Great American Backyard Campout

Saturday, June 21, 2008

I recently saw this posted on an online forum. The fourth annual Great American Backyard Campout is coming up soon. I don't think I've ever heard of this (where was I for the first three???) and was wondering if anyone has done this or plans to this month? Sounds like fun and I'm sure my 6 and 3 year olds would LOVE it. We've never taken them camping. In fact, I've never been camping. (Don't get me wrong, I love the outdoors, but I do so need my hot shower and fluffy pillows). My 10 month old would be a huge handful at a campsite; he's not quite walking, but never sitting still and always eating what he can get his hands on. Maybe we'll set up camp, cook out, tell stories and sing camp songs (off key-I can't carry a tune in a bucket) roast marshmellows, then climb into our cozy warm beds inside the house. Ok, it's cheating, I know. Can I at least have a real shower in the morning?
