Wes asked for a backyard campout for his birthday party this year and we were so excited to pull this night together for him. We had hotdogs, s'mores cupcakes, a homemade campfire cake and Abby's famous hand pies. We pitched a tent in the back yard and had a piñata for the kids and of course those who were game were welcome to join us for our annual water balloon fight. After it got dark those of us who were camping out sat around the fire making s'mores then gathered in the tent for a couple kid-friendly "scary" stories and snuggled into our sleeping bags for the night. The next morning we awoke a little sore, a lot tired and ready for some coffee and a big pancake breakfast. It was one of the best birthday parties we've had and camping out in the yard for the first time with all the kids was so much fun. Thanks to all who joined us and helped with the party, we made so many great memories because of all of you.
