Backyard S'mores


We didn't stray far from home this weekend, but we did get a taste of the great outdoors and enjoyed some gooey s'mores by our backyard firepit. Chip and Brock are spending the night in a new dome tent too, complete with a queen airbed and bedding (not just sleeping bags), a dvd player and wireless internet too. They've got a bathroom just inside and down the hallway, fresh hot microwave popcorn and cold beverages to enjoy while they "stay up late". That's about as rough as we all like to "rough it" around here. I know. It's just not the real thing. As far as I'm concerned it's not how far one travels to go camping- it's about the amount of dirt that gets dragged home. There's was more than enough dirt on my kids faces and clothing today that it counts as "real camping" in my book. I'm climbing into a freshly made bed (clean sheets!) after having a steamy shower. That's how I like to end my day of camping!

Had a thought Jody, and maybe I'm not the first one, but have you ever thought about writing a book about all that's happened to you etc.? If not, you should consider it!

That is my kind of camping!! Keith, Matt B and Kevin F went camping in the UP last weekend. They woke up to snow on Sunday morning! Talk about brave. I had no sympathy for them at all. How could I when 2 of them work for the weather service. HELLO!?!?!? Did you not check the forcast before you left?? Keep blogging Jody. It really makes me feel like I still know what is going on with you guys. It gives me something to share at Bible study. Miss you guys.
