|Everyone was excited for Fathers and Sons!|
So the alternate plan was to sleep in the van. Before we went, we removed all the rear seats and tested it out. Two crib mattresses made a nice bed for Mark and Dax, and Dad and Seth laid out the two cot mattress on top of each other and slept behind the front seats. It was a little cramped, but it worked okay for one night. The biggest problem was that the rear seats, bags, and other luggage had to be stored in the driver seats or on top of the van!
|The boys thought sleeping in the back of the van was amazing!|
|There were a lot of people there! A lot!|
|The dust...oh, the dust!|
At about 9 o'clock it got dark enough for the traditional movie. They set up a projector and aimed it at the mostly white side of a large trailer. We watched a short film on the restoration of the Priesthood and then the movie Kung Fu Panda. All three boys made it to the end, which came at nearly 11pm.
|The boys are always excited if they get to stay up late.|
|Seth was freezing while he watched the movie, but he would not miss the end.|
|All ready for bed!|
A note from Mom: I wasn't really sure what to do with myself with a whole evening all to myself. Luckily, it didn't take me too long to realize all of the possibilities. First of all, I went to Kneaders where none of the boys ever want to go. I picked up a sandwich, some soup, and a mint chocolate cupcake. I talked to my mom uninterrupted for 30 minutes. Then, I really just worked on the blog and other things while I watched Once I Was a Beehive. I read my book, and went to bed. It was a very peaceful, relaxing evening!
|Night out on the town!|
