Tents

Tim and I had the boys over last night . We put out tents for them in the back yard. We eat our pizza out there and played until the rain came. Dylan wanted to sleep out there but I told him we didn't have sleeping bags. The tents only sleeps 3 it isn't big enough for all 4 of us to sleep. We really just got it to play not for camping . Maybe when they are older we will get a bigger one. Then it really started storming again. We came inside. Neither of the boys like thunder or lightning. They kept asking Tim how long the storm was going to last. Harley fell asleep in our bed and Tim laid down with Dylan til he went to sleep.

Once it got dark the kids enjoyed playing in the tent with their cars and of course they had their flash lights.
Once it started raining alot we came inside and they took their baths and got ready for a little movie in Pappy's bed. As they were getting ready for bed Dylan Austin told me that the tents were a great idea. As long as they had fun that is all that matters. It is suppose to rain off and on all weekend. No soccer game today it was cancelled because the heavy rains. The fields are all flooded.

You and Tim are just the best grandparents ! I wish I had grandparents to set up tents and do cool things with me. The boys look like they had tons of fun!
Tim looks like he was pooped out at the end of the day :-)

Susan, those tents are great! How much will you pay me to NOT tell the boys they don't need sleeping bags to sleep outside. LOL.
