Every year, we go on an adventurous camping trip with our friends Emily and John. And every year, our adventures seem to lessen (our hikes are easier, our bedtimes are earlier, etc)… and yet our trips seem MUCH more adventurous with little ones in tow! This was Milly and June’s 2nd time camping, and Lyndon’s first! What a joy it is to embrace sleepless nights and outdoor adventures, making the best memories with these little girls. We had a blast!

My favorite memories from this trip:

– Lyndon and Milly and Will and myself all cramming into a 4 person tent with 2 blow up mattresses and a pack n play
– Smores by the fire
– Hiking to the top of a beautiful waterfall with Lyndon asleep on my chest
– Milly and June giggling and laughing in the woods together
– Taking a nap in the hammock

We are going camping with our little for the first time this weekend! Our son is 4 and our daughter is 1 so I’m trying to figure out how to fit all of us into a tent with a pack and play. Any advice? Also how did you keep the girls cool at night?

What do you do with babies who can’t walk (but can crawl) and don’t want to be held or confined all day?

We are so glad you are here!
