Camping with a baby

With Seth's birth, we didn't get to do any camping this summer. So after 12 nights in the woods last year, we were pretty s'more starved. We did our best to remedy the situation on Friday night. You can actually do some pretty good camping right at home.

Tinfoil dinners are easy in the oven and actually cook a little better, though nothing tastes better than slightly scorched potatoes under a pine tree. Afterward, you can roast mini-s'mores over a candle.

Finally, we set up a tent on the floor of the boys room. For some reason it was 10 degrees hotter in the tent than in the surrounding room. The boys kicked (sometimes accidentally) each other all night, and eventually made the transfer back to the bed about 4:15 am. At least no one used the "bushes" for a bathroom break.

Oh, and they cried when we put the tent away the next day . . .


  1. I think I could handle this kind of camping! :)

  2. Sounds like fun! We do camping at home at least once a summer, but it is usually in the backyard. Nate sets up the big tent and blows up the air mattresses and we cook outside. Carl usually cops out and sleeps inside, but the kids love it.
