Stella's Backyard Camping Adventure

Daddy always has big plans for our family, and one of his bright ideas over the Christmas break was to take Stella "camping" in the backyard...
She "helped" him pitch the tent.  An hour later they were both exhausted.  Okay, maybe one of them still had a little bit of spark left in her..
She loved the zipper doors...
But naptime in the tent?  Better in theory than in practice...
At bedtime they did make a second attempt at sleeping in the tent. Cille and I got a free pass due to her being an infant. It was a pretty chilly night for South Louisiana, so around 2 a.m. Damon called me from the tent to come rescue them. Seems he had given all his covers to Stella as the temperature plummeted. This resulted in a warm, toasty Stella sleeping like a log spread eagle under a mountain of blankets, and a frostbitten Daddy curled into the fetal position and clutching his shorts and t-shirt tightly around his frozen body in a futile attempt to stay warm. Let's hope our next camping adventure is a little more successful...
