Happy Camper

Jay and Daddio did some "camping" this weekend in the backyard.

We thought this would be good training for a future camping excursion--maybe as far as Tannehill-- 1.8 miles from our house. (We also knew we had no idea what to expect, so it would be good to educate the parents about camping with a toddler.)

Jay liked playing with all of the tent pieces while Daddio assembled the tent and was thrilled with the end result.

They played in the tent for a few hours before and after dinner, then Mommy came out around bedtime with pjs and snacks. Jay thought it was so fun, was curious about all of the nighttime noises, but for the most part we did our normal routine and Jay fell fast asleep. Mommy snuck out of the tent right after and Jay and Daddio stayed the night.

It was about 2 a.m. when Daddio tucked a still-sleeping Jay into bed. It had turned about 20 degrees cooler this weekend and Daddio thought Jay may get a little chill, so in they came.

We had lots of fun and it was so much easier than I expected. This was a fun "first" and I think that the next camp out will be happening very soon.
