Sleeping Out

Eric has been wanting to make some meaningful memories with Eva lately, talking about intentionally "dating" his daughters. He spends lots of one on one time with them, but I guess tagging along on a trip to Home Depot and getting a special granola bar doesn't cut it anymore. Back in July, I read this, and suggested that Eric give it a whirl with Eva. She has been really, really excited about tenting out with Daddy (just Daddy!). Hope and I got to tag along for the roasting hot dogs and s'mores, but then Eric and Eva retired to the little tent in the back yard. Eva was giddy with excitement, even though she came in to the house at least twice to check in about inconsequential things. She was thrilled to play "Hi-Ho Cherry-O" in the tent, and when I asked what they talked about she said, "going to bed... and ballet."

When I went out to get them at 9 am this morning, they were well rested and Eva was still giddy with the fun of one-on-one Daddy time.
