Backyard Camp Out

Mackenzie and Madalyn decided they wanted to have a family camp out today. They made invitations for everyone and an agenda. The agenda was planned out very precisely- down to the half hour! Here is how the day went:
We started with a "nature" bicycle ride to Pavillions to buy chocolate for smores: Then they set up the tent (the kids did this all by themselves):
Then it was time to visit the lake...

where they did lots of jumps and games in the "lake"!
Next was craft time:

The kids all wore bandanas, but Meredith had to add her own flair with the glasses! She was cracking us up!
After Dad got home we had hot dogs and then were divided into two teams for skits. Mom, Mackenzie and Trevor were on a team and Dad, Madalyn and Meredith were on the other team. The talent was absolutely amazine- lol!
What campout would be complete without smores?? Yum Yum!

Roasting the marshmallows:

Despite the occational time outs and yelling matches between the kids the day was a lot of fun! The kiddos are all snuggled in the tent sleeping soundly as I type this up.
The agenda for the morning:
Eggs, bacon and apple juice!
