We began camping years ago when our big boys were just little guys. We started out in Kampin' Kabins at the KOA, then moved onto a tent, then bought a camper. We all loved camping so much but stopped when we moved to our property because we live out in the beautiful woods now and it feels like a campground here. But, we did miss the fun of camping so a couple of weeks ago we rented a Kampin' Kabin at the same place we started way back when in Boone,NC.
I'll admit we were a little scared how it was going to go with a toddler and a 3 month old.
It was AWESOME!
We had the best time together. We got there and I immediately set up. I love making the beds and setting the table. I love to make it homey in the cabin.
The boys played in the pool. They were crazy, in my opinion, as it was cold outside and even colder in the pool, but they didn't care they just wanted to have fun. Joseph played on the playground and had a great time seeing the baby goats and donkeys in the animal area. We had a lovely dinner together by the campfire, listen to some bluegrass music playing in the rec hall and then went for a lovely walk on a mountain road. We then came back and played games together.
The kids had a great time. They didn't ask to watch a movie or anything. They just wanted to be together.
We all sat on the porch later and talked while I nursed the baby in the swing. It was so wonderful. I can't wait to do it again.
We may just have to purchase a camper again as we all didn't realize how much we missed it.
Juliana loves camping!

Our cozy bed!
Matthew lovin' on his baby sister.
It's so neat to see Joey playing on the same things the boys did at his age. He loves to climb the stairs.
