With summer in full swing, temperatures rising on a daily basis and lazy no-school, play-filled fun filling our days, thoughts of camping have been on our minds. We’ve been busy doing a lot of stuff around the house lately so our weekends have been pretty busy, too busy for a camping trip. Friday afternoon we were hanging out in the backyard. Lorne was home early from work to spend a little extra time with his girls in advance of a 2 week long business trip. Lorne and Maya got talking about camping and the next thing I knew plans were being made for a grand Backyard Campout. Maya was super excited!

After dinner the prep work began. The tent was set up, beds were made and Maya even made a little “fire” complete with camp chairs for her and her Dad :)

I was a bit skeptical as to whether Maya would be able to fall asleep and stay asleep outside as she scares easily, but she did awesome. Lorne and I sat in the backyard while she fell asleep. It took her longer than it does in her own bed, it was still light out so I wasn’t surprised by that. But, once she finally passed out she was out for the night. It was a hot night so I don’t think either of them had a great sleep and Lorne’s wake up call came bright and early once the sun was up, but all in all they had a good time.

I foresee a few more backyard camps this summer.

    That looks like so much fun. If I wasn’t so bug phobic I’d totally do it.

    Dr. Davis:I was introduced to Wheatbelly by some frdenis. I have lost 25 lbs since the first of the year! Not only the results on the scale but my whole body is changing shape to a better shape then I have ever been. I no longer have swollen ankles, no more heartburn, no more feeling bloated and my skin is not dry . I don’t have any cravings and feel satisfied after eating and don’t really get hungry like before. I even have frdenis telling me that not only can they tell I have lost weight, but also that I just look like I feel better, that my eyes are brighter looking, etc. And best best of all . my ulceritive colitis that I have had for 30 years is gone!! I used to take up to 8 sulfa pills daily and no I don’t take them at all!! I do have before and after pictures that I can scan and send . Also my husband has also lost 25lbs since January 1st.,he was stuck before, he just went for bloodwork for his cardiologist (he had a heart attack in 2006) and we are awaiting good results I know they will be. He feels so much better over all also. Thank you so much we are so happy that finally we have found something that works and we will never go back to our old lifestyle this is it forever!!!
