Camping Apple Valley Style
. We really like our back yard. We also like the idea of camping, so combine the two and you get Camping Apple Valley style. Camping is fun to do...esp. when you can unzip the zipper to your tent and then open the back door to your house and grab whatever it is you need. It is so fun to watch the kiddos get so excited about the tent, the sleeping bags and being outside. Last weekend, Erik set up the tent. This year went smoothly. We had a campfire and s'mores. To settle down the kids down, I read the book Elmer and the Dragon (that series is such a cute chapter book series). Last time, Ry had to go in early because a bug was staring at him. We are so outdoorsy, aren't we? (to ensure no staring bugs we sprayed the tent this year) We all lasted all night outside this time. In fact, the next thing I knew was Emily waking me up. tap tap "Mom, it is 10 am. Are you going to wake up?" Can you believe I slept OUTSIDE until 10am? I will add that I was not on the air mattress either. Thank goodness for 11am church.
