A Weekend Home

This past weekend, we took a break from the house. I feel like we've been taking a lot of breaks from the house and, unfortunately, that's just going to happen more and more as we get further and further into the summer. At least we've arrived at a comfortable point that involves a lot of waiting and very little physical labour.

This past weekend, we took a break from the city. As much as I love the subway, and having friendly neighbours so close, and as cute as our little bungalow may be, we're country kids at heart and every so often, I miss the space, the quiet, the dark. Good thing we've got campgrounds within a decent distance! So, for this weekend, we traded in a bed, a kitchen, a comfy couch for this:

Cozy, perhaps, and it kept us dry through the thunderstorms that forced us to sleep in until we could sleep in no longer on Saturday morning, but I still returned home with bruises on my hips from sleeping on not enough padding. Perhaps a foam layer is in order for next time...

In actuality I think we should upgrade to this:

Or this:

Or even this, even though it looks like it doesn't have much extra padding, or any ability to keep the rain off:

It's just so pretty and colourful and reminds me of the sheet and pillow tents and caves my best friend and I made in her basement and then slept in until I told the scariest story she'd ever heard and she insisted on returning to the familiarity and safety of her own bed.


  1. What about an air mattress? One that doesn't leak!

  2. So fun!! I'm hoping to schedule at least one camping weekend this summer. It's amazing how fast the summer weekends fill up with "stuff." Glad you guys could sneak away!

    Comfy! But require way too much work to pump up.

    Um. We threw out your air mattress. Mocha helped the leaking problem.
