After our first camping trip as a family of 3 we are tired, sore, wizened, and already thinking about our next camping trip.
While we had a great time making memories as a new family, we learned a lot. Hopefully our experiences will encourage you to have fun in the great outdoors with your little ones too!
First, here are some of the things that we did well:
•We just went for it. It’s easy to be intimidated by camping with kids, especially babies. But we loved camping before kids, and want to raise our kids enjoying one of our favorite past times.
•We kept baby warm. Between long sleeves, hats, double layered pants, and jackets, baby stayed very warm. At night we wrapped him in a blanket by the campfire. Then, he slept between us which was good for him… but not for us.
•Screened-in awning to keep bugs away from baby and meal time. Brandon found a huge 11’x9′ screened-in awning with magnetic closing doors at Costco for $90. That thing was amazing! Looking forward to using this in the summertime when there are lots of mosquitoes.
