I grew up going camping with our family. I’ve tent camped, tent-trailer camped, and 5th-wheel camped. I swear I’ve been to half the campgrounds in the American southwest!
I have so many fond memories of setting up the campsite, hiking with my family, playing cribbage with my dad at the picnic table, and making s’mores around the campfire at night. We played in the forest and swam in the lake. We got incredibly dirty, which is one of the best parts of being a kid!
Now that our boys are a little older, we can’t wait to take them on a family camping trip!
We love to get outside as a family and get away from it all. But the idea of sleeping with two in a tent has been a bit much. We love camping though, and had a camp-themed birthday party for them one year and even had s’mores at our wedding instead of cake! The boys just turned 5, so camping will definitely be in our near future as a family!
Right now, most of our furniture is packed away for our move to Washington State. So Ryan was thinking about pitching a tent in the backyard and doing a mini camping trip with them right outside our house. I think it would be a good introduction to camping. And I bet they would get a kick out of snuggling up in a sleeping bag in a tent with dad by their side!
