Daddy & MJ Camping

Matt has been so excited about taking MJ camping. We thought for her first time, the backyard would be perfect =) So, one warm day this last week, we decided to give it a try. We all were outside to set up the tent in the afternoon.

As soon as it was up, the girls wanted to play in it. So, we all took off our shoes and hung out in the tent for a while. It was so fun for Matt and I to watch the girls "explore" this new fort/house/castle/tent or whatever else they were imagining it to be =)

Michaela was so excited to find this little pocket...she thought it was just PERFECT for Doggy to hang out in. He actually slept there!

When it was bed time, Matt and MJ headed out to the tent. He was well prepared and I was impressed as to how well he had this all thought out. He had everything in the tent waiting for them once night time came. He even got MJ's old potty chair out from the attic in case she had to go in the middle of the night! They had a blast. Matt said that MJ was so excited and not scared at all. They watched a movie on Matt's laptop, which MJ thought was too cool. MJ fell asleep out there and they were warm, but Matt was scared the temperature would drop too much later, so around 11:30 pm, he brought her in. In the morning when she woke up, she was disappointed that she was not in the tent. Matt explained and assured her that as soon as it got a little warmer, they would go camping again!!
