Playing at Camping

I set the tent up in anticipation of a few really nice days.  The weather is supposed to be warm and sunny this week and I want to play outside as much as possible before the long wet winter sets in.  I tied pieces of material on the tent's 'guy wires' to keep the kids from running into did help a little,  they  pulled on the ropes  rather than running into them.  After a few trips around the tent the ropes were sagging, the tent stobs pulled  several inches from the soft earth, and there was a definite sagging to the tent itself.  But, the kids did not get hurt running into the ropes so, mission accomplished!.  

We ate our lunch outside, then Sophia made a pretend fire pit with pretend rocks she carried from the woods edge. She built a imaginary fire and we ate pretend marshmallows which we  browned to perfection.

  Sophia took my picture as we all relaxed in the warm sunshine before heading in for our naps.  WHAT A FINE MORNING!

  1. Mom, this is SO SWEET! What great memories you are making with those sweet babies. They are so lucky to have you for a grandma! On another note, I believe Sophia has your photography talent. That is a beautiful picture of you! I hope I am as beautiful as you are inside and out when I grow up! I love you, Mommy!
