What do you do...

when it's freezing outside and you've got five kids to entertain for an entire day! Why you make a "tent park" of course!

Emma was off today so the dynamic in our home was a little different. It's amazing how one extra personality can add so much drama.
So the kids basically spent the day destroying the house. I had this grand idea that if I got out every tent we own and made a "tent park" that they would be entertained for awhile. It worked but it soon became tents, forts out of couch cushions, and all sorts of other structures using everything from the aquadoodle mats to blankets. I love pop up tents and tunnels because they don't take up that much room to store and it's the kind of thing you can put away for months at a time and then it's all new and exciting when you set them up again.

Oh the joy of destruction.

There were other tents out too, but not in this picture. It was a busy day of imagining around here! Wonder what we're going to do tomorrow? I really don't have any good ideas!

You know what else is fun....putting up a full size tent in your living room and camping indoors. We did that lots when the kids were little. They'd play in it all day and then we'd let them sleep in it.

Messy rooms are for a short time...memories are forever!
