What do you get when you combine firewood, marshmallows, hot dogs, a tent, an air mattress and all four of us? You get a fun night of "camping"
We had big plans to go away camping over the weekend, but then we really thought about it, about how "what if it gets to cold tonight", "what if little miss will not sleep in a tent?", etc. So we decided that maybe it would be better to do a dry run in the back yard, heck if it got that bad we could just go inside:)
We sat around the "camp" fire and cooked hot dogs, roasted marshmallows, and looked at all the stars in the sky. We even had wildlife when 2 mommas and 4 baby deer came out and hung out in the field beside our yard. It was a ton of fun and the kids loved it. We actually made it all night and only had to get up once for a potty trip that just happened to be outside the tent:) because lets face it had I walked her all the way back to the house at 3ish in the morning I was NOT walking back out to the tent to go back to sleep, my behind would have snuggled up in my nice warm and comfy bed!!
