Our family went on our first camping trip last Friday with some friends. I’m not sure why we decided to do this in June while living in Florida but we did and overall it was lots of fun. The girls and husband loved sleeping in a tent outside, me…not so much. Sleeping on roots and rocks while listening to animal noises all around me is not my idea of a good night sleep. Not to mention the fact that our tent was close to a very active set of train tracks. I counted at least 4 trains while I was “sleeping”. All that to say it was something different to do as a family and we created many great memories together.

Our awesome friends who went with us.
The girls had fun playing outside, making smores, and swimming in the springs. They were great and have already told me they want to go again. I promised my friends that I would try it one more time in the Fall before giving up on camping.
Now we are off to the Keys with some friends who rented a house right on the water. We will be gone 5 days swimming, snorkeling, relaxing, and boating. Now that is my kind of vacation.
