My hubby absolutely loves the great outdoors. Hunting, fishing, hiking, sleeping under the stars, he loves it all. Luckily I'm pretty fond of the outdoors too. A few weeks ago, I got a text from Marc saying he wanted to go camping. It was in the middle of the school week, so I didn't think too much about it, thinking we could plan a weekend camping trip soon. Later that day, when I got home from school and rehearsal, I walked into a campground.
That's our front door to the left. Marc had set up the tent we got for Christmas in our living room. And the jean quilt that we got for Christmas was laid out as a picnic blanket. Inside the tents were blankets and foam pads. Here's the same thing from a different angle:
If you notice, we even had a "campfire." Marc had thought of everything! He found a video of campfire/outdoor sounds on youtube. So we had crackling fire and crickets in our living room.
And, I forgot to mention that Marc had changed his outfit to for the part. Here he is roasting hotdogs over our electric stove. Haha...it didn't really work very well. I think we ended up microwaving them. I love this picture of him though, he looks so rugged.
Here's our campfire dinner that he had gone out and bought for the occasion: juice, hotdogs, chips, and little peach fruit cups.
I was very surprised and so grateful that Marc had planned dinner! I was having a rough day that day and Marc was so sweet to take care of everything. And I loved that he made it a themed dinner! (I love those!) In case you were wondering, yes we did sleep in the tent that night. For most of the night at least. I decided halfway through the night that the bed in the next room sounded much more pleasant. I guess we'll have to use our tent in the great outdoors soon. But for now, it works for the great indoors.
