Backyard Camping

We really wanted to take the boys camping more this summer, but with a new baby we knew that it wasn't going to happen.  Andrew and I have been talking for a while about setting up the tent in the back yard and Andrew, Keagan and Deker sleeping in it. 

Last Sunday, we finally did it.  After dinner, we told the boys of our plan and they were very excited, to say the least.  They had so much fun helping Daddy set it up. 

After the tent was set up the air mattresses and sleeping bags went in.  Can you see how excited they were?

When it was bed time, we read books in the tent, then Andrew and I said goodnight. 

They didn't end up falling asleep until after 10:00 that night and woke up at 6:00 the next morning, but it was a lot of fun and they can't wait until we can do it again.

I would say that is the best kind of camping. No hauling stuff anywhere AND you have your own kitchen and shower!!!

I'm proud of you for not giving up and going inside! We always do.

I used to (and still do) love camping at home. It always feels like an adventure. I think the next stop needs to be Lone Pine Farm in Haines, Oregon!
