Camping out...living room style

Lou has been telling me for ages that he's going to camp out in the living room with Squish. He's never actually done it, though. On Saturday I was blowing up this really great kid sized air mattress to make sure that it really is really great (totally!) It was just the inspiration Lou needed. I went to dinner with a couple of my heroes Saturday night so Lou did things as we normally do but Sunday night it was boys in the wild, wild living room. We set up this MASSIVE tent. It took up the entire living room and spilled over into the dining room. We blew up Squishs air mattress and a queen sized one for Lou, threw in a million stuffed animals, water and snacks. Squish was beside himself. He didn't go to sleep until 10:30. They watched movies and played until they fell asleep. It was cute to sneak through and check on them (girls were not allowed at the camp out) They watched Peter Pan, which Lou had never seen and I heard him laughing out lout at several points. Bear had a rougher night than usual, which I had to deal with by myself, but it was a price worth paying for all the fun my two biggest boys had.
