We had planned to go camping this weekend and have family out to our campsite for John-John’s first birthday party. In an effort to be frugal, I didn’t reserve a campsite for this weekend.
I guess I should have.
There are none available. Since Chloe is 2 and has only been camping once in her life (she was 6 months then) she won’t know the difference between the real deal and our special “back yard” campout that we are having instead.
Now instead of saving just the $10 reservation fee, I’ll also be saving the $30/night fee. We’ll have just as much fun in the back yard with the sprinkler, BBQ and sparkers I have lined up.
I am disappointed that we aren’t going to the campground but it certainly is a cost savings and given our tight budget right now…maybe this is an answer to prayer. We’re planning to try again in September so I guess this one will be our practice camping.
Do you have a great ‘camping with littles’ tip or fun camping activity? Love to hear it so please share!
See you on Wednesday for the next edition of Sizzling Summer where we will talk about camping!
