We're just city girls that like roughing it

The girls have been begging us to go camping this year.  So, one night in August, I set the tent up in the backyard and took them "camping".  They were thrilled.

 Annika had some crazy hair going on.  And yes, she is naked.  She decided that she was too hot, so she slept in her underwear.  What a crazy girl.  I was wearing clothes and was still cold during the night!  She kept kicking off her covers.

It's very hard to take a picture in the dark...the flash is 50 times brighter!

We had a great time.  There was a lot of laughter.  At one point, around 11PM, we started hearing a sound that sounded like one of Annika's toys that was dying a slow and painful death.  The girls were a little bit scared, so I sent them out with their flashlights to find out what the noise was while I stayed in the tent, safe.  Someone had to be by the phone so I could call 911 in case if was something other than a toy.  It turns out that she had left her toy CD player outside and the batteries were practically dead, so we took them out and everything was fine.

The next morning, we woke up to find out that the local wildlife slept with us.

Aah yes, and now the other one is naked.

What a cutie.

And, what is a camping trip without s'mores?  This was our breakfast.

I changed it up a little bit, since a s'more has marshmallow in it.  Instead of chocolate on top, I topped the crescents with marshmallow topping.

Soooooo good.

Tyler was quite tickled that although he didn't get to sleep in the tent with us, we shared our breakfast with him.

  1. You are a wonderful Mom...making wonderful memories with your children! You ROCK!! Love the pics that you share with us too. (I'm very glad the photos include you too - so often, photos don't include the mom - usually the photo-taker, which is very important for the kids/family when looking back years later...) :)
