It seems to be a tradition of many to go camping on the May Long Weekend. Luke and I decided to cash in on the tradition.
Luke has a field trip next week to the Grand Canyon and after figuring out that it would be cheaper to buy instead of rent some camping supplies, we went to walmart and bought a few things.
One thing we bought: a tent for $15 (on sale from $20). This way if the tent isn't great, we didn't put a lot of money into it. But we wanted to test it out. So we had a campout last night...
a campout in our living room.
Luke barely fits in the tent length-wise. Like my Dad said "i've seen those two-man tents, and i don't know who those two men are"
But we are happy with our purchase(s). (we also got a sleeping bag, head lamp, waterbottle, foam for the sleeping bag all for less than renting them for the weekend)
We were even going to make smores - but i opted to make cookies instead.
Whether camping outside or in the living room, the worst part is still waking up and having to go to the bathroom in the middle of the night.
I am glad we got some camping gear - it made for a great start to a long weekend.
