I don't know which one had the idea first, but sometime during the beginning hours of the day, the plan started to take shape. And the excitement grew as the day progressed. They were going to camp out in the yard all by themselves!
Daddy helped pitch the tent and I offered suggestions as to what they might want to take with them.
As the hour grew near, they were practically giddy with excitement.
Sleeping bags were unrolled and pillows fluffed.
Maybe next summer...
