Our plans were to go camping at a state park in Vermont, but plans needed to be changed after we planned a big trip to Kansas and Colorado. We just couldn't fit it all in the schedule. So, we decided to just half camp at home. We were too busy to even set up the tent in the backyard. The kids did "camp out" downstairs in a homemade indoor tent.
Anyway, we enjoyed our favorite parts of camping: the campfire, the marshmellows, the stories under the stars, the campfire dinner, early morning breakfast outside with the Coleman stove, hot chocolate, hot tang, pancakes and bacon, and family together time.
