First camping trip for the six of us!

We attempted our first family camping trip last night.  We set up the tent just off of our patio, about fifteen steps from the back door. 

The tent provided a perfect place to run, jump, dance, and do other tricks.

We roasted marshmallows, made s'mores, and decided that a kitchen sink is a necessity.  We will not be packing marshmallows for a real camping trip until our youngest is at least fourteen.

The kids decided which partition belonged to which group of sleepers.  Here is Graham's 'room'.
Here are Bea and Inga in their own little room.  We slept in the middle section, which held our queen air mattress and William's crib mattress.  The crib mattress, William, and mommy all escaped at 1:00 am when William decided he was ready to start the day.  The other campers finished out the night.

It was a rough night for Will...
But we had such a good time!

Looks like all had a good time (possibly noy Will or mum).

Have you tried roasted banana? They are delicious warm and gooey.

Roasted banana?! We've never tried it! do you put it on something or how do you eat it?
