    We are going to come and set up a tent and enjoy the festivities for the day. We live right around the corner and after it gets dark, we are going to leave after a little campfire fun. The grandparents take the kids on Saturday nights so I can get a little break. I will come back in the morning to take my tent down.

      I do not know when we will be getting there since my little one still naps. We will just be coming to hang out with the group for awhile. I have to work Sat night and Sun morning.
