My husband and I loved to camp during our pre-children years of marriage. We knew camping would be more complicated once our family expanded, but we were determined to make it work! It is so easy to slip into the habit of saying, “Well, next year, when they’re older…” and suddenly find yourself ten years later with the tent still in storage.
Our desire is for our kids to never know a time when they haven’t camped. Our goals are threefold:
- Spend time together as a family, away from the hubbub and busyness of day-to-day life.
- Learn to appreciate the outdoors and not be afraid of nature.
- Live a simpler life for a few days, to better appreciate those who live this way all the time.
I’m going to chronicle our journey as we navigate the ups and downs of camping with small children in tow. Since we live in Atlanta, most of our camping is in Georgia state parks. I’m hoping to add guest posts along the way to expand this. We also prefer to camp in tents, and preferably away from the RVs.
I invite you to join me in our adventures along the way!
