The Best Part of Camping

We love camping. Granted we have a camper so we're not exactly roughing it. But I do enjoy the woods, the outdoors, the hot dogs, the s'mores, and the relaxation. Throw in a bunch of friends and it certainly makes for good times. The best part though? Jillian napped beautifully and consistently and each nap was like 2-3 hours. It was amazing. Normally I'm lucky if all of her naps combined equal that amount. With naps like that it is almost worth moving into the camper! She slept well at night too, but I didn't as she apparently moves around a lot in her sleep and is quite the bed hog. It makes me glad she sleeps in her crib.

I'd post pictures but after arriving I discovered that my camera was out of batteries. Hopefully I can snag some of my friends pics off facebook or something to share soon.

awesome. I freaking LOVE camping, but your idea of camping. I'm not too fond of "roughing it".

I've never camped in a camper before. I would consider giving it a try. But sleeping in a sleeping bag on the ground... no thanks. I'll be at the Marriott.

A camper is a definite plus...I could never rough it in a tent. My husband knows this about me and usually just books a hotel and deals with daytime hiking/fishing fun. What can I say...I'm not a "rough it" kinda girl either.

Too bad your camera was out of batteries - that stinks.

Glad you all had great and Jillian slept awesome!

We're still in Maine - be back home on Wed though.

That is the only way I camp too. I'm definitely not a tent and no shower/toilet kinda girl. Can't wait to see pics!

I love the woods too - but my version of camping involves a cabin with a bathroom, 3 bedrooms and a deck! Lol. Sounds like a great time - and you are a lucky woman with a baby that can sleep in a different place!

I agree with 'roughing it' meaning you have only 1 bathroom with a shower, haha! I am also a cabin in the woods kind of gal & that's what I want for my 30th birthday weekend!
Wish you had pictures, but I would seriously consider the camper as Jillian's bedroom idea, haha!

When did you first go camping with Jillian? We don't have a camper, but am thinking of going next month with a tent. LadyBug will be about 12 weeks...too early?

That's some good napping!

Hubby and I's idea of camping is the same - we love to camp but you can hardly call it 'roughing it.'

It sounds like Jillian loves camping, too!
