It all started when we went camping on a whim this past summer. We loaded up last minute and headed for the W I L D. We were craving some unexpected and that’s just what we got!
We were surprised to discover that camping really isn’t that hard. In fact, it’s pretty free and easy. We realized that it’s actually the perfect entertainment for young families. Our kids were amazingly happy and well behaved… their little senses took it all in and they stayed busier than anything we could have possibly planned. Pure heaven for us too! Something about a breath of fresh air and a place to be W I L D + F R E E.
A few things to remember are bikes, books, and a big ice cooler! If you stay at a state park, they have amenities as well as fun seasonal activities to do. We have camped at parks, private sites, and even in the wilderness of our own property at home.
We have a list going of supplies we want to purchase including a bigger tent (we need some growing room.) We believe that braving the wild is the best way we can travel with our kids during this season so we plan to explore much more! We’d love to know tips and advice from family campers. Where are your favorite places to visit? What are your favorite ideas to do?
The photos below are from Devil’s Den in Arkansas. The park had some fun and engaging activities that we really enjoyed. I didn’t include many photos of them because we were so in the moment, but we played a community ball game with all the other families in the site. We observed and listened to bats over the lake at night by sonar, and we learned about reptiles in the park and got to watch them eat their prey! The boys loved this one of course…
Here’s to new adventures and braving the W I L D!
