Last night was date night for my husband Carl and me! I decided to surprise him with a special night of indoor camping! I found these cute printables at Free Pretty Printables and edited a few on Microsoft Word. When he got home, he found signs directing him to our campsite.
Of course there wasn't any cell phone reception that far out.
I decked out our living room in camping gear! Tent, sleeping bags, cooler, fire pit, and games! What more could you need? Missing the sound of nature? You can find hour long videos on YouTube with the sounds of nature and a scenic view of a river with water running.
For dinner we had camp food - hot dogs & baked green tomatoes. (I'll share that recipe with you later!)
Dessert? S'mores, of course!
Looking for a lighter version? Using Annie's Organic honey grahams, 1 marshmallow, and a tablespoon of toll house dark chocolate chips.
We finally got to use our Hershey's S'more maker we got last Christmas! Don't have a S'more maker? Try a s'more recipe! There's also grilled s'mores.
|Don't worry - we moved the S'more maker to the table! Catching our carpet on fire wouldn't have been a good end to the night.|
The night's entertainment? Games and a movie (that's the beauty of indoor camping).
Even Maggie enjoyed camping! She especially liked hanging out in the tent.
|We may have disregarded the S'more maker instructions about NOT catching marshmallows on fire. But burnt marshmallows are SO good!|
