We chose a Friday night for our camp out since we wouldn't have to rush to work the next day. Unfortunately for us though, we also chose one of the hottest days of the year. It was in the high 30's most of the day. So while setting up the tent, we nearly melted. Considering setting up a tent isn't that much physical activity, we really shouldn't have been soaked through by the end of it. Or maybe we should have waited until the sun was a little lower in the sky. Either way, we had the tent set up and ready to go, the firewood piled by the fire, and our sleeping bags unrolled by 6pm.

The other great thing about camping in your own backyard, meals are so much easier! We didn't need to pack anything. For breakfast we headed inside, got what we wanted, and then came back out to enjoy the early morning sunshine. It was heavenly.
