50 Free Dates: Indoor campout

Last night we did a little campout date in the living room. It turned out super fun! We knew we would need both boys to be in bed asleep before we could even think of preparing for this date, luckily both were down by about 7:15.

We moved all of our furniture out of the way and set up our tent and aerobed.

I had made an indoor camping version of s'mores. Marshmallows dipped in melted chocolate and covered with Graham cracker crumbs. Truth be told I don't love s'mores but I will make these again with pretzel crumbs instead of the crackers.
We snuggled in to watch Ernest Goes to Camp. Don't judge....
Note: if you sleep in a tent in the living room expect to find this in the morning.
He thought it was a blast!

The Mann made us all pancakes to end a perfect date as a family. (photo also taken by Carter from inside the tent)
We had a blast and it was so nice to do something else so out of the ordinary but free! This coming weekend is our 7th anniversary and we have the ultimate weekend of free dates planned. Hopefully we will have good things to report! If you have any free date ideas for us please share! We'd love to hear from you!!
