My husband, remember I told you how wonderful he was. Well, more proof. He told the boys that they'd have a sleepover/campoout this summer. Here it is. Each boy had 1 friend over. I don't think I could handle too many more boys. In all actuallity, they were all very well behaved. A little wild but hey, they are boys. I bought lots of food, well not really lots, but more than I would have normal, we still have some. I wanted them to have lots to choose from. Rob grilled food for them. They didn't eat much overall. I think the heat (pushing 100*) had a lot to do with that. It was definately there for them. We let them drink pop, caffiene free of course. They jumped on the trampolne, ran around, got sweaty,played video games, watched a movie, had a "campfire" in the backyard, roasted marshmallows, ate smores, and slept in the tents. It was alot of fun. We had one little frustration. When it was bed time, like around midnight, because it says light so stinking late now. Okay, sorry. Well, we've camped alot this summer, we all--that is all 5 of us--have our own flashlights. Would you believe we couln't find one forever, then we found one and the batteries were dead. Of couse it was much too late to go buy batteries. UGH!!!! Overall it was a great time. I think all the boys had a good time.

Let me share will all, little boys and fire just aren't the calmest place to be around. They can't just sit and enjoy the fire, they must play in it.

caffeine free? what's the sport in that? awe, come on Mom!

That looks like a really good "boy" time (a species I know nothing about). I especially like the little boy front and center who is trying to impale himself with the marshmallow still on the stick.

Now, this message is a downer from a paranoid, so erase it after you read it, o.k.?

In case you haven't already, warn your little guys about a dangerous game the kids play these days where they stuff as many marshmallows in their mouths as possible. Older teens even have choked to death playing this game. I don't know what it's called...something to do with "bunny" I think.

O.k....it was just one 12 year old girl. Still...a silly way to die:
