Date Night: Indoor Camping

It's Wednesday and we're all just wishing it was the weekend. In Canada, we're sad that our long weekend is over, and in the US, you're all getting ready for a long weekend. Either way, today is not a great day. Here is idea for you tonight to spice up the day. I used this idea as a date night, but it would work perfectly for a family night too.

Over the weekend Mr. Firefly and I bought an air mattress for our camping trips this summer. We wanted to make sure that there were no holes in it so we inflated it. Then I got the great idea to gather all of my plants and candles and create an indoor camping experience. I found some marshmallows and chocolate chips to make a "trail mix" for a snack. We turned on a movie and had a free date night.

I would love to do this when we have kids. I would make these.

These cute pup tents are from Lindsay and Drew. They made them from flat sheets, wood, and PVC pipes. I'm sure they would be a great hit with children. 

I can't wait to share some more fun "date nights" that cost next to nothing.

Happy Camping,

PS: Here's where we link up.
