Camping Out

The tent on the lawn

A midnight snack (at about 10:50pm)

Annemarie left yesterday afternoon, but I still have some photos to post from her stay.
The kids decided to have a camp-out in the garden, and got out the Marcouxs tent. It was a good practise for our summer holiday, and I'm glad we weren't trying to put up the tent for the first time in the dark. I'm all for one of the 2-minute tents now...
It took a long time to erect, but the tent is big enough for the whole family to sleep in. The first night Annemarie and Sophie and Bonnie slept in the tent, and then the next night Roger and I slept there with all four kids. The thing we haven't found yet is any mattresses...

2 seconds!!? So how long does it take to pack away??
Anything less than an hour is looking good to me...
What I need is a trip to Decathlon!
