All of these girls in this picture slept over Saturday night, but only four of them slept in our backyard in a tent all night long.
I appreciate the times that Gabi (and her friends) come up with creative plans.
(They paint, make videos, cook, bike, run, etc.)
Last night they decided to go camping right in our backyard.
When they asked to sleep outside, I tried to discourage them because it was a somewhat wet day.
Plus, the real crux of the matter is that we live right in the city and must sleep with our doors locked.
So I was hesitant about letting them sleep outside. (I am from Manila, need I say more?)
I seemed to be the only parent that was worried because when Gabi invited more kids to sleep in a tent with them, a couple more came over to spend the night. They survived the night despite the rain storm.
Then we decided to breathalyze ourselves to check our "reading."
It was a comical evening. Like a sit-com, really.
As the evening went on, anyone that set foot on the porch got breathalyzed too.
All of these girls in this picture slept over Saturday night, but only one of them is now under house arrest.
