Party Recap

We hosted a backyard campout yesterday lasting thru until the next morning.

We had 8 families come set up their tents and camp out with us. We had a bonfire, hot dogs, campfire beans, a movie (Yogi Bear), consession stand, trail mix and so much more! The children were all up past midnight....In the morning, we all had a great breakfast and the kids played some more.

I purchased a printable party set from Shindigs Parties to Go.
