camp out

i was watching jon and kate +8 and she had a little camp out in her backyard. what a great idea. i got evan all excited to sleep in a tent, even though i don't think he even knew what a tent was until we set it up. he loved every minute of getting ready for the big night. we even had smores. we got all settled in our sleeping bags and then someone forgot to turn off the sprinklers. it scared evan right out of his sleeping bag and right into the house. that was it for him. i really wanted to go inside and get into my big comfy bed but jess was already sound asleep and i couldn't leave her all alone all night. lily was too scared of the wind, brendan didn't think there was room for him and rick said he would sleep inside in case ruby woke up in the night. what a guy. anyhoo i stayed out in the tent and it was just like sleeping in the great outdoors. i was hot, it was noisy i tossed and turned all night and couldn't wait for morning to come so i could get up. maybe next year i will have a few more takers on my big camp out!

pig tails

oh how excited i am. ruby will sit and let me do her hair. so i was able to comb all 20 strands of hair she has into pig tails. there really is nothing cuter than piggy tails- especially on my little 1 year old! and that dimple....
