Roughin' It

In lieu of Pizza Party Friday/Family Movie Night, we decided to mix things up a bit. Not that putting on one of J's ties and punching "movie tickets" (J's old business cards) wasn't fun, but in an attempt to be Northwesterners, we opted for "Family Camping Night" instead.

We chowed on tin foil dinners by campfire.

J was first in line for smores.

We cuddled in the tent (as it was Girlie's two-kid princess tent, we took turns--the real tent is yet unpacked) and sang songs like "Home on the Range", which, might I mention, is the Kansas State Song, and "99 Bottles of Root Beer on the Wall", which was clearly J's pick. J also told spooky stories (" was dark and stormy night, and I had to go the GROCERY STORE!!")

The boys were the last ones standing (probably due to a few too many episodes of "Man vs. Wild"--also the reason that we now refer to mac and cheese as 'grubworms' and milk as 'bug juice'). Girlie and I retreated to our beds.

Next step: move this party to the BACK YARD.

Sounds like a lot of fun! I think most Northwesterners actually go camping OUTSIDE, though, Melynie. With REAL bugs.

We have the same jammies - are they Place? We did them in four different colors for Christmas this year. :-) How come you weren't telling scary stories, I'm sure you have a few of your own! Do you do family night every friday? What a fun idea! Our friday nights are typically spent as a family, but I rarely plan something so cute.

Cute little campers. There's nothing like the outdoors--even if you are inside. Fun activity luff!
