We rented a little camping trailer and set off on a camping adventure! Our van can tow a trailer....and renting the trailer was a great price! Unfortunately I didn't get any photos of the outside of the trailer but it was a 17' trailer with a double bed, bunk beds, bathroom and kitchen. We LOVED it!!!
The three biggest boys slept in a tent while Cam and I and the littles slept inside the trailer. It was cozy and fun!! And...the bathroom got used A LOT! That was worth the price of the rental just so I didn't have to walk to the restrooms in the middle of the night....in the dark....with the boogeyman.
My dad and stepmom were also camping with us. It was a fun time!
Sis loved them trailer more than any of us! Her life long dream is to grow up, buy a truck, a camper and a horse. She spent hours sweeping the floor of the trailer so it would be neat and tidy! She loved laying in the bunk listening to music.
Everyone loved the toilet in the trailer....maybe a bit too much. It was a novelty for sure. Cam and I learned ALL about grey water and black water. And after learning that we would have to connect the drainage hose to empty the tanks we decided NO poopy in the trailer toilet...only pee. Sorry, TMI.
On to the best part of camping....the food! We have had an extremely dry summer and a burn ban was in place so no campfire! That was such a bummer. But, we still ate lots of yummy food. My favorite summer breakfast was the perfect thing to bring camping....yogurt, fresh berries and sliced almonds. So delicious!
Eating outside was fun too! What's better than drinking hot tea/coffee in your pjs while hanging out in the woods?!
Morning doggy snuggles.
The highlight for the boys was riding on Grandpa's tailgate.
Happy Hour Camping Style.
And more about food. Cheetos Baby! Grandma and Grandpa gave George some Cheetos for his birthday. He declared, "you may kiss the bride", and then hugged and kissed the bag. Ha! Now, that's love.
Good thing I brought some too for everyone else to eat.
Cheetos are perfect for the woods....where no orange fingers can make things yucky.
The campground was at the beach which was fun. There were also putt putt golf, shuffleboard, and a big hot tub for entertainment.
Everyone loved putt putt golf!
Part 2 of Camping coming up tomorrow. George got to celebrate his birthday while camping!
A Few Of My Favorite....Camping Things
Wearing PJ pants all day...notice Tuba wearing his while golfing.
Walking through the campsites and looking at everyone's setup. I especially love campsites that have a vase of flowers on the picnic table.
Flipping pancakes on my outdoor gas grill while Cam cooked kielbasa on the webber.
Laying in my cozy bed in the morning while Cam put the kettle on...and then kids coming to snuggle with me.
Sitting around and visiting.
