We were expecting rain, but nothing was going to stop our backyard campout.


As it turns out, we didn’t even get a drizzle. Although it might’ve cooled things off a bit because the air was still a little warm as we headed into the tent. We took the windows down to get the breeze blowing and it soon got more comfortable. …

Anyway, it was still early, so we watched “Guardians of the Galaxy 2” on the iPad…


Then settled off to sleep…and quite contentedly, I might add.


In the morning, I slipped out of the tent while the boys snoozed and started some coffee.


With coffee in hand, I set-up the table and the ol’ Coleman stove to cook our breakfast…


The boys had a good time and thought eating outside was GREAT!


Best buddies…

Best Buds
