The boys slept in their own tent next to ours both nights. Elmer slept like a champ - he loves his tent and his sleeping bag. While it took him a long time for fall asleep because he wanted to know what was going on outside the tent, he slept all night until the morning. Arthur went to sleep pretty well, especially when Chris got out the guitar and sang some bedtime songs, but he woke up both nights pretty early. This time, I brought him into our tent with us. The first night, I laid him down on the bed, turned around to zip up the tent, and he was already dead asleep when I climbed into bed! So then we sort of got a little more sleep - he hogs the bed and is quite the wiggler in his sleep.

It was a really great trip, with beautiful weather and great company. Best of all, we reignited Pat and Pam's love for camping, so we can look forward to more camping trips with them in the future!

Our first night was spoiled by a very large group of campers setting up camp starting at 10 PM and not finishing up until 2 AM - the cars just kept coming! And again, Arthur woke up about 3, but I just brought him in with us again and we all got a little more sleep.

Since August and September have other trips (posts coming soon), we'll probably squeeze in one last camping trip for the year in October. We love these trips!
|Love all my boys so much!|
