    She's Gettin' The Hang Of It...

    So I'm in the kitchen fixing supper this evening when our youngest daughter, Jenna, comes in with her DN and straps and says "Daddy, can you help me set my hammock up?" Now ordinarily this would be a no brainer but I'm elbow deep in battering chicken to fry. I told her that I couldn't right at the moment but would when I got through. Then she asks where she should hang, in the woods at the edge of our backyard or from a couple of trees between our house and our neighbors. To that I responded "Either would be fine." As I was putting supper on the table I glanced out in the back yard only to see this...



    It would appear she's gettin' the hang of it...

    You have trained the young Padiwan well....

    All she needs is a tarp and she can spend the night to really test it out

    She has a tarp, a CCF pad (haven't made her a UQ yet) and a decent sleeping bag. I thought about both of us camping out but the idea hit me a little too late...of course tomorrow night is supposed to be nice too...hmmmmm

    Proud dad, of course. Good job.
