SFJ #4 - Stories under the stars

We are rolling along with our Summer Fun Jar activities.  On Saturday night we got blankets, pillows, and Grace's sleeping bag all set up on the deck.  And then we waited for the sun to set and the stars to come out.  And waited.
As soon as she could see the first star, Grace came to tell me that it was time!  So we got our flashlight and some bug spray and cuddled under the star to read stories.
She must have enjoyed it because it was the first thing she mentioned as soon as she woke up this morning.  "Mom, do you remember that we read stories outside last night?"  I love that we are making memories.

Sounds like fun and great memories!
Maybe we can do that on the terrace when you guys visit. Ba and Nana are thinking about fun stuff to do "different".
