping

We have been talking about camping out in the backyard since the spring...we didn't get around to it then...and of course summer came and it was too hot...and now fall is here and the tempature is just right. We decided to go ahead and pitch a tent in the backyard and go camping. Weston was very excited and so were we! We grilled some hot dogs, ate cheese puffs, and made s'mores! Natalie had a first that night, she climbed the ladder to the playhouse all by herself and after she realized she could do it there was no stopping her...sigh. David made a great campfire we had a lot of silly fun, played go fish and snuggled in for the night. Then the "what's that" and "why's" began...and were never ending. Our sweet son had a lot of questions about sleeping outside in a tent and all the wonderful noises of the outdoors. Natalie was rather annoyed with all the chatter and kept "shhhing" Weston, but he just continued chatting away. :) We ended up sleeping inside, Natalie was extremely happy to go back inside and sleep in her bed. Weston was a little sad, but we told him that we will camp again, and that made him happy!

It was a fun night, it will be fun to go somewhere and camp...maybe next spring?

Looks like fun. Wish we had a tent. The boys would LOVE it!

You'll have to stop over on my blog and check out the diaper bag that I finally finished! I think I'll make one for myself now!
