Backyard Camping

 Our favorite campers, setting up the tent in our backyard
It got down to 36 degrees on Saturday night! Brrr!
and they still managed to get up and go to church with us on Sunday!

I haven't been online much for the past several days, for 'the days were just packed.'  We got a phone call from our daughter and her husband, letting us know that they could come up from Indiana for a few days, then got an e-mail (with the subject: Blueberry Muffins) from our son from Minnesota, asking if he could bring the boys out (and when have we ever said 'no'???)

It was a wonderful weekend for us, and I wanted to share some photos.

 There's more than one way to climb a tree.

It really looks like those fingers are going to get stepped on, doesn't it!

 How Baby Henry has grown!

and does he look like his dad or what!

...and of course, adoring his mama.

Now everyone's gone home and I hear only the sound of Bridger and Misty breathing. Okay, make that Bridger breathing and Misty whining.
I wish all the kids lived within an hour's drive. Wouldn't that be nice!

And yes, they got their blueberry muffins on Sunday morning. :-)

Looks like you had a great weekend. I'm so lucky that our one grandchild..Daisy 4yrs old...lives ten minutes away, AND I watch her during the week when momma and daddy works. Our other daughter lives 7 1/2 hrs away so when she has a baby we won't see them very often.

I used to love camping in our backyard! What a great surprise to have the family at your house like that! Thanks for sharing your pictures! Can't believe how big Henry is.. my how time flies!

They are all adorable!! And baby Henry is getting big!! What a cutie!! Yeah, I couldn't see you telling your kids, "no you can't bring them". :)

36 degrees? When I left my house at 7am this morning it was already 82 degrees. So, when is your annual Texas visit again??

Hope you are doing well!!

Oh how fun! The Grandparents are going to be visiting us soon and my two can not wait! It would be nice if families lived closer but it looks like you all treasure every minute of your visits~

What a fun time it looks like everyone had. Your grand-boys are all so handsome and Henry has grown so fast! Glad you had such a great time. :)

Some nice natural photos here. It's a shame they live so far away but it will make the time that you have with them all the more special. That's a class photo of sitting on top of the ladders in the tree ... a photo of 100 captions.

Grandchildren are absolutely amazing! We are finding that out first hand now. I really enjoyed seeing your precious little ones and the fun pictures of the backyard camping and the tree climbing. What a blessing to have them come visit, huh? I completely "get" it. Thank you for sharing!
