The Big Camping Adventure May 24, 2013Posted by Pam in KC in Uncategorized.
My young friend is spending the weekend with us. She’s been begging us since mid-February to go camping in the backyard. I have NO idea what put that idea into her head. We are not big campers. Admittedly, I do have camping gear, but it hasn’t been used since May 2003.
The weather is nice, it’s a long weekend, and why not. This was so spur of the moment. So, we hauled the basics up from the basement — tent, tarp, air mattress, sleeping bag, bug light and I’m not sure what else.
Between the two of us we got the tent setup in a relatively flat spot in the backyard. I worked up a sweat.
She pumped up the air mattress with the foot pedal, unrolled the sleeping bag and brought out her thin blanket. I had her go back in the house and bring out the Dresden plate quilt for additional warmth.
Yes, that’s a DVD player and electrical cord you see there. She doesn’t want to get bored. 🙂
Finally, we had her put on her fleece pajama bottoms. She kicked me out and zipped up the door.
We’ll see if she stays out all night. At least she says I don’t have to spend the night out there. — This is good. There’s only one sleeping bag.
