I always have the best intentions of posting about our weekends on Mondays (naturally) however I'm usually so pooped when Monday comes around that I don't want to do a blog post. 
So Tuesdays it is. 
(unless I'm feeling super ambitious)

This last weekend we finished painting the dining room (I'll post pictures soon) and we also hosted a backyard campout for all of our friends with kids (or ones on the way).

We had a lot of fun regardless of the fact that Chris and I were the only ones sleeping in our backyard come morning...which is exactly why we didn't all go to a campground in the first place.
FYI: Camping with kids is hard!

On to the camp out...

Bennett chillin and waiting for friends to show up:
 we love our friends!:
 good food:
 watermelon is a must while camping:
the thousand island mysteriously exploded when Chris opened it:
 Lauren teaching B how to drink out of a hose:
(thanks lolo)
 pool time with the kids:
(including furry ones)
 fingerpainting is fun:
 Bennett didn't really think so:
(he doesn't enjoy being dirty and therefore really disliked that I put his hand in the paint)
 it's not camping without muddy buddies:
 tent setup in the dark:
(how many grown men does it take to set up a tent?)
 our new fire pit that our awesome friend Jordan made:
(we said we wanted it just like this one
It's exact. How amazing is he?!)
...and of course we had smores. 
this may need to be an annual thing.

    It was so fun! I'm glad you guys enjoyed some of our smores stuff even though we had to leave early. The fire pit Jordan made for you guys looks so awesome, we want one too now!
