Camp Out Essentials

I've been camping many times in my life. I've roughed it in the wilderness, hiked many trails, and fished my fair share of lakes. This past week, however, I learned an entirely new way to camp from my girls. Here's the rundown:

When you want to go camping, there are a few essential things you need to take. Along with your sleeping bag, pillow and bedtime snacks, you will probably also need your toy cat piano (just in case there's a spontaneous need for a dance party). Also, it's important that you bring along ALL your stuffed animals, not just your favorites, because you don't want any of them to feel left out (it's a good idea to have a big stack of books to read to these animals, too--you don't want them to get bored). And don't forget, if you don't have at least half your toys stored away in various purses, sacks and bags, you may regret it sometime late in the night. Last, but not least, you must have not one, not two, but THREE changes of clothes. It would be scandalous not to be wearing the height of fashion while walking around the campsite.

Luckily, the camp out took place in the backyard. I don't think we're ready to trek into the wilderness just yet!

Is there a camper big enough for that much equipment? I would assume you would NEED a camper since hiking all of this stuff into a camping spot would require a VERY large backpack.

Ha ha! Luckily, we haven't had to find out yet. :)
