Inside Camping

We played inside camping last Friday night!
We had a fire, ate tin foil dinners with dutch oven muffins, roasted smores on the fireplace, did some fishing, and "slept" in the tent.  Eli even drew pictures of trees to hang on the walls in the hallway so he and Lilly could go "hiking". The kids thought it was great, and we all slept in our own beds, what more could you want from a camping experience?

Fall Fun

Our beautiful tree in the front yard suddenly dropped half it's leaves yesterday.
Eli asked if he could take it up (what kid doesn't love raking?), after making a huge pile the jumped, rolled and played, eventually spreading the pile around the yard again.  Luckily, since he loves raking, Eli gathered them all up again and then they spread them around the yard again!  I can't believe how long this lasted, and how many leaves were inside Lilly's clothes at bath time!!
