This weekend (Saturday) is the Great American Backyard Campout! Sounds like fun to me! We are "camping out" with the neighbors tomorrow night. I think we are going to grill some burgers and dogs and have smores too! We will put the tents up in the backyard but I am not sure if they will actually be slept in. If we don't sleep in the tents, we will "campout" in the living room!! I am challenging everyone here to " campout" in some way or another ( tents outside in the yard, inside "camping" ect.....) and then we can all post pics of our night!! Anyone game??

That does sound fun. But I finally got my kids to put up their shark tent not to long ago...I can't bring it back out.

I am looking forward to your pics!

We have a busy weekend, so no fun for us. Work, work, and more work.

Sounds like fun though, and I can't wait to see your pics either!!

The kids camped with their daddy in our "backyard" a few weeks ago. They were just barely within sight of the house, lol!

No thanks, though. Too many wild critters including large-ish predators and tiny parasites out there for my taste.

I think we will be joining you. It will be great practise, since we are camping in the mountains in a few weeks. What great fun!!
Thanks for the reminder though. I had totally forgotten about this!

I'm simply maintaining my theory that if God intended me to sleep on the ground He would not have given me so many joints to stiffen up!

Besides, all the creepy things come out at night. I'll stick to enjoying the great outdoors during waking hours!

We cheated too. We played outside all day long but had to come inside to sleep. I was too exhausted to spend the night on the ground. And the 'Skeeters were too bad. LOL
