Well, we survived our first ever family camping trip! We actually had a great time, despite Leia freaking out over the bugs in the bathroom and refusing to go half the time, and waking up with Elijah FREEZING because he took his socks off and was out of his sleep bag, and Jacob, well, being Jacob:) It was good wholesome family fun and recommend to any family thinking about doing it, if we could do it, anyone can do it!
The drive only took a little over 2 hours I believe which was nice. Once we got there it was hard to believe we were still in New York, it was nothing like the City or Long Island, that is for sure! I felt like I was back in GA... it was actually a nice change for us!
After we checked in we found our campsite and were surprised just how close to the river we were, we pitched our tent right next to it, I joked that if a big wind came we would be floating down the river. The spot was great though and close to the bathrooms!! Chris set up the tent with no problem and then we started to set things up a little. Kids were so excited that they could just ride their bikes all day and play on the swings, again, a nice change to our daily indoor lives. Then we headed to the pool for a little bit before dinner.
