Family Camping Trip

The last time Isaiah and I went camping was for our 1st anniversary, 2 years ago, when I was 4-months pregnant with Evan. It was so fun to add Evan to our group this time. He was SUCH a good camper!

What we did to keep Evan comfortable and happy:

  • Nap BEFORE leaving
  • Spread out large picnic blanket for crawl space
  • Jogging stroller for walks
  • Snacks
  • Diaper wipes to keep hands/face clean
  • Crib mattress to sleep on
  • Lots of blankets to stay warm

Matching morning pj's

We found a campsite near Lake Tahoe at Fallen Leaf Lake. Our campground was a 5 minute walk to the lake which was peaceful and beautiful--and much less crowded than Tahoe. In the morning we went on a drive over to Emerald Bay to enjoy the view.

Evan went to sleep really well on his crib mattress with blankets piled on top of him, but part-way through the night he decided to move off the pad and sleep on the bottom of my sleeping bag. I guess next time we'll save the hassle of packing the mattress.
