C was for camping! Yes, that's right! We went camping in January. Well, it was climate controlled camping. We pitched a tent in our living room and "camped" within the comforts of our home.
Lydia Grace really wanted to help her daddy pitch the tent. I'm glad they knew what they were doing. I have never put up a tent in my life. I'm not very outdoorsy. I love nature and being outside, but I have never gone on a true camping trip. Maybe one day when L.G. is older, and it isn't so cold outside we will do the whole fishing, sleeping under the stars, waking at 4 a.m. to the sound of chirping birds type of camping trip. For now, this was a perfect way to camp.
Lydia Grace really loved playing inside the tent. She didn't want to come out. Well, until is was time to eat...
Hot dogs=the perfect camping food.
Southerners really know how to pile up their hots dogs: ketchup, mustard, chili, chowchow for relish, cole slaw, and cheese.
Confession: The chili and the hot dogs were vegetarian. Yep, I go the veggie way! Kinda defeats the whole "southern" thing, doesn't it? What an oxymoron! A southern vegetarian!
S'mores=the perfect camping dessert
When it got dark, we snuggled up inside the tent. Tim even told some campfire stories to Lydia Grace--nothing scary. We had a great time together! The tent really brought us together for some great family bonding time!
Our little camper got tuckered out and finally feel fast asleep. I can't even begin to tell you what a great evening it had been though.
Proving that having fun together as a family is as easy as ABC!
