For those of you who know me well, know how much I absolutely love camping! My commitment to my kids and camping is once a year we go camping with the Girl Scouts! Unfortunately for me, this was time number two. Time number one was earlier this year with Emily. I'm sure that the extra camping trip will get me bonus nominations for Mother of the Year!
Here was our shelter/cooking area.
I had brought an air mattress along with me and blew it up before it got dark unfortunately it was only half full when I went to bed and the pump was dead. We also had the great luck of being assigned the spot with all of the tree roots underneath the tent. Boy was I looking forward to this night! I snuck my MP3 player in with me and I listened to it while I slept so fortunately I did get some sleep (define some!).
Here's a pic of Katie and I in the morning in front of our tent. I brought the 5-6 person one instead of the 3 person so it gave us lots of room to be uncomfortable in!
I liked the look on Katie's face in this one.
before and it really does make a difference. I just need to put the time in to make it work. There are lots of people who do it and you can find links to them here.
