discussed it with mike... & we're gonna build this for the boys' Christmas present (maybe not as girlie)! :) also, in the next month we're going to plan a family "sleep over" in our living room! we'll bake cookies, make some popcorn on the stove, have a dance party, sit around our fireplace & talk & laugh & be silly, watch a movie & then we'll all fall asleep on the floor together. hopefully the boys won't think it's going to be a normal thing. ha. ;)

what new adventures would you like to have with your family?

I hope your teepee building goes well. I would love to figure out how to do that for my boys too. Your kids are such amazing little guys and it is great that you got to have a mini camping adventure with them. I love roasting popcorn the realllly old way like that. Have a great time.

Family adventures. . .hmm I don't know if my adventures are so much of adventures with them or not, but I just like being with my sons and my husband in general. I don't understand a few parents who do whatever they can to constantly get away from their kids or make it seem like the children are burdens. :(
