It's Gr8 to be Eight!

There are 3 boys in Travis' 2nd grade class that turned 8 in the same week. So we combined forces and threw a Star Wars themed backyard campout. The evening started with games, pizza, cake and ice cream followed by presents! As soon as it got dark, we projected a Star Wars movie onto an outdoor screen. It was unseasonable chilly--around 50 degrees. But hey, when you're 8 it's just not a big deal. The dads eventually got everyone settled into tents and zipped in for the night. The morning came really early but we had a fire to warm up by and donuts!
