As summer draws to an end, it is clearer than ever that the warm mid-year months bring about a certain sense of nostalgia, which keeps the same activities popular year after year, decade after decade.
An all-time favorite, camping in the backyard, never goes out of style for kids and kids-at-heart. In addition to setting up a tent and filling it with sleeping bags and pillows, having an open fire or a table-top fire pit is a serious bonus. After all, sitting in camping chairs and making ooey, gooey, chocolaty s’mores is high on the list of backyard fun and adds enough sugar to help everyone stay up long enough to see the stars shine fully. Do not forget the flashlight necessary to shine upwards beneath the chin while sharing the urban legends and ghost stories passed down through the generations!
