So true. I'm thankfull that we camped as a family when I was growing up. I was 9 months old on my first camping trip and I haven't looked back. Now that I have a family of my own......DS's was 6 months old for his 1st camping trip and he absolutely loves it. Sometimes he just stands over by the p'up in the driveway and says....."camp, camp" My hope as that as he grows older, he will continue to embrace the outdoors and nature as I have all these years. Here's a little of DS communing with nature: Toys????? Who needs stinkin' toys? That Primal Scream! Showing DW the finer points of leveling front to back! Ahhhh....this is nice. I'm so relaxed! Thanks for taking me campin' daddy.....I love it!
