Happy Camping

Yesterday I mentioned that we bought our first camper, and we can't wait to head out in this weekend in it for the first time.  Despite the limitations of tent camping, we have enjoyed many trips.

When I was seven and a half months pregnant with Eli, we headed out to South Dakota.  We went in June, but it was in the 30's and 40's all week and rained the whole time we were there.  

Nontheless, we visited Mount Rushmore, Devils Tower Wyoming, and the Bandlands.

Then we had kids.... Haha!

Our camping adventures took a backseat aside from an anniversary camping trip to Mammoth Cave, an overnight trip with Eli, an attempt to redeem that trip with Eli by pitching a tent in the backyard, and finally a last ditch effort to enjoy the great outdoors with a weekend stay with both kids.

Turns out that the Watson children do enjoy our little past-time and actually requested a camper over another trip to Disney World.  We were more than happy to oblige, and can't wait for our first trip this week.  We are staying close since this is a trial run.  We will be staying in Cave City for three nights at Jellystone Park!  It's extremely family oriented and has lots of free activities for kids.  We will be playing putt-putt, jumping on the sky pillow, and participating in the Marti Gras parade.  We can't wait!!!
