This has been the first time in a long time that we have been able to camp as a family. With me working 6 days a week it has left us little time to camp as a family. Woooo Hooo for us I don't have to do that any more and family campouts are back on the top of the list!!!!!
We had a great family camping trip this past long weekend. We camped in one of our favorite spots in the White Mountains. We went fishing, hiking, geocaching, read books and enjoyed the rain and hail (yes we got hailed on!!) and the kidos built an awesome fort!! I wanted to be super prepared and not have to take a whole bunch of stuff so I made list after list, pre-cooked a bunch of the food. Searched Wal-Mart for the kidos favorite Jiffy-Pop, and made sure to have a treat for each night we camped.
It all worked out well and we had a great time, but I wished I had a better check list for meals, activities and things we needed to bring. So thanks to the blogging world I found the Perfect Camping Check List over at Somewhat Simple.com. I was soooo bummed I did not have it for our last campout but next time......... look out!!! Thanks Sarah for sharing your creativity and organizational skills!
