Backyard camping

A couple weeks ago we had a camp out in our very own backyard.  We wanted to get one more camping trip in before the weather got too cold, but we didn't want to pack up all our camping gear and drive far away.  The backyard seemed like a good solution.  The girls played on the swing set while Dan (Maddie helped) put the tent up.  We started a fire, roasted marshmallows, made s'mores and burned sticks.  Mama and Eleanor slept in the house while Daddy and the big girls slept in the tent.  It was VERY cold that night and around 5:00 in the morning the campers trudge in from the yard and climbed into their warm beds.  It was a fun experience and one that we will for sure be repeating! 

Look at my dirty faced, runny nosed, barefoot child.  Awesome!

I know it doesn't look like she enjoys the slide, but I swear she does!
