Camping with Harry Potter

Camping is an essential part of the BC day long weekend for my husband’s family, and hence, for our little family unit. We never fail to have a good time, though camping with children has its many challenges and offers little rest for the weary.

While packing for our weekend away I couldn’t help but thinking of Harry Potter and coveting the tent he stayed in at the Quidditch World Cup. I mean the decor is a bit Bohemian for my taste but it beats a blow up mat on the floor.

Not to mention the other benefits that living in a magical world would offer to the camping experience. Those annoying neighbors with the blasting music: MUFFLIATO! The RVs running their generators: MUFFLIATO! That toddler screaming at the top of her lungs: MUFFLIATO! (oh wait, she’s mine, must attend). Really “muffliato” is the only spell you need…though a good sleeping spell would be useful for the children.

Now I have a confession to make. My camping experience was a bit unique this year. You see, the baby and I spent the nights in the hotel. I wonder if Harry’s tent had a soaker tub?

Happy BC Day!
