Happy Campers

(Gotta love Mei Lin's post-pigtail hair)

has been talking about camping out all winter long. She had been patiently telling us we said she could go camping when it was warm enough at night. So, daddy took the girls camping in the backyard over the holiday weekend. We had dinner at some friends' house and found ourselves locked out of our house, so they got started a little late at night, but they all had a great time. They read books and talked before falling asleep with Levi just outside the tent for protection.
Next is fishing. Miyah talks about fishing all the time, too. Sounds like some good daddy/daughter time. I don't have the patience for fishing.

The next day the girls and their neighbor friends had a picnic in the play tent.

Miyah loves catching bugs. Today it was a slug and a pill bug. She liked watching the slime trail left by the slug and named him "Sluggy." Very original.

I think my girls are happiest when they're outside. The neighborhood kids practically live in our yard and they LOVE to run, jump on the trampoline, swing, dig in the sand, and play, and play, and play. Ahh...spring is wonderful!
Tomorrow we're hoping to get the little pool out and fill it up. The pool in our subdivision opened over the weekend and they had a great time. I was concerned they'd have forgotten how to swim since it's been so long since lessons, but Pat said they did great.
