The campout was a big success. The kids loved it! We started by just playing in the tent, then we roasted hot dogs and made s'mores. Next we headed out for a nature walk, but after the kids got completely soaked we decided that hot cocoa was next on the menu:). Scott wanted us to go look at the stars after dark, so it was my job to keep the kids awake until close to 9. This helped me to get through reading the 30 books, another item on my 30 x 30 list. Scott tried to teach Kiersten how to play UNO. It was quite funny. She did really well to start, but then started to put the cards in her mouth and throw them at the other players. We finished off the night by looking at stars and then heading in to sleep. I heard Garrison whispering to Scott for at least 20 minutes before falling asleep. I think it went really well, other than the fact that Elyssia flails a lot in her sleep:( I was the recipient of several kicks and whacks. Some bears stopped by to see about extra food, but Scott was wise enough to put the food up high:) Copy and paste this link to see pics from all our adventures:
Tonight we had a different adventure. We're practicing for the medieval feast and I took some pictures to whet your appetites for the real thing. There was a big battle between the knights and the dragon(Scott) to prevent him from kidnapping the fair maidens(E, K, and A). Too fun:)
Thank you Kerry for the cute pillowcase dresses!
