The boys had their first camp-out experience on Friday night. Dingdad and Yaya built a new sunroom/porch and on top of it is a roof with a little gate all around it. Dingdad thought that would be the perfect place to set up a tent and sleep under the stars. The boys were thrilled to say the least. We headed over to their house after naps on Friday to get everything ready. They enjoyed watching/helping Dingdad set up the tent.
Little Miss wanted in on the action as well.
We ate dinner together and then they settled in to sleep. David said it took them a while to settle down and go to sleep but once they fell asleep they did great. Austin woke up once cold but besides that they slept all the way through the night.
When Miller woke up the next morning the first thing he said was "this is the best day ever". I think they both had a great first camp-out experience and are ready to do it again. Austin has already said his 6th birthday will be a camp-out party with 2 of his little friends.
Maggie, Yaya, and I slept inside in our warm beds and that was just perfect with us.
