The Nana, 7 kids and a tent


A couple of weekends ago, my mom had a "cuz buzz". She took my 4 kids and 3 of their cousins (her nieces and nephew), ages 2 to 13 and slept in this tent for 2 nights on the side of her house!
They made crafts, played play-doh, made smores and had an awesome time!
In the mean time, I had some wonderful alone time with the husband.
The kids were thrilled and now I do not have to sleep in the backyard with them!!
Woo Hoo!
Thanks Mom!
It was one of those perfect end of summer things.
We are blessed.

  10. Hi! I'm your newest follower from the Social Parade hop. I noticed the camping post, and had to leave my comment here. I absolutely LOVED camping as a child, and I'm working on getting my hubbie into it. He's not into the wilderness, and bug thing! Ha! Your mom was so great for helping out. That's what moms are for, right? Anyways, I hope you'll stop by and follow me back! Have a great weekend!
