Great American Backyard Campout

Bet you didn't even know there was such a thing, did ya?

NWF sponsors the event and we joined in the fun. I use the term 'we' loosely here- someone had to sleep in the house with the babies and the one misbehaving four year old!

We invited a few friends to join the festivities. There was hot dogs and s'mores to be eaten. All the kids decorated their own cups went swimming and frolicked about. It was very fun for all- well, except Abe who ended up sleeping in the house- oops, maybe next time!

Leo tries to figure out which way is up.

If you wrestle it to the ground it's 10 points!


The big boys who braved the big outdoors in their very own tent!

Goofy boys!

Some swimming before sleeping!

And some more wrestling, of a different type!

And the little boys getting settled, yeah right!

Roasting Away!

Endless S'mores! Mmmmmm...

Your new picture is just great! I love it!!!

All of your children are so terrific. I am thinking more and more about becoming foster parents as my nursing degree comes closer. THey have special programs for foster care for nurses who get kids that have serious medical issues. Your family is inspiring and I can't help but think ours is not complete yet...we will see.

What great pictures! My kids love camping and the backyard is just as much fun to them as the real campgrounds.
