Well, sort of. Each Wednesday the girls & I head to the Salt Lake City Public Library in downtown SLC. It is a beautiful structure both inside & out. And they also have an amazing children's literature floor & the best story time that I've ever attended. Each week has a theme complete with songs, movement activities, puppets &, of course, a number of books that tie into the theme.
The other week the theme was camping. Camping is something that Michael & I used to do P.C. (pre-children) but haven't since I was pregnant. I guess we're just chicken but the idea of our children soundly sleeping in a tent seems slightly laughable to me.
We have tossed around the idea of trying it this summer. First we're going to do a trial run of back yard camping. (Or maybe I'll send Michael out back with both girls, stay inside & get a complete night's sleep...) In any case, Cassidy got to practice the most important part of camping the other week: roasting marshmallows. The ingenious librarians made an indoor camp fire & each of the kids got to "roast" a marshmallow over it. She was beyond thrilled. Can't wait to try it for real!
