    Looks like an awesomely fun time despite the sleep issues… somehow you can make it through on less sleep when you are camping anyways… something about the great outdoors and fresh air?? I think there is a lot to be said for resort camping. Free wifi for example. But sometimes it is awesome to totally unplug and get away in the ‘woods’. Can’t wait to see how you manage to organize your trailer – that will be a feat and a half given their ridiculous proportions. Best of luck!!

      It’s very true – for some reason, the sleep isn’t THAT important when you’re outside. Though, you’d think that the fresh air and running non-stop would tucker the kids out?!? It seemed to do the opposite, strangely.

      Free wifi… cable… oh resort camping, you are pretty awesome. I won’t lie.

      I can’t wait to see how the trailer comes together eventually, either. You’d think that there would be better built-in storage in a box-on-wheels meant to carry a pared-down version of an entire household’s contents. But sadly, there isn’t. The storage is hopelessly lacking – and kind of silly, when you think about it.

      Oh, it was lovely, Mel. I don’t ever turn my nose up at a good resort campground! 😉

    Oh what a fun glimpse into your first camping trip of the season. The girls look like they had so much fun. I can’t wait to see the tour AND I adore that picture of you and Lila playing mini golf 🙂

      Oh thank you! (It’s actually little Lucy in that photo, but I only have myself to blame for name mix-ups as I was the one who thought “Let’s alliterate their names! It will never be a problem!”)

      The girls did have a great time. They don’t care about sleep. They prefer to be awake for more hours. It’s just their mother that has a tiny problem with it.

      I’m hoping that this trailer tour lives up to the anticipation I’ve created. Man… I’d better jazz it up a bit! 🙂

    Looks wonderful. You could try pool noodles to designate their sleeping places. Sew them to a flat sheet. It will give them boundaries. Then have a camping routine with story and lights out. Some of the fun of camping are the whispers and giggles at bedtime. You are making me wish for those camping days of summer.

      Donna – that’s a great idea! I’d never considered a pool noodle as a boundary maker!

      I’m hoping that we can cultivate a routine that involves whispers and giggles instead of shrieks and running around the trailer (I am actually dealing with that kind of chaos!). But so much of the day is filled with fun and laughter that I can’t not camp. Operation Sleep More While Camping is in full effect around here. 🙂

    You are such a brave soul! Glad you guys had fun, but it really sucks that sleep was so crappy! And I totally would go with the resort style camping as well – if I were a camping gal! Jenna @ Rain on a Tin Roof

      You watch out, Ms. Jenna – I have a sneaky suspicion that you may end up being a camping girl! These kids end up making the decision for us!

      And yes, resort-style camping is pretty fabulous. I always enjoy myself!
