After the indoor camp out the girls have been asking to sleep outside. Megan invited her cousins for a sleepover last night. I wasn't sure that we would be able to sleep out since the beginning of the week started with extreme heat. Luckily a cool front came through and yesterday and today will be pleasant before the heat and humidity return Saturday. Thankful!
The girls were very excited to see the tent go up.
No camp out would be complete without a fire and marshmallows!
Then it was time to chase lightening bugs before turning in.
Everyone made it all night in the tent! Other then my aching back it was really nice. We often sleep with the windows open but the sounds were very different being out in a tent. We heard the raccoons chasing each other up and down the trees at the back of our property. There were sounds of crickets, tree frogs and giggling girls! Fun was had by all and this is something we will make a tradition.
I hope you are taking time to enjoy the simple moments!
