Father's Day - Wenzel Vacation Lodge (Large) Tent

Father's day is nearly here. It seems to have arrived especially fast this year. What really makes it so surprising is that(in my opinion) Father's Day is basically the beginning of summer. Not only does school get out for the summer right around Father's Day, but the official first day of summer is only about a week after as well.

Father's Day has always just embodies summer to me, so I love to combine that feeling into our Father's Day festivities. I love to have a cookout and get outdoors for some summer fun, and my husband does as well. This give me a basic theme that makes choosing a gift a little easier.

This year I decided on a gift that would be an adventure, not only for my husband, but for the whole family. After all, Father's Day is all about appreciating dads. So, naturally, finding new ways to spend time with them is pretty much the key agenda.

When I think of summer, I think of the outdoors and getting back to nature, having an adventure and having more fun that one person should be allowed. All of that can be done in one super fun, family activity - CAMPING!

While camping can be incredible fun, with young kids it can also be challenging. They are too young to sleep in their own tent, and everyone being cramped in a small tent is no fun at all, so we needed the ultimate family tent in order to make a camping trip into a successful getaway.

When looking for a tent, especially one that is meant to be a gift for my husband for Father's Day, it was very important to me that we have the very best. This is one place that one should not skimp as it will be your home away form home for the duration of your trip(s).

I wanted something I knew I could trust, so it was important to choose a brand that has a reputation for excellence. There was no choice that could compare to Wenzel. Wenzel has been The elite company for all things camping related since 1887, over a century before I was even born! If that does not speak to their time tested quality, then nothing does.

Not only that, but the quality of Wenzel products is evident just by looking at them, even in photos, you can actually see how well made their tents are. When I saw the Large Vacation Lodge, I instantly fell in love and knew it would make the perfect Father's Day Gift.
This tent is truly grand. It can sleep 10, which ensures our family of 4 will have plenty of room to move and interact within the tent, a vital feature with these rambunctious children.
This tent can be use with or without the seam sealed fly to provide the perfect experience in any weather. The fly protects from rain and blocks more sun, whereas without the fly the roof is vented with mesh for more fresh air.

What I really love though is that the fly can be used on the frame alone to create a shade canopy. I am sure other tents may offer that, but I have never seen one. That just raises the overall value of this tent, since now it can be used for backyard gatherings and just every day outside time.

My husband and I like to sit outside when he gets off work and on the weekends and watch the kids play on the swingset or the trampoline, but the sun is just so relentless, having a shady play to sit that we can move wherever we desire is very nice.

Overall, the tent will only be on aspect of the actual gift my husband will be receiving.The wonderful times he will have and the lifelong memories we will all create are what make this a present above and beyond all the rest.

If you are looking for a gift that will be the catalyst for many adventures for years to come, I highly suggest one of Wenzels many incredible tents, like the Large Vacation Lodge. I can pretty much guarantee it will be the best tent you've ever owned.
