The kids have been saving their coins all winter for a tent. Every time they saw a penny, they picked up and announced that it would go in the “tent jar.” After months of talking about camping and prepping for it, we finally got a night under the stars. We planned on two nights at a campground less than two miles from home, but ended up getting a late start due to rain. Luckily, we camped close to home because we had left a few essential items at home: pillows and dinner for the kids! Otherwise, the trip was a success. Delicious dinner, a fun “hike” and marshmallows by the campfire. Instead of ghost stories, the kids each told a story about their invisible friends, Mackie & Suza. They conked out by 9:15 and woke after 7. Not too shabby! We all can’t wait for the next trip!
