Camping with Pa

Tis true the Franzenfam has been known to watch Little House on the Prairie and the rumor that we own and watched (multiple times) every season just might be a valid one.

However when it comes doing things like they did in the good ole days well we are amiss!

The kids convinced Pa to go camping last weekend. He agreed, unpacked the tent from the garage and headed out to the backyard to set up camp....



It was a great night creating some “camping” memories and it all occurred from the comfort of our own home. In fact Ma got the whole bed to herself…inside!








Definitely my kind of camping!

That is pretty cute! Did you join them for the hotdog roasting at least? :)

I did, along with games in the tent...all activities leading up to actual slumber in the tent...then I retired to my own bed, inside! :-)

Cute idea. Ma takes after her Ma as that's my kind of camping -- sleeping in my own bed in my own house. You go girl!

Yep, that's my kind of camping too! We didn't sleep in the tent once this past summer. We missed our church's weekend camping trip and never got around to setting it up in yard...which, I'm not too upset about as Colin was 18 months old - I think this summer will be a better time!

Nothing beats a fire toasted marshmallow! :-D

My favorite kind of family story. I hope your kids remember it forever.

My idea of "roughing it" is staying in a hotel without a hair dryer. So yes, that's my kind of camping, too.
