Backyard campout

Justin turned 32 yesterday! We celebrated with friends... we had a backyard camp out! Yes we did, practically a TWO DAY party. I was purely exhausted by the end, my muscles were twitching, my head was spinning,  I couldn't see straight, but it was so worth it.

I couldn't think of a better "theme" for a Justin Birthday than camping. We had a BBQ and campfire Saturday night, some friends spent the night in tents in the backyard, and the next morning we had brunch with even more friends. It was wonderful.

The new Seifert dog, Arrow. (In case you're wondering about the hairy legs and what appears to be a skirt... I wondered the same thing, who-the-heck-is-that? Turns out it's Cam wearing a robe while BBQing some breakfast)

Scoutie. When asked what his favorite vegetable was he replied "corn" and his brother Finn (age 5) added in  "Corn isn't my favorite because most corn is genetically modified..."  Speaking of that, Finn was featured on OHDEEDOH this weekend! He is one amazing kid.
