I cannot believe it has been 7 years... it started when Taryn was 3 years old. That was my rule -- you must be 3 to participate. Therefore, Kate has technically only been on 5 camping trips... but, who's counting. Every year, except this one sadly, Taryn and Kate's cousin, Erika, has joined us... This is a super fun tradition that I have loved doing with the kids. The formula seems to work every year -- pitch a tent, have a playground nearby, roast a hot dog, and make s'mores... a winning combination every time.
I am overcome by how quickly the girls are growing up -- but camping is significantly easier every year because of this! The kids were essentially babies when we started this thing. I decided to pull out some of the previous year's photos and walk down memory lane. I'm so thankful to have such a fun tradition with the kids... It is something I know we all look forward to every summer.
