We're Going Camping! (Photostory)
The Taylors recently arrived at Rod's cabin. They are trying to get everything situated.
"Honey, why did you bring so much stuff?" (Rod)
"I wanted to make sure we had enough for the kids to eat. You know how they like to snack." (Danielle)
"They are going to be so busy they won't have time for all this snacking." (Rod)
"I just like to be prepared." (Danielle)
Rod has already put up the tent for the girls.
He also put up the soccer net for the boys and gave them both balls to play with.
"Watch me and do what I do." (Julian)
As Julian gets ready to take his shot, Jacob falls on his ball.
Jacob looks at the ball in the net.
The girls are chllin' in the tent. Nicole and Jessica are on one side.
Nikaya is on the other side.
"Mommy I've scored 5 goals." (Julian)
"That's great. Where's Jacob? You're supposed to be keeping him with you at all times." (Danielle)
"I know, but I wanted to tell you about my goals and he wouldn't come." (Julian)
Danielle decides to go move the goal closer to her.
"Right there is fine. Now I can see you guys better." (Danielle)
"Come on Jacob. Come on this side and play." (Danielle)
"You ladies are awfully quiet in there. You guys alright?" (Rod)
"We're good." (The ladies almost in unison)
"Daddy, we're thirsty." (Nicole)
"There's plenty to drink out here, but you guys have to come out and get it." (Rod)
The girls don't waste any time getting to the table.
"Your dad is going to be grilling some hotdogs soon, so why don't you guys just grab a drink and a small bag of chips." (Danielle)
"Can we have cookies, too?" (Nicole)
"You have to choose between cookies or chips. We're going to be here until tomorrow, so we can't eat all the food at once." (Danielle)
"Watch me, Daddy. I'm going to get it straight in. Move Jacob!" (Julian)
"Don't yell at your brother. Let him take a turn first, then you go." (Rod)
The girls take their drink and their chips back to the tent. At this rate, they may stay in this tent the whole trip.
Danielle gets all the groceries put away and then she makes a pot of tea. The boys are tuckered out from all the soccer.
"Do you remember the first time you came up here?" (Rod)
"How can I forget? That trip helped to shape our relationship." (Danielle)
"I just remember you not wanting to kiss me." (Rod)
"Can I come in?" (Julian)
"No boys allowed. Just kidding. Come in." (Jessica)
"Come with me." (Rod)
"Where are we going?" (Danielle)
"You can trust me now. We're married." (Rod)
"Can you believe it was almost a year ago that we laid on this same bed, discussing our wedding?" (Rod)
"Time sure flies." (Danielle)
"Now that we are coming up on our one year anniversary, and we are settling in to this family thing, what are your thoughts about expanding our family?" (Rod)
Julian and the girls are having a good time inside their cocoon.
This is the setup on my front lawn.
1) Okay, Rod just threw me a curve ball. That last conversation wasn't planned at all. You guys know how tired I am of having a pregnant woman in Morristown. Maybe he meant adoption.
