First off I just have to say that I have never been a big camper. As I child I went to summer camp almost every summer and one year we took an “out trip” which involved, canoeing, portaging and camping and I hated every second of it, not because it was a lot of work but because of the company, but that is an entirely different blog. When I married my husband I knew that he was fond of camping and he brought it up from time to time, but I always shot it down, I was not going to do it. Then oddly enough last summer, and at the age of 39, when my oldest was 2 and the twins were 1 and after we had been married for 11 years, I got the camping bug. Now it was partly because my sister wife JESS suggested we go as a group that made it seem appealing , when she brought it up something inside me came to life and I was immediately in love with the idea. So last summer for the first time since I was at camp 24 years earlier I went camping and I LOVED IT, so much we did it twice!
We have 2 camping trips planned this summer, one with my sister wife again and one with my brother T and his daughter Z. I am looking forward to all the meal planning, kids activities, the swimming and just getting campy smelly and campy dirty…..
This section of my blog I plan on posting last years trips and any further camping trips we take as a way to journal them for my kids.
