Backyard Campout

Boogs has been asking for a backyard campout for a couple of months. I finally agreed to it this past weekend. The weather was perfect! GM, Boogs would rather go camping with you and GP but he made do with our backyard for now. The first two pictures are flashbacks to our backyard campouts from 2010.

He ended up not sleeping outside that night.

Setting up the tent.

Yep, the zipper works just fine.

Pretending to be asleep in the tent.

Gathering firewood for our "campfire".

Snuggled up on the back porch by the fire.

Boogs did not go to sleep until almost 11 p.m. He really enjoyed looking at the stars.

Bonus for me, Boogs slept in until 7:20. That is extremely late for him.
We spent two nights in the tent before we took it down. On Monday, he asked if he could sleep on the floor of his room in his sleeping bag. We need to plan a real camping trip before it gets too hot.


  1. Oh My! Boogs is so cute :) My kids would love a back yard campout... I need to find a tent!

    1. Thanks, Julie. We got our tent as a wedding gift almost 9 years ago.
