Camping in the backyard
August 19, 2006
Tonight Rob and the boys are camping out in the backyard. He built a huge fire in our koi pond turned fire pit and roasted hot dogs for dinner with them. Yes, our house a had a man made coy pond in the back yard that we promptly drained and now use it to have bonfires. Because honestly, aren’t bonfires much more fun than watching little fish swim around?
And then we all roasted marshmallows and made smores.
And then I retreated back into my bug free and comfortable house. Why sleep on the cold hard ground reeking of smoke when there is a comfortable bed and shower mere steps away?
And so my tenure as the fun parent has come to a screeching close. As it should be.
I should just embrace the fact that my lot in life is to make sure that all the rules are followed and that no one has too much fun.
And if it means I get to sleep in my climate controlled house without the risk of bugs crawling on me or racoons opening up my tent, I am fine with it.
