Backyard Campout

One thing David has been looking forward to since we found out we were having a boy was be able to do campouts with him. When we first started looking at out house one of the best things about it was the huge yard. Since David didn't have work this weekend we decided to take advantage of our awesome yard and do a campout. Logan was so excited about it and talked about it all day. While him and David were setting up the tent he was talking so fast and so much about all the things they were going to do.

First we had a fire to roast marshmallows. My parents got us this firepit for Christmas and we have definitely been getting use of it.


Next was reading stories in the tent. Logan loved that he got to sleep in a sleeping bag. After stories, Brooklyn and I went and slept inside and the boys read a few more books.
They slept out there all night. I thought for sure they would have ended up inside at some point in the night. Logan even out slept David. After he woke up he asked if we could do it again. Lucky for him there is a big cousin sleepover at my grandparents house tonight. He can't wait to sleep in the tent again!

One of my favorite things to do it to set up the tent out in the back yard and have a little campout. So glad you guys like it, too. Wonderful memories for you guys!! Hope little Brookyln is doing well!!
