Today we decided to camp out in a tent with our little munchkins for the first time ever. With some help from Granny and Gramps we put up our ridiculously large tent on the site of an old railway track. We then embarked on an adventure which could either make or break potential future camping trips.
Munashe found the whole adventure very exciting. Playing with torches in the dark was a favourite.
Sleeping in the tent left Zori a little confused, instead of wanting to go in the tent, she was asking to go back in the car! Before settling down to sleep we told each other stories. Zori told us the one about the Fox going into the Tipi!
I’m happy to report that we all slept. Even though our tent is huge we were all snuggled up into one of the sleeping pods. The morning was glorious and the sun was hot. Bee’s buzzed around the wild flowers and the butterflies danced. The birds sang many different songs and we ate bananas for breakfast.
The little munchkins clearly didn’t get enough sleep as they were back in the land of nod by noon.
We then embarked on ‘tent down’ which was faster than tent up, although we did fail to squeeze everything back into the tent bag!
So time for the verdict….
Will we take our munchkins camping again?
Yes please, that is with a smaller tent and after taking a course in ‘How to Pack Super Light’ so we can squeeze everything into our car! Tips please:)
