Backyard Campin’ & Fishin’ Fun

The weather this weekend was PERFECT! I got to take the tent out of the garage and set it up in the backyard and camp with the kiddos! Some of mine and some of my brothers girls. I LOVE to camp and since we couldn’t go as a family this was the next best thing, although I couldn’t have a fire, we are still on a burn ban here.

The girls loved the idea and my brothers kids too. We set up the tent then they got to set up each of their sleeping areas. They had a list of things that needed to be done and a list of things to do for the night. Kids are so funny. Some of the things were : scavenger hunt, smores, fun games, bug catching, HUGE sleepover.

All the little girls ready for bed. Bedtime was actually a breeze. They must of been tuckered out from all the fun and playing they did:)

Since we had company on Friday and the weather was still so AWESOME, we took advantage of a local park with a large pond. We decided after dinner on Saturday we’d take the kids out fishing. WHAT FUN!

Now, I’m an instant gratification type girl. I want to cast it out, catch my fish and reel it in. Hence, fishing is not for me. I took this time to just get some good pics of the kids and dad having fun.

Magic Bean got to use her pocket knife to cut the worms up to bait the hooks! One happy girl that made her.

Princess trying to be patient and it paid off.

The Dude didn’t last long, 30 minutes and mom had to take over his pole. Wasn’t such a bad thing though. Look what I caught!

Not bad for a cast and reel kinda girl!

Dexter is definitely one of the more patient ones, but even she was bummed nothing was biting.

Wild Bill got comfy and although she didn’t catch anything either I’m pretty sure she could’ve stayed there all night.

Dad didn’t get any fish either and he’s the “pro”. It’s just the gamble you take I guess.

We all had a lot of fun! I’m glad we got to make some memories for the family. What have you been up to this weekend? Did you do anything fun? Leave a comment or blog post link below and let us know what you’ve been up to!

Blessings,
Tiffany

    • Awe! Good:) We always try to do something every week with the kids. They need to know how much we love them and appreciate them being our kiddos:) Plus the hubby works alot to take care of our gang so it’s a time for him to be able to connect and love on them:)

    Looks like lots of fun! We love to camp as well and I remember the few times as a little girl we too could not take off camping so my mom did the same. She set up a tent in the back yard and we had a blast!
