Oh, it’s the latter, LOL! My kids were the same way. They STILL talk about the time that we all (Mom, Dad, the three boys, the dogs...even the cats!) slept out on the deck in August to watch a meteor shower.
Of course, they whined and complained the whole time...until “The Show” started. They fell asleep soon after they counted 200 “falling stars.”
Good times. Enjoy this! :)
Our favorite August ritual!!! Maybe that’s a midwest/ Great Lakes thing...
