I shouldn't be so surprised that i had fun camping-- I also had fun camping in 2016-- remember!
We went with 8 other families, and the rest of them stayed Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights. We only stayed on Thursday night (and the whole day Friday). I do NOT think I would have been a happy camper for 2 more nights. But one night? SO FUN. (We want to camp again in October, and Ben really wants to stay 2 nights, which makes sense because setting up a campsite is a HUGE pain in the ass.)
I let the kids pack for themselves, giving them this list: (The literate ones read it to the ones who can't read. TEAM WORK).
This is the picture I sent our friends when we were supposed to be in the damn car already.
As soon as we got there, the kids went full on Lord of the Flies and ran wild in the woods, which was awesome.
I brought my French press, but the water took so dang long to boil, I had to send the kids to the camp store for coffee while I waited.
Our visitors left a handprint on the grill. Ew.
Beer for breakfast.
