Our camping adventure

And yes that would be in our backyard. We have a hard time finding when Ryan and I can take off work to go somewhere for the weekend so we decided to camp in our backyard. Each kid had something that they wanted to see happen for our camping "trip." Hunter wanted to use the big tent and Jacob wanted to roast marshmallows.

We got everything ready while the sun was up. I managed to put up the monstrosity of a tent all by myself! The boys were so excited. We had hot dogs on the patio for dinner and then proceeded to roast marshmallows. They love the roasting part but don't really want to eat the roasted marshmallows. After that we got flashlights and read A Camping Spree with Mr. Magee. I was the chosen one who got to sleep with the boys since Ryan injured his shoulder playing Wii throwing the kids in the pool. The boys and I snuggled down for a hopefully peaceful night under the stars.

There was some talking but both boys were exhausted. Once they finally calmed down they were out for the count...thank you to the powers that be!! I only woke up a few times due to being chilly and once when Hunter wanted to come next to me but overall I slept ok. Of course the boys slept great and amazingly they weren't up at 5:30 when the sun gets up. We all slept until 7:00!! Besides a sore back the trip went exceptionally well.
