After our camping trip Josh and I talked about what was good and what wasn't. One thing that stood out to me was that I hadn't planned enough activities to keep the kids busy during the times that Josh and I were busy. So this past camping trip I set out to make that better.
And even though Josh groaned about me packing another box of stuff it worked. Stamps while we set up the tent.
Painting with water while we made dinner
Special hot chocolate while I washed dishes
And of course learning the art of roasting marshmellows
A balloon and a plastic cup makes pom pom launchers
And moving the activities to the strawberry patch field changed things when the campground became boring. Learning to keep camping fun. Yes, that is better.
