Camping Adventures Begin for 2012

This past weekend we had a family event to attend and decided to take the kidlets camping instead of staying with my in-laws.  The campground was pretty good — a good beach for swimming, a nice little playground, Saturday night movies in a field, and close to where we needed to be.The only real problem we had was the Small Fry.  This year, he’s just old enough to think the tent is some kind of giant toy.  The first night, when we put the kidlets to bed in the tent, we heard HOURS of giggling coming from that boy!  Why was he giggling?  Well, not only could he see big brother and sister, but he discovered that he can tear apart his play pen and even climb out of it!  I think I reassembled his mattress and everything about half a dozen times the first night.  The second night, I got a little wiser and after the first time he’d pulled up the mattress to “nest” in the hollows formed in the fabric bottom between the support rails, I took the time to velcro the mattress in place where he couldn’t reach to undo it.  Only about 1 hour of giggling that night…  (eye roll)

We’ll be heading out camping again next weekend as a family so we’ll see how it goes the second time around…
