Great American Campout....
This past Saturday (June 28) was Great American Campout Day. In honor of that day we decided to do a practice run with the tent. We are actually taking the boys camping for the first time next month, so we wanted to make sure that we could actually assemble the tent. Not having a yard we decided to try and set it up in the living room and leave it up all day for the kids to play in. Well we got it set up and realized that it was just to large for the living room to leave it up all day. We ended up giving the boys a few minutes in it before we took it down. So here are some of the pictures.

To start off with Dh took Sam on an errand that morning. Well I thought "Oh this will be easy enough to put together." HEHEHEHE, Silly me. Should of known better when this was my helper. He is so cute but not very helpful. So When Dh got home we finished putting it together. That went a bit easier with him helping. Imagine that.
The boys were peeking out and having a good time.
A Picture inside the tent. Dh wanted to get it bigger for the fact Gabe likes to be able to move a lot and he did want him on top of everybody. Well he succeded. It is so big the boys were racing each other inside the tent. What a day that was. At least we know that we can get the tent up now.

YAY!! These tents are tricky setting them up. I would fail if I had to set one up on my own. hehe
