If you are familiar with the term staycation then backyard camping is nothing new. Staycation is a neologism for a period of time in which an individual or family stays and relaxes at home, possibly taking day trips to area attractions. Staycations achieved popularity in the US during the financial crisis of 2007–2010. That’s according to Wikipedia, I think someone need to go in and edit the year to current as we are still in a financial crisis. So backyard camping is a fun way to visit my dad and the girls seem to love it, of course I’m the only crazy adult backyard camping with them.
It’s a bit chilly outside and the campfire is warm and toasty. I guess I’m still very old fashion when it comes to camping with a campfire, and campfire is a must for winter camping.
And roasting marshmallow is a must also.
It could get very sticky and messy.
My niece loves her giant marshmallow. Her and Lee loves to tell ghost stories and they are happy campers. I can’t wait to go on a real camping trip again, this time I hope we get to camp by the creek.
As for the backyard, my sister’s cabbages and broccoli are coming along nicely in this cool weather.
Her broccoli flowers are beautiful, and she didn’t even know they have flowers.
