It’s pretty sad that we got a tent as a wedding gift almost seven years ago and we’ve never used it until this past weekend.  We went out to Saylorville Lake with our friends/neighbors the Hoffmans and Schwartz’s.  We went out Friday evening and got the tent all set up for Brad and Jaxson.  Jaxson was soooo excited to be camping with Daddy.  We hung out with everyone that evening and enjoyed grilling and smores.  The kids had a great time playing and riding their bikes together.  Holden and I came back that night to sleep in our own beds since there wasn’t room for us in the tent anyways.  The boys got home Saturday morning and Jaxson had to tell me all about it.  We decided that in the next couple of years we would like to do more camping as a family since I’m actually finding that it’s pretty fun.  I did not grow up camping, but Brad did.  We would like to upgrade our tent to something a little bigger/better and that would actually fit the whole family and maybe have plumbing.

They had supper first, don’t worry.
