Camping in the Backyard

Over memorial weekend we were talking about how much fun it would be to go camping, but it was just too hot. Sunday night Lyric asked daddy if they could camp in the backyard. The weather had cooled down some with the rain, so he said sure. They could set up the two man tent. Well, when he started to look for the two man tent he was having some trouble finding it... He asked me if I had seen it. Hum? Let me think?... Are you talking about the two man tent we had to throw away when we hiked up Guadalupe Peak? Oh, yea, the zipper broke:-) At this point it was too late! The five year old had it in her mind that they were camping. So,he set up the hotel. This was our view from the backdoor.
It was like 9:00 or 9:30 when they started setting it all up and they were hungry. So, mama made them a camping snack. Story and Cadence fell asleep inside the house, so it was just Daddy and Lyric in the tent. The next morning Cadence went out and sat beside Lyric and read book while she waited for her to wake up.
Lyric wanted to camp out every night! Unfortunately, there was a chance of rain, so Daddy had to take the tent down. Good times and good memories!
