Wimped out

So, last night we decided to have a family campout in the back yard. We had so much fun eating hot dogs, chasing dirty shoes out of the tent, roasting marshmallows, and eating smores (dragon food!). Then we all snuggled into our tent with just a little less room than we wanted, but hoping for coziness anyway. We curled up under our blankets and tried to sleep. The kids were restless, and Zoey was cranky from her shots, but eventually everyone settled down. Then the temperature went down too. Holey Moley... it's been a long time since I camped out in Utah, don't know how I ever slept there. I think the temp was in the high 40s, but some time around 1:30 or 2:00 am. Mom and Dad decided go ferry all the little ones inside so we could sleep in our nice warm bed. I know... we're total wimps!

Next time... Air Mattress and long johns will be in order.


P.S. I'll put up some pics later.

It is way colder with an air mattress. We we camp in the backyars we take the mattresses off the kids beds. They cover the entire floor of the tent, we're wimps too!
