Spring Ahead Backyard Campout

What better way to spend a short Saturday night than camping out in your own backyard? Friends joined in for scary story time around the fire and S'mores cooked on coat hangers over a Duraflame. I slept like a baby on an air mattress topped with a featherbed, sleeping bags and my favorite pillow - luxuries I'd never haul up a mountain!

Too cold where you live? Rough it with an indoor campout! Haul out the sleeping bags and let the kids sleep in a tent in the living room. Read by flashlight (no TV, phones, computers, etc.) tell stories by the fireplace (if you have one) - cook S'mores in the microwave or over your gas stove (if you don't)!

What a fun way to celebrate setting the clocks ahead an hour!


hot dogs

Admittedly not from my "Healthy Meals in Minutes" file, but once a year is okay with me. (And really, would it sound like as much fun if I revealed that the buns were 100% whole wheat, we air popped the popcorn, topped it with olive oil and sea salt or that we grilled broccoli along side the turkey dogs? Well maybe in California! lol)
