Camping Out - what else do you do the first night in a new house?

As we'd promised the children, we camped out in the new house the night of closing.

And, what else do you do in an empty house? Bring along the laptop and a movie to watch before bed!
Miss Baby was already asleep in her pack 'n play when this picture was taken - camping out is one of the children's favorite activities...we'll see how they like real camping when we finally get around to planning a trip to do so!


And, just so you know....camping out...on the floor...is for young children...not grown adults....and, well, even with a brand new air mattress it isn't that comfortable - I think we got a dud, it was deflating throughout the night - oh, my poor back/neck/shoulders....well, you get the picture. Needless to say, we slept in the old house last night and it was sooo good to be back in my own bed! No more sleeping at the new house until the beds are moved over!

I think that's really great that you let the kids do that. Yea for the new house! When are you going to officially move in?

We're planning the "official" move for Saturday, May 8th since there's an annual meeting in the area this weekend :)

That sounds like a really fun experience, though! I'll bet the kids will remember it for a long time.

You are getting so close to being in your new home. Hurrah for you. And, what a great Mother's Day gift!!
