Gone Campin'

Aven and I decided to have a bonfire and roast marshmallows in the living room instead of heading out on the town and I am so glad we did. He has such a vivid imagination.  We set up a campsite complete with a fire pit, tent and lake. AJ gathered firewood (books) to build a great, big, bright fire.  It was spectacular!  I am so thankful for his imagination even though sometimes that means that he paints with his magic markers on the couch or practices making mac n cheese on the kitchen floor.  I am a bit embarrassed to admit that those are true stories and I was actually the adult in charge of him at those particular times.  I remember not being so amused by his imagination at the time.  However, I am still thankful that he is a healthy, imaginative smart little guy.  His creativity is still welcomed even if it means more messes that must be cleaned up later.  I have to get back to the campsite, Aven is about to start another fire.  We are roasting hotdogs this time.  .
