Really Fake Camping

 We had a pretty laid back week-end because we were supposed to be camping in Wisconsin with the Pfour and the Tillotsons.  Soccer schedules and injuries got the better of all of us, however, and we ended up canceling our annual trip. We were completely bummed, but rather than pout about it we enjoyed a really fake camp-out with the Tillotsons in our back yard last night.  We pitched our tent (it is a heck of a lot bigger than we remembered) and stoked a campfire.  We had all kinds of camping foods...yucky cheese in can, baked beans, jiffy pop, beef jerky, cheap beer, and even hot dogs on sticks!  The evening ended perfectly with a batch of Aim's gourmet s'mores!  The things she does to s'mores are just insane...try using a peanut butter cup instead of a Hershey's bar and you'll start to get the idea.

 Our really fake camp-out didn't make up for missing our annual trip, but it sure did feel comfy around that fire pit while the kids played board games in the tent.  Our evening felt like it ended to soon (it was a school night after all), but we decided the only thing that was missing from our night around the fire were the Pfour.
Cheers guys!  We missed you last night.
