  1. We make it a must to go camping at least twice a year. You create very special moments that only come with camping .

    Girl!!! Your beach camping story had me all pumped. Convinced the boys it would be fun and headed to the beach. I put the tent up the same way I have done many times before (in the back yard lol) and it was so windy the tent was crooked. Took it down and wanted to give up. Tried it one more time and with the rain fly and that was the game changer. There was sand EVERYWHERE! My firewood wouldnt burn and Im pretty sure David didnt sleep a wink. But the boys are. Still talking about swimming in the ocean and grandma and grandpa camping out with us. So much that we are going to do it again. YAY!

    I also didn’t grow up in an outdoorsy family, but the minute I got a taste of camping, we decided to make it a lifestyle! I love being outdoors, hiking, fishing, water sports, snow sports, basically anything where I’m enjoying nature. I wish I would have done it as a kid but better late than never. 🙂

  4. I’m not an outdoor girl, but the KOA campsite would be acceptable to me 😉 lol
    I’ve always thought camping is a wonderful way to spend some quality time with the family but is it really a cheap vacation alternative? I recently read another post where the mom blogger said camping was not as cheap as she thought it would be.

      For us, it definitely was a less expensive vacation. It depends what you want to accomplish for your vacation. It can get expensive if you don’t already have equipment but then again, you could find an affordable location like KOA. And, we spent more time simply enjoying the outdoors. That didn’t cost much. 🙂
