We saw so many beautiful Cardinals right by our tent. Every time Brynn saw one, she would shoosh everyone so we could hear it sing.
Bryce holding on to his Percy flashlight in the dark tent. A. dorable.
Here we are roasting marshmallows. My faaaaavorite thing in the world. In this picture, it looks like we brought our whole house with us. Maybe we did over pack a little, but one problem in the past has been Bryce getting bored and whiny, so we brought what we thought would be good camping toys instead of relying totally on rocks and dirt. We were glad we brought the dump truck!

and the other animals. Here's Brynn with the "cuuuuuuute baby goat!!!!"
We didn't get around to picking peaches this time. Next time, though. I'm craving a peach smoothie.
Then this afternoon it wasn't super hot, but we were really bored. That's why, when I was trying to wait until as LATE as I could in the season, I gave in and we ran through the sprinklers. I made it until March 11th. Lame. Now that they remember playing in the water is an option: Hellooooo 3 a day baths, 3 a week bathtub scrubs, mud and grass all over the kitchen floor, muddy clothes all over the back porch, etc. For the UT friends and fam, it's akin to the mess that's left every day from kids playing out in the snow. Not that it's like you don't run through the sprinklers, maybe just not for 6 months strait. I grow weary of it quickly. What is WRONG with me today, Grumpy?
Swinging in the sprinklers
Hm. Guess he doesn't quite fit into the 2T swim trunks.
Princess Brynn forgot her lessons in poise, screamed "CINDERELLA!!" at the top of her lungs, and clamored up on stage before her royal parents could even ask if it was ok (amidst a few good laughs from the ballerinas and participants).
And Cinderella did the same.
While waiting for the show to start, Princess Brynn played "Duck, Duck, Goose" with her new BFFs.
Then it was show-time.
Brynn got some King-Princess bonding time...
and even the little Prince was enjoying himself.
Then it was time to wrap up with a few questions from the audience (like, "Are you a real ballerina?")...
and a few last hugs.
Thanks to the ballet company and to Marty's students for tipping us off, it was an afternoon to remember!!!
