We wanted to go camping two weekends ago but also wanted to hang out with our roomie Daniel - so we did the best of both worlds and camped in our backyard! We had a blast roasting hot dogs and s'mores, playing card games, and sleeping in the tent. The best part was that we kept Macy inside and had the monitor outside with us. She got a normal nights sleep and we enjoyed the tent!
We picked up the tent from Grandpa and Mema this summer. They had it in their basement but weren't using it. Just so happened that a new family camping tent was our next adventure purchase! What a blessing it is to have this. It is brand new and worked great for our growing family! Good bye to Justin's grade school Bass Pro Shop tent. You served us well for the past six years little blue tent, but we had worn you out and out grown you. Best of luck with your new owner (whoever buys you at the Thrifty Shop)!
Check out this awesome kid sleeping bag that Daniel has for his girls. No room for cold spots - it was perfect for Mack :)
We also got to use our little firepit from Joannie and Earl. Since we have re-done our yard, it has been used at least on a monthly basis. It provides us with a nice atmosphere in the yard. We just have to remember to not let the grass burn out underneath it...oops.
