S'nores

This past weekend Lane had to go out of town with work. He wasn't too far from home, but he was out of town none-the-less. It was my first go at having the kids for a few nights all to myself. The night before he left he asked me if it was a bath night. Though the kids had a bath the night before that I told him that they needed baths because I wasn't sure if they'd get one at all while he was gone. Lucky for the kids, they were bathed, fed, and even had a few out of the house outings including a hike and church on Sunday morning. All in all I'd say it was a good weekend with just the 3 of us.

To make the weekend more fun and enjoyable for Eden {Hunter didn't notice the change of pace, of course} we had a camping trip planned - in the living room!
She learned what a s'more  - or s'nore, to Eden - was, so I promised her we'd bust out the tent, watch a movie, make s'mores and sleep in the tent. We did all of the above, but sleeping in the tent was vetoed by Eden. I think she liked the excitement of the idea, but when it came down to it, she wanted nothing to do with it. I was ok with that because I wasn't thrilled with the idea of sleeping on the floor anyways!

Before we headed to {my} bed we watched Happy Feet 2 from the comforts of our tent and ate our s'nores together.

We had a great night and were able to sleep comfortably!! This was my kind of camping, especially since I did it as a solo parent.
