The Golden Day

Here in Minnesota, it was a gem of a day,
so right after school, I kicked them out to play.

The boys were surprised to see me tag along,
but I had a mission I'd been planning all day long.

I sent them to gather the tallest sticks they could find.

Then we tied them at the top,

 with a little ball of twine.

With a stretch and a flap,

and some tying here & there,

The boys watched their tee-pee rise high into the air.

Well thankfully for you, my little poem is done,
but for those little boys their adventures had only begun.

I wish you could have heard their giggles & their conversations.  
They were so busy building, exploring & protecting.  

And when the "men" went off to build a bridge across the creek, Mama & her babies held down the fort.

And just when I thought they couldn't get any cuter...
...I raised my camera to take a picture from further away and 
caught the sweetest moment:

So many moments today my heart just burst with love.

I dreaded the sun setting on this golden day,

but then the flashlights went on 
& the giggles spilled into the night.

And when I stuffed them into bed 
I wanted to put it all here so I never forget.
