|Our new instant pop up tent.|
Here are some of the reasons that it was all worth it:
Watching the kids play together and make up games outside. There were explorer games, chasing games and games that involved catching escaped babies. In preparation for the camp fire, they collected leaves to put into the fire.
Sitting around the campfire is one of my favourite things about camping. The kids liked it too, especially when the marshmallows came out.
The fresh air, the outdoors and the evening sunsets made a pretty spectacular package.

|Josh catching some waves.|
|Jack was afraid of the loud waves, but thought it was funny when I got my feet wet.|
|The kids loved catching things in their nets. It was usually rocks and sand, but an adventure all the same.|

|I love this photo of Jamie playing in the water|
|Look, I can take a photo once in a while|
Spending the weekend with good friends who understand that a morning Starbucks is a must also made it worthwhile.
*Already noted for next time, group photo taken at the beginning of the weekend when we are more clean and less greasy.
** Where is Jack you ask? He refused to be in the photo and was in the car watching a movie. How old is he? Oh that's right, he is two.
How do you feel about tent camping with kids?
