I'm taking the dc away alone a few times this summer. I'd like to take a gazebo for cooking / eating and playing under if it's wet. Any recommendations for one I could easily put up alone?

How about a pop up one like this?

Or proper day shelters are strong as can be properly guyed. We have a bigger khyam rigidome version of one of these, its storm proof but needs 2 people to erect. Kept 15 dry in last weekends heavy rain though!
The cheap garden ones tend to get blown away/bent poles in high winds, so best to go for one designed for camping.

The pop up one is what I was looking for as it would be so easy to do alone which watching the dcs. Thank you!

Just make sure you train your DC to help wrestle it back into the bag at the end of your trip smile

Haha. I could try. They're 2 and 5 though so not much use!
