BACKYARD FUN

For some reason, my three youngest kids have been having fun playing in the backyard. Believe me when I say that that is the last place you would think they would want to play. Can you say, "Weeds galore?"

Anyway, they just make up their own games, and in the midst of all the chaos back there, they decided to have their own picnic. Bless their hearts for not even caring about how it really looks in the backyard, but just enjoyed having their own little area to themselves.

They even made a tent and wanted to sleep back there last night.

That is where I drew the line.

Every summer The Midge wants to "camp" in the back yard, so I send DialogDog out there with her and they sleep in the tent while I sleep in the house. Of course, they do string power out to the tent so they can watch movies on portable DVD and then they insist to be let inside so they can use the "facilities"...

Oh Alicia, how fun! I love when kids use their imagination and play outside. I remember when my brother and I used to camp out in our backyard with his little pup tent. LOL.

Blessings and love,
Debbie
