We bought a tent and pitched it in the backyard. Bert built a "bonfire" (charcoal grill with a log in the middle) and we invited our good friends, The Fain's. Fun fact: Maureen, or as Jack calls her "Merine" is a redhead, and all three of their children are redheaded too. So, you can just imagine the comments we get when together in public with seven redheaded children running about.
We roasted hotdogs, made smores, let the kids play in the tent with flashlights, told spooky stories, sang campfire songs, and had a blast. Then, when it was time for bed, everyone went back to their own bedrooms and slept like champs. That's my kinda camping!
Mr. Beans even joined in the fun. This is a pic of the "campfire" the kids built.
Spooky stories... Oooohhhh!
