The Big Sleep Over


When we got back from Trek, we set up the tent in our back yard so it could air out. The kids begged to sleep out in it, so we decided to let them. I honestly didn't think they'd make it through the entire night, but they did and apparently had a good time doing it. I on the other hand, was a paranoid mom and had to sleep with my windows open and made the dog sleep in the tent with them. I sure wish times weren't as scary these days. I remember sleeping out ALL summer long as a kid. Those were good times and I'm glad my kids got a small taste of that.

Sleeping out in the backyard was a favorite childhood memory! Cute picture.

We've been talking about doing that for our kids. I spent 2 months of one summer sleeping outside. I wish it was a little "safer" to do it these days. I can relate to your feelings.

Love this. Maybe in a few months... when the nights get down below 80...

My kids kept begging to sleep out as well, and I'm paranoid too. I really didn't want to sleep out with them though, so we hooked up the baby monitor and put the dog in the tent too! The also lasted all night, even little Brancyn-I was amazed.
