Cousin camp was a little later today, so we went to the so-called car park around the corner from us for a picnic lunch.
Why was cousin camp delayed you ask? Well, when I asked the kids what they wanted to do for "cousin camp", the first thing they all said was "SLEEPOVER"
I can't remember who first suggested putting up a tent in the backyard, but I do know that I said it couldn't be at our house outside as we don't have an enclosed backyard and it's just not safe. (We get far too many visitors wandering up our driveway to check whether our car is available for petty larceny and neither the lights nor the fairly obvious security camera deter them.)
Dave and Karen bravely volunteered their house and even offered to take Amelia! So both Matthew and Amelia have now had their first sleepover away from mom and dad in someone else's house!
The kids slept by themselves outside!
Theo and Amelia knew they didn't get to sleep in the tent with the big kids but seemed okay until they had a chance to go inside the tent with the other kids to help them set up. Then Theo had floods of tears. So Karen setup two miniature tents inside for the littles. Amelia was so happy she could hardly wait to go to bed!
