- I need to change my clothes in it
- I need to change my kids's nappies in it
- Usually, Ireland is too windy so, I need it especially in such sandy place like the beach
I/My baby needs to sleep in it
- I need to keep myself away from the sun if not, I'll get
- I just want a good excuse to waste my money
- I can use it again and play with my kids in our back garden

Giving my sister a chance to show-off her skills
So, straight after dinner last Friday night, we went to 53 Degrees North, the outdoor shop where you can can get everythig from cold to hot weather gear. As for pop-up tents, there were a good few different brands on display but for economic reasons, I chose a tent that was cheapest yet was decent enough in terms of quality.
As soon as we got to the beach, the tent was up. It took less than 5 seconds! The tent popedp up nicely by itself. All we needed to do was pin it to the ground so that it won't move (or fly away) that easily.
After having lots of fun and an all-round wonderful time at the beach, it was finallly tme to clean up an pack all the stuff we brought along with us, includng the tent. So, with the instruction given, we followed exactly what was describe on the label. OMG! After a while of trying, some good friendly/intelligent arguments just to show off who can put the tent back in the bag, we finally managed to solve the problem. Ok.
What's going to work??? Team Work!!!I think I want to go back to the shop and ask for a refund. It's either that or they'll have to demonstrate to me the easiest way to wrap this thing back into its bag. The following day, my kids wanted to camp in our back garden and it happend again.
We need a good half and hour or more to just try to close it back to the bag's shape. Yup, it's so true it's a quick pitch pop-up tent but maybe we should have looked for the Easy pack back again pop up tent!
My sister trying hard to close the tent....and yet failed
Ps: My Baby boy is going to be ONE year old tomorrow!!! Tick tock tick tock. How time flies....
