About two years ago we invested in a large cabin tent from Cabela's. Justin put it up last night. It is NOT a Springbar tent. It took him 90 minutes to get it up. It was a bit confusing especially fitting the rain cover over the tent. He ended up getting the rain cover flipped so the front entrance oriented at the back window of the tent. Hopefully it will be easier next time. While he worked on the tent I made a picnic dinner of hamburgers, deviled eggs, and chips. Amelia declared I was the best girl chef ever. I still remember the evening before when she said that the food I cooked was gross...kids! Justin set up sleeping spaces for him and the kids. He got out his hobo stove and helped Amelia roast marshmallows. Amelia stuffed four marshmallows in her cheeks for fun! Chubby Bunny Face! Justin said the kids slept well out in the tent. Phillip had a hard time falling asleep and whined off and on all night (boy to I know about the night whining). What a fun diversion in our own home!
PS: I found a Perry the Platypus shirt at Salvation Army for Phillip next year. He will not take it off! It looks like a dress. So cute!
