Camp Out

Last night the kiddo's (Ky, Sienna and Denver) decided to try camping in the backyard. They set up a bed on the trampoline, I sprayed them with bug spray and they snuggled down. I was pretty sure they wouldn't last out there, being their first time, but this morning everyone was still there. I should say that I was on the couch in full view of them all night, as well as the fact the backyard is locked and guarded by Gilby, thus, they were completely safe. They can't wait to do it again :)

The Word Party

Loving words clutch crimson roses,
Rude words sniff and pick their noses,
Sly words come dressed as foxes,
Short words stand on cardboard boxes,
Common words tell jokes and gabble,
Complicated words play Scrabble,
Swear words stamp around and shout,
Hard words stare eachother out,
Foreign words look lost and shrug,
Careless words trip on the rug,
Long words slouch with stooping shoulders,
Code words carry secret folders,
Silly words flick rubber bands,
Hyphenated words hold hands,
Strong words show off, bending metal,
Sweet words call each other 'petal',
Small words yawn and suck their thumbs,
Till at last the morning comes,
Kind words give out farewell posies....
Snap! The dictionary closes.
