Father's and son's. Bowcutt style!

Well, not really. But we didn't have a lot of options.
The father's and son's camp out was cancelled due to severe rain storms. The storms here in Texas are much more terrifying than in Utah. Maybe it's just because I'm waiting for a tornado to hit. Either way, I was ready with my bottled water and helmets just in case those warning sirens went off :) Parker was absolutely devastated he couldn't go on the camp out with his dad. So I had this bright idea to stick the tent in our living room.  Just to give him something fun to do that night. The thing I didn't think about was that the tent and the living room are about the same size! After re-arranging some furniture we were able to make it work.

So we grabbed pillows, blankets and couch cushions, popped some corn, and watched "Astro Boy". Then we proceeded to sleep in the tent. I feel like I gave it a good effort. I lasted about 10 minutes and thought, "forget this! This is father's and sons and I have a very comfortable bed 10 feet away!" Jared was a trouper and Parker had a blast :)

I love the bruised knees over holy jeans, I love it. We still miss you guys so much, but I'm so glad you guys are enjoying yourselves so much!

There are some GREAT camping sites around these areas...when the rain isn't CRAZY! Can you believe those storms...our backyard was a lake a couple of times this summer! Welcome to Texas. I am hoping we get up that way sometime to say hello...and if you are ever in need of a place to stay in Houston. Hotel Stewart is at your service!
