Happy Camper

Yep, we are happy campers!  My husband and I both grew up camping with our families and have so many great memories. This past weekend we just got back from Shabbona Lake State Park, IL which is only 10 minutes from our house, but yet seems so far away. We ended up getting a lake view to set up camp.   We love hanging around the campire, making s’mores, telling stories, playing games, going for hikes, and so on.  Camping is a great way to work as a team too and build great family relationships.  It is challenging at times, especially with four young children, but the more we camp…the easier it gets.  We keep a bin of fun activities for the kids to keep busy on the down times: coloring books, card games, binoculars, etc…
    We are excited about many trips this summer to a church family camp, Kohler State Park in Wisconsin, and Colorado.  BTW: we did not all camp in the tent above…  haha!  that little tent is the ‘playroom.’
