Activity Wednesday

This is a great summer activity if you're in a part of the country that is warm in the evenings.

Camp Out Time

Pull out the tents and sleeping bags and camp out in your back yard.  Don't forget to throw a tarp down so the bottom of your tent doesn't get too wet in the night.  Refresh the batteries in the flashlights and let the kids play light tag or imaginary swords.  

Serve up burgers and beans cooked on the barbeque.  Pop some smores in the microwave and serve up toasty warm.  Don't forget the hot chocolate and cider.  

Lay under the stars and see how many you can count.  Or snuggle in the tent and tell ghost stories.  Or it your kids are still little, tell some of their favorite fairy tales or old family stories.  Check your local library for books about camping or their favorite characters going camping. 

And don't forget to take lots of pictures to document your "camping trip."  

All the fun of camping with the convenience of indoor plumbing and without the costly price of gas.
