Oh A Camping We Will Go...

~No bears, no bugs or snakes around,
But we'll have fun sleeping on the ground!
Mom is thankful there's nothing icky to worry about, 
'cause this will be a camp IN, not a camp OUT;)"~
Today is National Smores Day!
How AWESOME is that!?!?
In my opinion though, you can't celebrate smores without a camp out right!?!?
So in honor of this oh so SWEET holiday--we decided to do just that!

Now y'all, I'm all about sleeping outside under the stars, but in this 100 degree heat, sleeping in the air condition sounds much more appealing to me;)
But just because we're camping inside tonight, that doesn't mean our experience had to lack in authenticity!
No sirree!

We pitched a tent... in our living room!

 Had a visit from a "wild" animal;) 
Ate roasted hot dogs for dinner...that were precooked on the stove!

Roasted marshmallows over an open fire!

And the best part...
We indulged in some yummy S'MORES/brownies for dessert! ooey gooey deliciousness!
I found a GREAT recipe here and the boys helped me put these together this afternoon!!!!

And in keeping with our camping/outdoorsy theme of the day...

the boys also had fun putting together a bird house this afternoon!
 We can't wait to hang them up in the backyard and see who will make these their home!

Happy National Smores Day Everyone!
