Camping Preparation

Hard to believe its been three years since we've been camping!  Last time Desmond was two, and after a nearly sleepless night we decided it would be awhile before we did that again.  Well, the memories of no sleep have faded and we're trying not to notice that Kaylynn is only two and much more sensitive to her environment than Desmond is.  Last year we joined my family for a day camping trip, but this year we decided to give staying overnight in a tent a try. 

Our new huge tent arrived today.  It will accommodate our family for years to come with three rooms for privacy when needed and a 10 x 17 footprint.  I have been looking for a tent for weeks searching stores and Craigslist and finally found this one on sale on Amazon.  I like that it's Coleman and was less than $100 brand new. 

Of course we had to set it up in the playroom to check it out, and it barely fit.  It was a nice distraction for the kids today.  Also I think the more Kaylynn can get used to it the better.
Now I just need to prep all the food and make goodies that won't disrupt Kaylynn's diet.  Then it's on to the packing list.  I'm looking forward to arriving at Green Peter Lake on Friday!
