Father and Son Campout

Leif new that his free time with the family was coming to an end this week. So he planned a little camp out with Jakob on the trampoline. We had a delicious tinfoil dinner cookout and roasted marshmallows together. Then I took Caleb up to the barn and Leif and Jakob stayed down.

They both had a great time looking at the "star pictures" as Jakob put it. They also read dinosaur books with the flashlight and played a shock game with the static electricity sparks from the trampoline.

Leif said that Jakob said this to him when they were ready to go to sleep "I have an idea, lets take my blanket and Lucy (his stuffed dog) and go up to the barn and go to sleep." :) Leif said that it was really noisy and kind of cold. He felt like he was covering Jakob all night long.

Our house is surrounded by animals. Our back neighbors have chickens, roosters, and ducks. The other back neighbors have horses. The side neighbors have 1 hound dog and 2 other dogs. And the front neighbors have 2 beagles. So there is a lot of noise, not to mention the crickets and other night sounds. Jakob wasn't too thrilled about this part of sleeping out.

But, they survived and came up in the morning a bit tired but smiling.
