It seems that my wife and I are much more excited about this adventure than our children. My children keep asking if we are going to roast marshmallows. That’s all they care about.
We can roast marshmallows at home. What is it about marshmallows that is so wonderful anyways?
Hopefully tonight will be a great experience, but unfortunately I don’t have the best track record with tent camping. It is always because of the tent. They never seem to set up right for me.
We bought a tent that was on sale at Kmart for $99, it sleeps 8 people. I wanted to buy the tent from Walmart that sets up in one minute, but that tent was $250.
I am praying for patience with this inanimate object, the tent. I must remember that as a parent, I represent Christ in my actions to my children. If I am impatient with the cheaper tent, my children will not see the proper image of Christ reflected in my actions.
My goal is to have a wonderful time with my children at Moraine State park, and not let any mishaps or frustration destroy our time together. I will post my camping with young children tips tomorrow after the trip.
Have you ever went camping before with young children? If so, what advice or funny stories can you share?
