where we: camp in our living room

we REI-ed it up after our wedding and got some quality goods to make for some quality camping. but with the exception of a 2-night excursion to moab, we haven’t had the chance to put our new gear to use.

so what better time to do so than during good ol’ storm gandolf?

on friday night david and i fine dined on chipotle taco salads and then came home for a cozy living room camp-out.

we had plans to do all my favorite camping activities: build a campfire (light every candle we have and collect them outside the tent), play ’round the campfire games (bananagrams) and roast ourselves some ‘mallows (over the candle campfire).

despite rango being a lame idea, the cool kunz cozy camp-out was an excellent idea. i mean, camping with a kitchen, bathroom, heater and without worry of dirt, bugs, coldness is primetime. i can wholeheartedly recommend that.
