into the wild




My husband is the best. dad. ever.! Friday night he slept out in the backyard with Tommy. He sent me to the store to purchase a tent, sleeping bags and extra flashlights. The got out the camping chairs and Tommy's little picnic table. They ate corn-on-the-cob and hot dogs and I made them smores in the oven. They went hiking on the golf course and read stories with their flashlights. They went out at 6 pm and stayed out all night, until, that is it started pouring at 5:10 am, when they came running in, Tommy still delighted with the whole experience. Three days later Tommy hasn't stopped talking about it. My favorite thing is that Tymon hasn't either.

Granny Schaefer thought this was the cutest thing ever and really chuckled about it. That made me very happy.

Thanks for being so wonderful to my grandson.

So much fun! Garett will camp out with Corbin often, which is great, but at the same time- he has to go to bed early and then I have no one to snuggle. We haven't been real camping since Isaac was 4 weeks old. We are going this weekend, so I will let you know how it goes- My kids love being outside, I just get nervous that I won't get any sleep because of Isaac.
by the way, I love Johnny's room- some day I might finish a room. cross my fingers.

Wait, you don't have a tent? How did that happen? Have you never been camping?
