The Great American Backyard Campout

We did it.  We bought a tent.  And we are making plans to go soon.  And since this is our first camping adventure as a family, I want to make sure its nothing but perfect.  So whats a girl to do?  I called on my local blogger group for any advice or posts to help me prepare.  Suddenly we were talking about steaks and cakes and all kinds of good stuff that I almost wanted to bust the tent out tonight!  Im that excited.

Then the ever so wonderful Debi over at SA Busy Kids tells me to check out The Great American Backyard Campout.  Have yall ever heard of this.  How am I just now finding out about this.  Or did I already know and forget?  All I know is this is going to be fun with a capital F!

So what is it?  Every 4th Saturday in June people from all over camp out.  This year it will be on June 22nd.   Write that down and join us!  You can find all the info you need at

Have you ever sent your kids outside while explaining how back when you were a kid we played outside with what ever we had and didn't sit inside all day infront of a screen?  I do it all the time. I didn't have a DS or Ipad. Back home we only had two channels on the TV and one was news. We played in the dirt, we climbed trees and make forts!  You too?  Well today only 25% of kids play outside daily.  I will admit, my boys spend way to much time inside and I have been pushing to change that.  And this I think will be the start of many more camping adventures.  

I am debating on forming a team or just going the individual route.  Either way I hope some of you join me!  What do you say?  Sounds like fun right??
