Backyard Camping

Last weekend, the team decided to pitch a tent in the backyard, fire up the hibachi grill, and toast marshmallows for S’mores. The result? A fun evening for all of us (despite a mattress that lost a little air through the night).

Making (and eating) S’mores is a favorite activity for CP#1.

The kids played in the backyard until the sun went down, and they actually raced to get in their pajamas for tent time. MP and DP liked that we didn’t have to pack up the car for the experience—everything we needed was right at our fingertips.

The success of the evening inspired DP to build a simple, brick fire pit in the backyard. Looks like there will be more camping nights in our future!
