I have noticed that when I am really having a fun time I either take way too many pictures because I want to capture every moment, or not enough because I’m having such a great time I forget all about pics. Last night was one of the no pic nights. We had planned on going camping with some good friends of ours, but it just wasn’t working out. So instead, we had a bonfire and sleepover. Hot dogs and smores? Yes please!
I did snap a picture of Evangeline while we were setting up. She was so excited about the marshmallows. I just thought she looked funny at her little picnic table with all the food!
The original plan was to sleep in the tent in the yard, but by the end of the bonfire the kids were already too cold and they were all more than happy to go in and watch a movie. They then built forts in their bedrooms and settled down for the night. It went so smoothly and everyone slept great and played awesome all morning!
And one more shot of them all chowing down chocolate chip pancakes, sausage, eggs and oj!
Then this afternoon all the stars magically aligned and I was able to get out and play with my two besties! Between the three of us there are 6 kids under the age of 6 and so for a last minute get-together to happen with only one very well behaved baby it was super exciting (and always much needed)!
We went to a Ginormous Clothes Swap that Jill from Spoils of Wear put together (with lots of help I’m sure) and it was great. I originally didn’t think I would be able to make it but when we cancelled our camping plans, my day opened up! I was getting dressed this morning and got extremely mad at my closet and bagged up three garbage bags full of clothes! Then I remembered today was clothes swap day so I called up my BFF’s and talked them into coming with me.
I wasn’t sure what to expect, but the environment was extremely low key and welcoming. We just arrived and gave them our clothes and they had everything out neatly organized by size and item. I came home with a few fun new finds that I’m really hoping I can incorporate into my wardrobe!
I’m thinking a kids clothes/toy swap is in order…. Anyone?
