Driveway Campout

This evening my family was celebrating the last days of summer with one of our friends. We had a wonderful cookout in the backyard. Our visit lasted long after the sun went down. The kids thought that was great. They set up camp in the driveway with some blankets, a lantern, and some popsicles.

They found the Big Dipper, and the North Star. They made wishes on every star they saw. They had a simply marvelous time out there in the dark.

"Mommy can we stay out here all night?"

"Sorry kids, it's way past your bedtime - time to come in!"


We'll have to do that again next Labor Day weekend.
