MJ and I accompanied Gabe and the girls to the campsite to help set up, eat dinner and then head home to sleep. Come on....he's only 15 months and definitely needs the crib. Plus, I need my king sized bed :)
Set up at the campsite proved to be tricky with having to make sure MJ wasn't in the fire pit, touching the BBQ or running into the road. The girls were busy riding their bikes and tripping over hard to see tree roots. It was....emotional.
Once set up was complete, we cooked the food and everyone ate. I spent that meal continuously taking MJ off the picnic table. (fun times)
Finally, I decided we should leave. I bid them farewell and complimented Gabe on his adventurous spirit. I told them I can't wait to see them all in the morning.
Flash-forward to 1:30am. I fell asleep with my lamp on, reading my Nook, when suddenly 3 smiling faces approach my bed. "Mommy, we're home." I looked at them, confused, and asked the time. "What are you guys doing here?" I asked, happy to see them. "Maddie's back itched and the ground was hard, " Gabe replied.
