camping in the backyard!

On Friday night, Daddy had a surprise for us - camping in the backyard!

Mama, Anna, and Jesse slept inside, but before Anna went to bed, we read our bedtime story in the tent.

Mama joined us for s'mores! (Thanks, Big Guy and Nonna for letting us borrow your fire pit.) And Daddy made a perfect fire for roasting marshmallows!


Then we told our neighbor, Larry, all about our surprise!

As the sun went down, the fireflies came out, so we finally got to use this jar Nana gave us to catch fireflies.

We had so much fun camping!

Thanks, Daddy, for taking us camping in the backyard! When can we do it again?
