My sister Laura lives in
outerspace Texas, and we miss each other tons. Two years ago we decided that this summer we would go camping together in Colorado, which is a one day drive for each of us. We invited any other family members who wanted to come, and since our family is awesome, it’s turned into a family reunion, even though Colorado is a two-day drive for our California family. Oh wait…that’s us now, as of 8 days ago. So we are driving 2 days to camp with a total of 23 family members, 13 of whom are under the age of 10. One of them is my 3 month old baby.
It’s like Christmas all over again. My brother Eric told one of his coworkers last December that he was going to be spending the holidays in a house with 20 relatives, and after seeing the look on the guy’s face had to clarify, “No, you don’t understand, we actually like each other.” I am so excited to hang out with my family in the middle of nowhere, dirt-smeared, booty-frozen, and sleep deprived. It’s going to be epic. If you feel like sharing any tips for camping with kids, I’m all ears.
