Backyard Camping Adventure

by Megan

Yesterday, we decided to go camping in the backyard. We want to take the boys camping but thought we should give it a “test run” first.

We ate our dinner outside on the deck. We had hotdogs, watermelon and chips. All very yummy! Oh, I guess I should mention that our hotdogs were wrapped in bacon. Yum!!!!! ;-)

Later, when the temps cooled down, we had a bonfire and roasted s’mores. The boys had fun staying up late and being outside. They especially enjoyed their glow sticks. Once it was dark enough, I gave them some glow sticks to play with. They were a hit!

Brothers hanging out. They had to sit next to each other for most of the night.

I had to take a picture of them when I came into the tent. Noah’s butt is in the air and Eli is all sprawled out.

Our neighbor, Dave (his wife is Megan – what are the odds?), came over and hung out with us for several hours. We had a good time chatting and getting to know him better. This was my view for a few hours. Serenity!!

Eli was awake kind of early, which was fine, we needed to go let out Riley (friend’s dog). I snapped this picture of Noah. Such a cutie!!!

One last picture before our camping adventure was over. The beautiful sun glistening off our tent.
