Our first camping trip of the year is in the books!! With each camping trip we go on, I am loving camping more. We watched a hysterical camping parody by Youtuber, Ryan George, and he says, “If we haul enough equipment out here, we can almost make it seem like we have a not-as-good set up as what we have at the house.” We laughed so hard because yes, there is not a thing about camping that is truly convenient. It takes work to pack and get food ready for a family to be in the woods for a couple days. And I’m just talking about car camping, not even backpacking which takes more planning ahead. In spite of all that, there is so much value in completely unplugging from the world, if even for just a little bit. While we’re camping, there is no worry about cleaning our house or the 10,000 things that are piled up on the to-do list. There are no activities to plan or rush to like on other vacations. There is usually no cell service to distract us from being present as a family. For me, that fills my cup regardless of being away from the conveniences of home.
