Camping they will go

My girls kept saying how unfair it was that the boys got to go camping all the time.  So the boys took the girls camping in the back yard.  They even made a fire in the little bbq grill  (sorry forgot to take a pic of that one) and ate marshmallows.

I soon hear:
"It smells like smoke and bug spray."
"The boys so need to take showers."
"Camping is so uncomfortable."
"I think I will try sleeping on the swing."

"There are too many bugs."
"What was that noise?"
"I can't take it any longer."
"I am soooo looking forward to real camping with the scouts this weekend."
"I want to sleep inside."
"Me too."
"At least we tried"
"Do you think they want to do this again?"
"I hope not."
"I get first shower."
"Me next."
"I get the other shower."
"I don't need a shower."
"Oh yes you do."
"Deal with it."
"Can we paint our nails when the boys are camping this weekend?"

And now silence!

Alliances have changed

All spring and summer my kids lived in the pool.

The last couple weeks it has been deemed too cold to swim in the pool so it has been left abandoned.

Alliances have changed... and their favorite place to hang out now?  

The hot tub.

One Size Fits All

I made a new hat and wrist warmers from a one size fits all pattern.  Though I think it fits some better than others.

The boys did help me out in seeing if one size
does fit all but requested no pictures.
