Backyard Camping

A few weeks ago Aaron decided to camp with the kids in the backyard. We took the boys camping once when Sawyer was 1, Gunnar 3, so they don’t really remember it. In fact I think it was right around the time Greta was conceived. No, not ON the camping trip. Gross.

Anyways we are going camping with a few families in September and decided to do a trial run. Well, Aaron decided to do a trial run. I opted for my bed. And I half expected Greta to bail out, but no. At 9pm I went to say goodnight and asked Greta if she’d like to come to bed. I got a big fat appalled NO. The thought that she would leave the fun. They had a few extension cords running from the garage. I believe for the DVD player and for the sound machine. They stayed in that tent til at least 7pm. No air mattresses, just sleeping bags on the hard ground.

But of course the kids had a blast and cannot wait to do it again. My kids have a very good daddy.

Even Foxy had his very own tent within the tent.

Not quite sure what we’re going to do without a microwave to make microwave popcorn when we do the real deal.

  1. Ok, having extension cords and dvd players is not technically, realllllly camping. You should get a hibachi and had Aaron do smore’s and sing camp songs for entertainment. True camping style 🙂 Love to all, Tracie
