Josie keeps talking about going camping in the woods. So Mike got Chris' tent and mattress and we set it up down in our bottom. We wanted to make sure she would do okay with it before we went far from home. She was so excited! While daddy and mommy were trying to set up the tent, she and Gertie just played in the bottom picking up "lemons" (aka, walnuts) and throwing sticks.
Once we got the tent set up, we ran to the store so she could get a "treat". She picked out gummy worms, licorice and a cherry frosty. We settled in, turned on the laptop and watched Fox & The Hound until she fell asleep. Now that's camping!
She did perfectly, the only downside, she got up at 6:00 in the morning. Which didn't make for a very fun day, but she did really good. And slept wonderfully. Dad & Mom on the other hand, Dad was falling off of the mattress into the floor of the tent and Mom was stuck up against the tent wall with only one direction to lay, otherwise I rolled to the center because the mattress was losing air.
