Backyard Camping

Jared and Reefy were supposed to go on a camping trip with our ward this past weekend.. Unfortunately, we were unprepared and so Jared thought it would be a great idea to have a backyard campout. We went to walmart and bought a tent, some wood and your usual camp fire food. Reef was so excited to "go camping." The two of them set up the tent and built a little fire in our homemade fire ring. I got all the food ready and we had a nice enjoyable evening under the stars. Reef roasted a hot dog for the first time and thoroughly enjoyed his s'more. By the time we were done eating is pretty late so I said good night to my little campers and went inside. Reef wasn't too sure about sleeping outside, but he went with his Daddy anyway. At about 1:30 in the morning I heard the sliding glass door open and there was Mr. Reefy asking if he could come lay down with me. I told him that was fine, but to make sure the tent was closed. He said with absolutely certainty that he already closed the tent. WELL... At about 3:30 in the morning I hear the sliding glass door open again and look up to see a very frantic husband wondering where Reef was. Apparently, Mr. Reefy didn't close the tent.. In fact, he left the tent wide open, which led to Jared thinking Reef got kidnapped.. Reef must be like his momma.. He enjoys the nice air conditioned house and a comfy couch to sleep on. It was a fun night none the less and we had a good time "Camping."
