Camping… in our backyard

Nate and I have decided that this summer we are going to try our hand at camping.  Car camping from what everyone tells us.  Today we found ourselves a wonderful tent, a cooler, dishes, and cooking pots.

This afternoon we decided to set it up in the backyard to practice.

This is the footprint and Molly.  She was a little freaked out by the whole thing.

Here is the tent – not together mind you and backwards – or so we thought.

We put the poles in and Molly decided to explore and managed to get herself in between the footprint and the tent itself.

After setting it up in the wrong direction twice we finally figured it out once we put the fly on (the brown cover).

Once we got it together we decided to head in and see what it was like.  The legs you see are Nate’s.

Our Molly turns out to be quite the camping puppy.  See is on alert here watching out for the birds that frequent the yard.  Some dared to enter and she attempted to run through the screen window and instead bounced back.

Molly and Nate enjoying the tent, though Molly is concerned about the birds.

The tent is now pegged down and secure.  We’ve decided to try it out tonight and have a camp out in the backyard.  We are having a camping style meal including S’Mores.  I’ll let you know how it turned out.
