Our Camping Trip

We celebrated my husband's birthday over the weekend with a family camping trip, this is something that we had been wanting to do forever and I am so glad that we finally were able to make it happen!!  It was my brother-in-law's idea, and even though I might not seem like a typical camper type girl, I'm all about making memories and doing different and fun things with the kids.  I actually ended up loving the whole adventure, and the girls had the best time, they loved being able to spend an entire night with their cousin and especially loved having tons of freedom and no bedtime at all!

Since we had three kids five & under, we decided to stay close to home, just to be on the safe side.  It still was a campground though, and we did all actually stay in tents for the entire night, so I totally count it as legit camping trip -- just with a few added benefits. :)  We had electricity & bathrooms, and the campground also had a pool and jumping pads (that the kids LOVED!).  This will definitely be a new tradition for us, our girls are still talking about it and this is just the sort of thing that I want them to remember about their childhood.


Fun fact, my husband stayed up way too late drinking way too much, and may still be recovering.  Things change when you get old. ;)  Happiest birthday babe, we love you and loved celebrating you!
