Family Time Memories – Winter Camp-out

This past weekend, we had our first ever indoor campout!  It couldn’t have come at a better time, either.

After a day full of fun in the SNOW, we got to cozy up and relax with an awesome family campout in our nice warm house!

We got it all set up in our upstairs game/school room.

The kids had fun getting their sleeping bags set up just right around mommy and daddy’s air mattress (which had mostly deflated by morning by the way – oops and ouch!)

Testing out the sleeping quarters for the evening!

After setting up the tent, it was time for SMORES of course! 😉

Smores AND games!!

Mmmmmmm, oh yeah!  Sticky, ooey, gooey goodness!


We followed it all up with a movie ’til midnight!

Having this special family night with the kids was so much fun!  The kids were so excited, and enjoyed every.single.minute of it!!  What special fun memories were created, that we will cherish forever.

It doesn’t take much time or money.  Giving your time to your kids is one of the best gifts you can ever give them!  They won’t always remember the presents you bought them, but they will remember the time you spent with them (or didn’t spend with them), and how much you loved them!



  1. Oooo-eee! Fun, fun idea! Gonna have to store that one in my idea bank. We are planning on purchasing camping equipment someday in the near future! Can’t believe we don’t have any yet…I LOVE camping! 😉

    • It was fun! You could even do it without a tent…that was our original plan, to just spread out stuff all over the floor to sleep on/in! Or build your own tent..the kids had thought of doing that too and sleeping in their home-made tent!
