Living Room Campout
June 2008

We wanted to take Rachel camping but the thought of camping with Sarah was a bit frightening. The weather had been so dry that many campgrounds were closed and none allowed any fires. What fun is camping without a fire? So we decided to campout in the living room. We cooked dinner on the BBQ grill and roasted marshmallows over the coals to make S'mores. Then we set up the tent in the living room and played games by the light of a battery powered lantern. I have to admit, sleeping in sleeping bags on the floor wasn't much softer than sleeping on the ground outside. Rachel loved it! Now every time we grill hamburgers, she asks if we can make S'mores and camp in the living room.
