Our First Family Camping Trip

Two weekends ago, we went on our first annual camping trip with our friends Annie, Josh and their sweet 2-year-old, Ellie. We rented a cabin at a cute little campground in Plymouth, WI and gave the kiddies some mild exposure to the great outdoors.

Our cabin was pretty compact, but actually quite nice. It had two bedrooms with a kitchen and private bathroom… we were really roughing it 🙂

Mark and I enjoy tent camping, but could not figure out how we could make it work with Charlotte’s sleep schedule. So, we opted for the cabin!

What was interesting though was the fact that we shared a bedroom with the little one. This is something we haven’t done for at least 6 months, if not longer. We had Charlie in the pack-and-play that literally JUST fit behind the bedroom door. Meaning, at night, we had to squeeze into the room as quiet as can be in hopes of not waking the babes. It did not help that our bed was the loudest most squeaky bed I have ever experienced.

Thankfully, Charlotte was a champ and slept through the night both nights, with only mild stirring when mommy and daddy came in and made a rucous.

The campground had a miniature golf course, playgrounds, two pools and tons of activities. While Charlotte is still way too young to partake in the planned activities, all-in-all, it was a great time!

  1. FUN!!! What wonderful memories! (And that pic of her lounging on the pool chair? Oh my goodness, so much cuteness!). 🙂
    I feel the same way about camping… It’s so much fun, but I’m not brave enough to do it with a baby so young. So we rented a cabin for October, and we’ll be doing our little getaway then. 🙂
