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!:
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:
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.
