You know how right after you planned your wedding you thought, "Man, I'm really good at this. I should plan weddings!" No? How about right after you had a baby and you thought, "Man, I'm really good at this. I should be a doula!" Anybody? Okay, maybe it's just me...
Well, I'm doing it again. In my adult, plan-meals-myself life, I've been camping, like, 5 times so I'm totally an expert now.
A c t u a l l y --- I googled and compiled and learned by watching and have put together a checklist that I for real used to pack tonight. My friend, Sara, and I were fortunate enough to camp with some truly awesome women last time and we were inspired. So inspired in fact that we are back at it one month later.
The last/first time Tim and I went camping together, our family looked like this:
And this gal doesn't require diapers or pajamas or butt cream. Nope, all this gal needs is a cozy, warm spot to rest her bones.
So here's the list:
For this trip, we will have four families over 2 nights. We have decided to do family style dinners as a whole group and then breakfast and lunch with our own packs. We will have tacos on our first night and chili on our second, pancakes and cereal for breakfast, sandwiches for lunch.
One thing we hastily forgot to do last time was secure our food before going to bed. We woke up to find minimal damage - one avocado and been ripped open and eaten, save the pit - but we will make sure it is locked tight and in a safe spot this time.
This list could very well change after this trip and will certainly change as our families grow and change.
And we're out! See you on Sunday with dirt under my fingernails!
