It's one of those things I've never done before. I didn't grow up in a family where people went camping and few of my friends ever did it. But it seems like a cool experience. It would give us an opportunity to just spend time together away from the TVs and computers and Kindles and video games.
I think it'd even be cool, baby in tow. I mean we could use prefolds or gDipes to make it easy. Or we could temporarily switch to sposies.
The problem is, I don't know how to plan a trip. How do I know where to go? Should we get a tent or look for places with cabins? What do we need to take? How will we cook? Can we fish (by we I mean everyone but me)? I need like a "Camping for Dummies" which I am absolutely certain exists. Also, I have to somehow get the hubby on board. The fishing should take care of that.
Have you ever been camping? Got any advice for me?
Here's who'd be going:
- Me, the mama
- Lettuce, the papa
- Astronaut, 11 year old boy
- Princess, 9 year old girl
- Squirrel, 6 year old girl
- Side Salad, 4 year old boy
- Popcorn, tiny bundle of joy
Help us out-how do we plan our first family camping trip?
