Ellen really really wants to go camping. Joe and I really really think it's too much work. So we camped out in the backyard! Unfortunately we couldn't get the tent set up due to missing poles! But we built a fire and we made tin-foil dinners (or "camp food" as Ellen calls it) and s'mores. We all sat out in the backyard for hours until the fire died. Best part was that after that we all came inside took showers and put on nice clean clothes and went to bed. Okay that wasn't really the best part, but it was enjoyable afterwards.
