Passing Notes Today: Mrs. Williams
Hi Girls -
Hi Girls -
|Here's the tent at our campsite (AKA backyard). Pretty obvious that this tent has been packed up for a good eight years.|
|First step, inserting the stakes, um... posts, um...poles.|
|My oldest son was into the tent assembly. My youngest son? He was running around the backyard swinging around some sticks.|
|Zipping and unzipping. Fun for hours.|
|At sunset, it was time to go to bed.|
|Sleep tight. Don't let the mosquitoes bite.|
|Did I say sleep? No way, first the boys had to play with the flashlights.|
|Coolest part of the tent according to my sons? The zipper toggles that glow in the dark.|
|A wiggly sunset picture. I have no idea why it came out this way. Very abstract, no?|
I took one long look at that pretty sunset and then said goodnight to the boys as I walked back into our house. It turns out I really love camping with my boys. They camp. I sleep in a cozy bed where no one steals my sheets, no one wakes me up, and no one makes a peep all night.
The next morning they all joined me for breakfast. My sons looked rested. My husband? Well, in his words, "It was a two-person-tent and I was the third man out." I don't know what he's talking about. I slept like a baby.
