Camping or Glamping!!!!!!

So today after a work meeting this morning (more on that later) the kids and I headed out to look at some specialist 'camping' stores.
Yes, we are soon to be real life campers.
We have a tent - a great second hand purchase thanks to some friends. Now I have camped in a previous life, some 25 years ago, and things have certainly come a long way.
Camping back then looked something like this
So a lot has happened since then.
Now you can get tents with rooms, ensuites, lights, air conditioners, heaters, built in tv (Ok maybe not that - but shouldn't be long!)

So, we have a tent.  We had a little test run the other day in the backyard - basically in the only 1/2 hour of sunshine we have had this week.

How hard could it be with the three of us.  Started with this.....

Then a bit of this......

And quite a lot of this.........

So 45 minutes later and we had this!!!!

Not too shabby!!!!

(OK, so Georgia is either 18 foot tall or we haven't quite worked out how to do the front bit properly but let's not get too fussy here!)

Yes, there may have been one or two pieces left over, and a bit of a strange lean but isn't that all the fun of camping.

However, I haven't given up on my dream..... of this. Someday :)

Hope you are having a great weekend
