some INDOOR camping FUN

With only a few more days until our move and our half marathon, we've been finding ways around the house to stay busy!  Of course we've been packing A LOT.  We've lived here for over four years, so you can imagine how much stuff we've managed to accumulate!  Too much! But after this move, we don't plan on moving for a LONG, LONG time...it's our "home": the one where we will raise the boys, have family over, host Thanksgiving, Christmas and much more! Plus, we'll be getting our dog back!  Ha, she's lived with my mother for four years, while we lived here and we're ready to have her back!  She'll have a huge yard, and lots of space indoors to roam around!  She's a yellow lab and her name is Dixie, so we'll have many memories to make with her too!  The boys are MOST excited about her coming home!

So in keeping busy, my husband taught Jake how to ride his bike WITHOUT training wheels! I was screaming and whistling in the road, once he got the hang of it!  Can you tell I'm one, proud Momma?!  Ha!

and we've been playing in THIS...

We've had an indoor camping trip before, but it was really fun this time because our house is pretty much EMPTY!  Nothing to get in the way of this big 'ol tent!  The boys actually fell asleep in here, but it did take them until after 10pm, but it was still fun!  We had the Coleman lantern, we told stories, read books and played Angry Birds on Jake's iTouch!  So fun!  I guess in the future, we'll actually have to camp OUTSIDE, but for now, our indoor camping trips will have to do!
