We love to camp … like, not really in a tentÂ (unless we’re in the backyard), but I’m all about a camper.
Now, let me say that the kids and Dan would be just fine in a tent. But me? Eh, not so much.
However, I do love to pitch a tent in the backyard … for several reasons. We can hang out and roast marshmallows and make it seem like we’re camping, but still have the baby’s crib nearby. AND, it’s nice for sunny days when the kids want to be outside because they can trot in and out when they need a little extra shade.
This Wenzel tent measures 8.5 x 8 and sleeps 3 people … so whether you’re using it for the backyard (hello awesome sleepover parties!!!) or for an actual camping adventure, you’ll have the room you need. It’s also (of course) water resistant and has a mud mat, so if your littles still wanted to be outdoors, even in the rain, they wouldn’t track dirt all through your nice, new tent.
On sale at Amazon, consider picking up some other camping goodies while you’re there.
