The kids wanted to go camping. Camping, right now, to us means in the backyard. We were waiting for a day where Hubby didn't work at night, and didn't have to go to work the next day. Thursday night, the cosmos aligned and, after Thumbelina tried to drown herself at Et's Karate pool party, hubby took ET and Thumbelina "camping" on the trampoline.

They all slept until about 8:30 the next morning, which is nothing short of miraculous since they usually wake up around 6.
Hubby got a few bug bites, Thumbelina about 6, and ET no less than 25. Bad Parenting 101--who needs bug spray when they are sleeping outside?!

I would say bloodfest! I hate mosquitoes! I remember getting bit on the eyelid and it swelling up like Rocky Balboa! It's not bad mommy, just great memories for your kids!
