Hello world!!! We our back from our annual camping trip. 9 days with 5 kids and some rain but we survived. It was really nice to get away for a bit and not have to worry about the house and bills and everyday life. Our 2 nephews came with us, which keeps our older one busy since he has 2 little sisters.
Camping is our favorite little get away. It's fairly cheap and everyone has a great time. We went to the beach, where I got burnt like always. We had a scavenger hunt that was so much fun I recommend every family to do one at least once in your life lol. I made a list for everyone and gave them all bags. We all just went through the camp ground and woods looking for things like flowers,acorns,pinecones,something yellow,a feather and more. I loved seeing what everyone found.
During the last weekend we celebrated our youngest 9th birthday. The whole family came up and we went to the beach and cooked on the girl and has cake and drinks by the fire. She got a camper and a jeep for her American Girl Doll so that was the high light of her trip.
It was a great trip and hopefully before the summer ends we can go back for at least a weekend. Ughhh now I'm still doing laundry and putting away all this camping crap. Feels like we took half the house with us!!
Hope everyone is having a great summer!!!
