Last night, Mari and I were sitting outside chatting after dinner. We were talking about how we hope we remember to play and have fun with our kids. We want to make sure we have a ton of family memories of going skateboarding with dad or water balloon fights with mom or playing bocce in the backyard together. We have to remember to stay young at heart. I told Mari this shouldn't be a problem for me since I still act like a 16-year old and still haven't grown up. :)
The weather was gorgeous outside, the stars were out, the temperature was in the 70's and I said to Mari, like I have over a dozen times before with typically zero positive response, "We should sleep outside tonight!" And wouldn't you know, she agreed! Off we were to an impromptu camping trip. Well, actually, we just set up our tent in the backyard and plugged in the baby monitor. And since we're not true "campers" we tried to squeeze our queen mattress inside of the tent but it wouldn't fit so we just put the tent on top of the mattress. We enjoyed a beautiful Texas night lit by a full moon sleeping under the stars. We created a lasting memory for ourselves and hope to do this with the kiddos one day.
